327 days sober, which is the most important thing - but the last few days of headaches, severe grumpiness, and flu like symptoms, has shown me that I really don't want to filter too much crap through my body at all. I want to just be free of it all.
A couple of other things that have come to me through the last few days:
- Giving up something you are hooked on sucks. I am reminded to have empathy with people much earlier in their sober journey than me - because alcohol is a damn sight harder to kick (and way more important) than coffee.
- I don't concentrate so much on wanting to drink when I am thinking about the good things I want to do for myself. It works to think about healthy eating and exercise, it's a positive thing - I am not "losing" drinking (or coffee), I am gaining better health.
