Brothers I am on a roll. I want to drink to celebrate this accomplishment. Instead I'll weakly ejaculate into a tissue or sock.

Everything is getting better. I crave poison but then I think of the energy I wake up with and how much time I wasted hitting the bottle and the consequences.

in a few days or so, maybe 10 at the most your gonna hit the pink cloud where your brain recalibrate and you feel like your on some great drugs.

Protip: As a now long term sober dude - no one is gonna judge you if you order a non alcoholic drink. Remember that and don't be worried

This works in most social settings. It's been hard for me because my family are all alcoholics in everything but name -- I was at a wedding with my parents where they were snickering about one of our friends not drinking and claiming to be "clean and sober, lol". I once turned down a drink at like 10am on a holiday and my parents mocked me for it.

That's awesome. I was about 8 days in, last week, and then my wife decided to tell me I needed to leave, so now back on the poison. I need to get cleaned up for sure.

Just a bunch of shit that caught up to me.

The one thing that bothers me is that she was like, "Well, great. Eight days. Good for you. But how do I know you're not going to drink six months from now?" Which is supremely unhelpful but she just doesn't get it.

The only thing in your control (and, therefore, worthy of your mental energy) is choosing each day not to drink.

I know. She doesn't have it in her family (it's pretty much everyone in my family), so when I was like, "I need to take this one day -- hell, one hour -- at a time." And her response was basically, "Uh... just don't drink. This shouldn't be that hard. I don't drink all the time."

I've been there, brother. A counselor once told me (accurately, IME) that when we have 30 days sober, it seems to us like 3 months but it seems to people close to us like 3 days.

I buy it. Hell, I've been in periods where I'm legitimately proud of myself for making it a whole day without drinking. The (understandable) reaction of most non-alcoholics is basically, "uh... good for you?".

They really don't and it's hell to explain.

This has become the one subject on this board that, even if someone's flaming, I'll be supportive on. Quitting (or, for me, trying to quit and failing repeatedly) is one of the hardest things I've gone through.

Good luck brothers! I'm coming up on 7 years, and it really does get easier. Life's weird in the transition, but eventually you'll find new hobbies, lose the cravings, and become indifferent to being around others' drinking.
