Day 11 2019

Last night wasn’t too bad.  I had such a headache on Day 8 that it felt like a hangover, it was a good reminder of what I don’t ever want to feel again.  Still tired but that could be because I am going to bed so late helping my daughter etc… My son had a hockey game and as much as I didn’t want to head out into the cold ( it is damn cold here).  Breaking up the night is helpful as are Dairy Milk Chocolate bars- yum!

It is so funny in early sobriety the days seem to creep by sooo slowly.  I cannot believe it is only 11 days.  It feels like a lifetime already.

Making a plan for the weekend is really important to stay sober.  Take it from someone who does day 1 to 20, oh so regularly!  You cannot carry on as normal and just not drink.  I have booked in 2 spin classes for Sat and Sun AM.  I have found that booking these classes really helps as I have to pay for them if I don’t cancel by 5pm the night before and they are hard ones that I would die in if I was hungover in any form.  I die anyway not hungover.   The shame of paying and not going gets me up and out of the house.  Then locked into a dark room and shamed into exercising really works for me- LOL!!  I feel great the entire day when I do this.

Happy Friday, please share your tips for staying sober.

I just updated my title to day 11- I thought I was on Day 10- foggy brain!

  1. Thanks for the great tip. I do day 1-45 regularly, 3 month chunks, 6 month chunks, but still fall in the pot hole. But I don’t blog, thinking about it. Thank you for sharing your experience!

  2. eating ice cream, and going to bed early help keep me sober. Too lazy to exercise tho, I’d happily forfeit the exercise class money to stay in bed longer.


    1. I here you! I have fought the exercise for sooo long but it takes the angsty edge out of me and I do feel better. However, I would rather lie in bed too but my husband is a bit tight with the pennies and would kick me out of bed knowing I have to pay for it if I don’t go 🙂
