Re: General Support and Chat

Kate, hi <:)> It's good that you are looking at potential pitfalls ahead and how they might interfere with your goal of staying AF.

A stumbling block for me at this point was assuming that 6 sober days meant I was "cured". Those thoughts led straight on towards thinking I could have a drink....

Re: The First 7 Days

Good Morning 7 Dayers <:)> I hope you're doing OK. I know how tough these early days are, especially with sleep pattern disruption. CT mentioned meditation and for me that's totally spot on, it really does help. Also the knowledge that rest is the next best thing to sleep. It can be tough to stay on...

Re: Dry January

Welcome to day six of this challenge everyone. Very well done for getting through yesterday. Have a good look in the mirror. Notice how much brighter your eyes are?
