Welcome Helsbels! I had the same issue with sleep, and also experienecd anxiety and depression - once I stopped drinking these things markedly improved! You might find in the short term that insomnia is a problem, it can be a side effect of alcohol withdrawal. My sleep did take quite a while to settle down, but I mostly just told myself that at least when I did sleep it was proper sleep! I did also take sleeping aids. These days I sleep really well, and my mental health issues are a shadow of what they were. The best thing about being sober I think (there are so many amazing things it can be hard to pick) is that you start to grow again as a person - I'm so much more resilient these days, and I even quite like myself, not something I thought I'd ever say!Insomnia is a big reason I have turned to wine, I know I fall asleep straight away but maybe the reality is im just passing out??
I second Sue's recommendation of Allen Carr/Jason Vale, and I also really liked Catherine Grey's the unexpected joys of being sober.
Well done for getting here! Have a good read around as there's masses of info, support and tips to be found. Do look up the Road to Abstinence thread, which os great for reflection and inspiration.
