New Year... hoping to make significant progress with my alcohol use. Will continue trying to limit as much as i can and eventually stop... one day at a time :)

Making this thread for accountability and welcome anyone else who has their own goals to join me x

Slipped a bit yesterday and had 5 drinks.
Thinking about going to my first smart recovery meeting on Friday. Just see what they are like/ if they could be helpful..

Worse day yesterday- 6.5 drinks.

Going to try and turn things around again today. Just need to plan some things for the afternoons to make it easier. Decide i will check out the smart group on friday. Can't hurt, can it?!

I'm in! If I remember to post that is. Lol How do u feel the next day after so many drinks? I know for me, a big motivator for me to cut down on drinking is how much I hate trying to run a household and keep up w/ a toddler while hungover.

Jan 1st and 2nd: 3 drinks each
Yesterday and today will be zero drinks

Good luck everyone!

^ good luck to you too, neverenough. I hope this year is kinder yo you.

I had 13 drinks both yesterday and on Wednesday. I wish i did feel worse the day after, as it would be a good incentive to stop. Unfortunately, it doesn't leave with a hangover or anything. I just KNOW it isn't good for my health...

Going to the smart recovery group today. Hoping to learn some skills to cope with urges and anxiety in the afternoons.

^^Yep, maybe next week. :) Are u on any meds to help with anxiety?

Thursday night: 4.5 drinks spread out over 6 hours.
Last night: 5 cans of high alcohol content beer, so probably means 7 or 8 drinks

^ hope you're doing okay.
Thank you for your support. My doc isn't big on medications, so is reluctant to prescribe anything for the anxiety. Supposed to doing breathing and stuff, which helps sometimes (when I'm not that anxious) but otherwise feels pretty useless and impossible when I'm in the midst of a panic attack.

Haven't been doing real well with this. 4-8 drinks the past few days. Going to keep trying though... still hoping to get to the recovery group

No booze since last Friday. This is the longest I've gone in awhile. :)

Thanks. Though I have to admit, it's lack of money and my mother in law's judgement that is mostly keeping my drinking to a minimum.

^ I'm sorry ((hugs)) sounds like you are in a tough situation. I hope things get easier soon for you, but still believe you are inspiring and fighting so hard. That takes a lot of courage x

^ that's so awesome!!!

I had a better week last week- a couple of free days and 1 or 2 drinks the others.
The last couple of days have been bad again 6 or 7 drinks. Hoping to get myself back on track.
