Day 5 without wine morning thoughts

I feel good when I wake up. I am not parched and hungover.

I can meditate, exercise and stretch easily and happily because I don’t feel like shit from drinking the night before.

I didn’t smoke any cigarettes and I didn’t cough all night (at the end of my drinking days I was smoking a half pack a day all at night when I drank! Yuck). Thus, I feel way better this morning and not clearing my throat constantly.

My face is way less puffy and the bags under my eyes are less dark already.

My weight has dropped 4.2 pounds in 4 days from the alcohol bloat I have been carrying around with me.

My patience with my kids is improving daily.

I hugged hubby in bed this morning. Haven’t done that much in years because I felt like crap in the morning from drinking.

My sleep was better, but I have been having to pee a lot at night. I’m wondering if this has to do with my body detoxing?

I recall some vivid dreams. I haven’t recalled dreams in a long time.

So as I enter into my new day ahead of me I am grateful for this community and I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to make my life better.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the saying “you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with” and thinking “wow, thank God I’m not a raging alcoholic or drug addict then”. I am really thinking about my friendships and how this new lifestyle will change them… and I’m actually quite fine with it.

More on that later. I need to ponder it longer to clearly identify how I will handle it and how I feel about those friendships moving forward.

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.

  1. Sounds so positive.
    Yes, lots of time to think about friendships etc. Just focus on yourself for now.
    Body is rehydrating and getting used to all sorts of changes .. it needs time to settle down.
    Such a great feeling when you notice positive physical, emotional and mental changes.
