    Last night was the Hardest day of my life

    Sat May 04, 2019 6:45 am

    What a night.
    Yesterday was day 3 of no alcohol.
    It was also my son's suicide anniversary and the first one I didn't wipe myself out on.
    Just to throw in even more stress I work in a bar some nights as I did last night.
    The temptation just to take one 'staffy drink' at the end of my shift took a lot of effort to refuse.
    My head was fuzzy all night and I didn't really feel with it. I was extremely tired.
    But I kept telling myself 'just one week, just one week and you will feel the benefits'
    I kept telling myself I needed to push through it, more energy will come and the fuzzy, the headaches, the lack of energy, the hangovers will all go.
    I can't believe I did it.
    Today is a new day and I will be going to my youngest sons soccer match 'NOT' hungover for once.
