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.
