Just posting because I said I would.

Hubby drank wine off and on today and then at 4:30 I was needing to do something else so I hit the grocery store.  I didn't really have a craving per se, just was worried it might come to that if I didn't get out of dodge for a bit.

Came home armed with alcohol free stuff and sweets in addition to lots of stuff for upcoming meals.  At least I feel accomplished in regard to the shopping.  Never did get my butt exercising today although between mid day shopping with my son and the miles walked in the grocery store, maybe I still burned some calories.  Tomorrow we are hiking so hopefully will make up for lost exercise!

Had cocktail hour with my AF wine, no cravings.  I was pooped.

Dinner and then dealing with issues regarding friend with cancer.  But glad to know if needed tonight then I am not worried about driving.

Headed off to get more tea and then bed.

Day 3 done.



  1. Great coping mechanism. Learning to change the dynamic and go do something active (anything) instead of staying home in that situation is so wise. It just let's you reset and then stay committed to AF. Well done you!

    1. It was good. I need to keep that in mind and distract myself from cravings mote often than just always trying to muscle through.

  2. That was a great idea!
    And it feels good to accomplish something.
    I make the bed and keep the house neat now!

    1. It really does feel good, each and every little accomplishment.

  3. Strong work! "Out of the house" is one of my useful coping mechanisms too. Good on you for stocking up on food too.

    Don't worry too much about exercise yet either - if it happens great but I found out the hard way more than once that piling on the "shoulds" is dangerous to early sobriety. Keep being gentle with is working. :)

    1. I know. I just am so bummed about my weight. At Xmas I was feeling fat and now I'm 10 lbs heavier. I could cry. But I'll march onward...
