just have to tell you all

I know this is me blowing my own trumpet- but I am excited! You guys have probably noticed my babbling today on the board, and I do apologise, especially as the posts are really long. There is a reason, and it's not coz i'm hypo or anything.
It's been two weeks and two days since I have had anything alcoholic to drink, or anything dopey to smoke!!!! I can't believe how much clearer my mind is, i do still get blanks and my typing seems to have gone to the dogs- but reckon that's the medication, which I have not missed, and I have been conscientious of sticking to a routine. I have also been taking it easy with myself, and being nice to myself. I have two weeks before I have to go back to work, and want to get myself into a good headspace before I do, coz that's gunna be a whole new ball game- I will need everything I have I think.

But I am especially proud of myself for not drinking or smoking today- it's my birthday and I didn't even have one to celebrate!!! Yay me!

Awesome for you! I too am in the process of stopping drinking. No good every comes out of it. I commend you and should toot your own horn. That's a major accomplishment. It's one of the hardest things to stop. Congratuations to you and happy birthday!
