Feel better physically today, so it was just a hangover.
Once all the alcohol leaves my system I'll see if there are any lingering nasties.one of the things I worry about is sorting out my sleep pattern. Last night was awful! I know once I do things will be much batter as I'll be getting restful sleep.

Weighed myself today.
Good news - I don't weigh as much as I thought.

Like the inverse of taking drugs ... You feel better when you are on them and then think "Oh heck I'm fine I don't need them anymore. You stop taking them and start feeling poorly physically, but more so mentally.
Same thing with drinking or taking "illegal" drugs (any addiction really). One stops for awhile and starts to feel better and thinks just one or just on special occasions or or or ... YMMV
rinse recycle repeat... till one decides No mas.

Personally, its been about 10 years since I've done coke or weed. I STILL think at times that I'd like to do it again - just a little or whatever... Just catch a buzz and chill for a lil while.
Then I breath deep and keep moving on. Distract myself and think about my kids, family, friends ...

I feel the same way about a ciggie, classic. I haven't smoked since last July, but I still feel the urge. It's almost a casual feeling. I just had a tasty meal, now a good smoke would really cap it off.

Oh yeah, right. That was Brian. Pam doesn't smoke because she wants to LIVE! And mixing nicotine and estrogen is a recipe for a stroke or PE. And I surely don't want THAT!

Then the urge passes.

I'm with ya, Sundae. Go for sobriety.

I've heard that the usual craving for illicit substances or even litcit ones (cigs, booze) lasts about seven minutes.


It can feel very urgent, very RIGHT NOW! - but it will pass. I have been known to give in, though, in those awful seven minutes. It only takes that long for me to get to the liquor store.

But I'm on the water wagon. I feel much better when I am.

I"m really not afraid of drinking and dying - I'm afraid of drinking and NOT dying.

Something for Sundae from James McMurtry:

My thoughts were gnawing at me
So I tried hard not to think
I took a pint of whiskey
And poured it down the sink
I'd get my act together
I swore it to myself
I looked up at your picture
And I knocked it off the shelf

(chorus)
Every little bit counts
Every little bit counts

Too little too late, sorry
Too little too late for me
I tried and I tried and I tried
to be so good
Wanted to be good so bad
I tried and I tried and I tried
every trick I could
'til I'd emptied out the
whole damn bag

I'm no longer choking on
the hair of the dog
It's been a couple of weeks now
since I came out of the fog
The highs are slightly higher
And the lows are just as low
A mild improvement on the
average even so
Every little bit counts

Every little bit counts
Though it may not count for much
They could be long forgotten
By the time you add'em up

Thanks Griff.

I really identified with that tune when I was first breaking up with alcohol. Oddly, I couldn't find it on youtube. McMurtry really delivers it.

To and including: Thursday, 29 March 2012

It is 1021 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

Or 2 years, 9 months, 17 days including the end date

Alternative time units
1021 days can be converted to one of these units:
■88,214,400 seconds
■1,470,240 minutes
■24,504 hours
■145 weeks (rounded down)

Thanks for the 'bump' Zen. It's a while since I last looked at timeanddate.com, if you'd posted three weeks ago I could have celebrated a 1000 day anniversary!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Rhianne, go binary!

2 to the 10th is 1024, so in another three days, you get a big milestone!
