…. 9 months

I love this analogy! Wish I could take credit for it but I cannot –

When we stop drinking it’s like we are pregnant and we are giving birth to a new life!  Our new life.  I am going to hold fast to this image in the days, weeks and months ahead.  I’m going to add to it the idea of self-care that I read somewhere else.  Just as I’d nurture myself were I pregnant with a “baby” I’m going to do that now.  What a powerful seed to have planted in my brain, and heart!  I’m on Day 14AF.  Only 2 weeks along, not showing, no outer glow, strangely tired, feeling off.  But, I can feel stirrings, glimpses of clarity, moments of lightness that I have not felt in a very long time.

What did you experience in the first days and weeks of no longer drinking?
