The Poison is Gone

I have been a full 7 days without a drink now. I have been eating better and stuck with my new exercise program. Physically, I feel pretty good. But mentally, I feel tired. I was a bit manic yesterday and I couldn’t focus. I would find myself thinking about my father a lot as my mind wandered away from the task at hand. It could have been too much caffeine but I didn’t have any past noon and I don’t feel like I had restful sleep. I had stressful work dreams. And, on several occasions I roused because I was pouring sweat. When my alarm went off I honestly felt hungover. I made it through a trip to happy hour, the weekend, and yesterday without questioning my resolve. Today might be harder. I will not drink today.
