Day 5 – feeling good

This will be short as I’m feeling comfortable and mellow but not really in a writing mood. I’m feeling good on day 5. The sensation of relief is still there and I feel subtly different in some way that I don’t fully understand – it’s a very good thing though.

I haven’t been up very long and it’s early evening. I’ve had a few nights of long shifts and too little sleep. I’ll probably fall asleep on the sofa soon, the circadian pull toward some darkness-hours sleep is strong. I’m very happy that I’ll be doing this sober.

I can still feel the effects of the amazing support I’ve received over the last few days. Although I don’t see or touch or know anybody that I interact with here I’ve sort of sensed your invisible presence in my quieter moments – a presence that understands, and ‘has my back’. Thank you again.

A high five to those in a good place and an outstretched hand to anybody struggling – have a good sober day folks x

    You’re right…we’re out here thinking of you. Sleep well – a sound, sober sleep 🙂

    Dear TOTW,
    I thank you for your support.
    The pull of addiction is so strong.
    It took me several years of trying to really get that.
    But life is really better now.
    I am so glad you are on your way!
    Happy Day 5…or 7 by now!
