I wanted to post something positive. I felt overwhelmed, judged and found wanting, like a failure, and like I would never improve. It really made it harder not to drink and to believe in myself. Today I did a body scan (closing your eyes and taking a moment to check over how your body feels and where). It allowed me to realize some of these overwhelmed feelings were not because I am a failure/need to try harder/and am weak. It was because of allergies. I decided to try to scan for how I felt and where more regularly so I don’t allow a physical ailment to become a life setback. Can anyone else relate to being physically sick and feeling like it was an emotional/psych emergency? How do you deal/prevent that from spiraling?

@Well-thathappened i do that when I can't sleep. Start at the top of my head and end at my toes (if I make it that far). I also envision my stress trickling out of my fingers and toes.

Hope you were able to stay strong and sober. Tough when you are surrounded by alcohol. Been sober tor 4 months. Have not gone out to dinner where alcohol is served. Limits where we can go.
