Hello world. l drank about 2 weeks back for the first time in over 14 months. lt only took about a week for my drinking to catapult back to where l left off. Everything l was doing was revolving around alcohol. My four day bender came to an end today. l’m feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and lonely. Some of this is related to my OCD and other things going on in my life at the moment. Those things l hoped to escape by drinking, of course, did not go away. l guess l’ll keep searching for a way out. The stress is inordinate. So here l am in day one of sobriety again. l told one of my loved ones. lt feels better being honest with her. lt also makes my sobriety date feel like something l need to hold onto.
