We made it

We made it one full day. It is an empowering thing. We can do it. On the other hand…. it was a tough day. There were times I would have happily thrown in the towel if I felt I could. But this isn’t that MMA stuff that Dave loves. This is a battle for our lives.

I have read that physical withdrawal symptoms peak around 48 hours which tells me that day 2 might suck even more. I can handle that. I learned more than ever what really triggers my cravings and I learned how to handle them. I most importantly found the help of some old friends and some new friends who have recently walked this path and found enough strength to make it.

It is ridiculous that a little filled cylinder can bring us to our knees but it does. I keep telling myself that I will not lose to it.
