My Not So Secret Diary

Day 3

Day 3So as a little update for you, it has been three whole days since I decided to try to give up my other habits, and in those three days, I have not had one single sip of coke, I haven’t nibbled any dark chocolate and I haven’t dunked any biscuits. I have instead been snacking on grapes and sipping mint tea.I’m not going to lie and say I’ve found it incredibly easy and in fact I have had a couple of grumpy moments. While they remind me of my early sobriety days, they aren’t anywhere near as hard as those days were. In fact, they serve to remind me how far I’ve come. I’m pretty proud of myself because I know that my addictive nature enables me to cling on to things and I do find change hard. On the positive side, living without these little treats is making me feel quite strong. It’s funny how such a small thing can be so empowering! My only complaint is that I’m not skinny yet. Maybe it’ll take a few more days...? I hope you’re all okay?
