Got through the day and night no problem. Good nights sleep, as soon as a single bad thought entered my mind I switched gears to get off it. Of course, this happens every time I refocus and work to double down on my commitment to sobriety, so not surprising. If nothing else though, it has gotten much easier to do over time. I can currently go many days, weeks, even a month sober without white knuckling it and fighting and scraping through each day. That's real progress in my view. What I can't do is continue it for a very long extended period to the point where I'm not even that enticed by this junk anymore. To do that would be almost miraculous, but I'm striving for it. Harvester - thanks for your kind words and support. As with anything, having a plan and preparing is always better than "winging it" - I should practice at home what I preach at work in terms of executing a strategy. Sounds like it has worked very well for you!
