Struggling… I hate Friday evenings

Posted on

I have felt much better, stronger, more good looking lately but the Friday evening witching hour is seriously fucking with me right now. I am holding on to my tools (blogging, knitting, seltzer, chocolate, podcasts) but this really fucking sucks. I feel like I have exhausted my friend talking privileges. When does this get better? Can someone just put me in a coma until it does? FUCK!

    It does suck sometimes, doesn’t it?? But depending on where you are, you can go to sleep shortly, it will be Saturday morning, and you will feel amazing! I turned down dinner out with friends tonight and am home just hiding out – after a hellish work week, I knew the temptation would be too strong if I was out to dinner…Hang in there! You’re doing this!

    Not sure this will help but just to let you know I had 124 days sober as of this past Sunday but Monday I gave in and drank and got drunk. I have regretted it significantly, I am at day 4 now. This too shall pass, I wish I hadn’t drank. I did though and I am back at it but I would much much prefer being in day 128 now instead of 4. Hold on. 🙂

    I agree, there are certain times when it’s just plain harder. Hang in there! Maybe if Friday is tricky you can schedule going to a movie or something you really like for the next one. I don’t know. Sometimes it’s just getting through. But it’s Day 21 for me, and I’m with you on feeling better most of the time, and on it all being worth it. Take care and stay strong.

    Oh man, I hated Fridays! That damn day gave me some trouble! I haven’t read enough of your blog, so i am not sure you if you are open to it but in early sobriety i just sat in AA meetings every friday and saturday and well any day that ended with day, it seemed like the only place safe for me. Other than that keep busy and hang in! Oh and hard candy or mints helped me with cravings. You can do this! Thanks for stopping by my blog, so nice to meet you! Whoot woot, sobriety rocks! – Maggie

    You know, Friday night was my absolute worst time of the week too. Only last night it struck me that those really twitchy 5pm Friday feelings HADN’T happened and I felt good. I had made an excuse not to do something I didn’t feel I could cope with sober (birthday karaoke with a heavy drinking group – just, no) and I enjoyed a movie, a home cooked curry and some Ben & Jerry’s then had a bubble bath and went to bed and felt great. But this is at 12 weeks. What I’m saying is: Give it time. It gets easier and better. Trust me. You’re doing great.

    Hey Maya, 7:55 pm, in my pj’s. Teeth flossed and brushed, contacts out, glasses on. TV show almost finished and then I’ll read for a bit. Tuck yourself in bed, friend. Try to get some rest and we’ll all be here tomorrow.

    Thanks for all of your support. You guys ROCK! I made it! Much chocolate was consumed and I knitted the ends of my stupid blanket together but I made it. To quote TOSLYF(and Belle), Fuck you, Wolfie! It is a beautiful, hangover free day.

    So glad to see you made it!
    The Bubble Hour podcasts were named for one of the hosts nightly plan to keep from drinking, which was creating a bubble for herself….she filled it with her ipad/movies.peanut butter cups/ice cream/a good book….whatever. And she would close herself in every night. I love this idea. When I first heard her talking about it I was past the time of needing it, but I know many people who made themselves a little bubble and tucked in as soon as they could each evening. It’s a great idea!
