    It’s the start of my Day 3 and I feel really good. I had my phantom hangover this morning; my body is used to waking up feeling crappy, so I felt like I had three drinks last night, even though I did not have any drinks. But my mouth wasn’t dry, and while I didn’t get a complete 7 hours of sleep as intended, I still feel rested. Feeling rested is a good thing because I have a job interview this afternoon. I’ve been unemployed after a layoff for four full months, since January 31. This is one of the reasons, among many–believe me–that I decided to start my 30 days of sobriety. And my mind feels sharp and ready to talk to a potential hiring manager, and that’s important. One must feel confident and ready to sound smart in a job interview. Drinking every night is getting me NO-where, and now I feel like I’m going somewhere. I’m developing my plan, doing the 30-Day exercises in full and on time each day, and I’m MOVING forward in sobriety. Onward!

    Thank you, Orlandly36, for your message. I really appreciate it! The interview went fine, but they were looking for someone with some in-depth experience that I didn’t have, so it was o.k. Not a failure at all; I just didn’t have the very precise skills they were looking for.

    I faced some serious temptations late yesterday afternoon, unrelated to the interview, but I made it through the evening without a drink. A success. I also discovered The StopDrinkingExpert youtube videos online, and they are an amazing supplement to the 30-Day Solution. That guy kicked my butt–not really mine–but he put me in my place by merely stating: (summarized and paraphrased) “If you don’t have the 100% certainty to stop drinking, where it becomes part of your core being that you are absolutely a non-drinker and that you refuse to stop poisoning yourself with alcohol, YOU WILL FAIL.” Dang, that hit home BIG time. I watched two of them yesterday, and they’re really great! – FRJ
