Day 2

Well, I'm hanging in there, but finding that I'm getting quite hungry during the day. Needs some fine tweaking of what I can have, as apparently between the shakes for breakfast and lunch, and between lunch and dinner, I can have things like an apple or an almond.

Tried that today, still very hungry. The other thing my trainer suggested was half a chicken sandwich for morning and afternoon tea, will give that a go.

No alcohol is the main thing I'm having trouble with though, when it becomes such a habit, to go cold turkey is interesting to say the least. I'm irritable, and restless (a complete joy to be around ... hehe). And waking up in the middle of the night covered in sweat aint no joy either. But you know what? That just tells me this is something I really need to do.

I will try to put in some other posts apart from the joys of detox, just finding it hard to think of much else at the moment.

Just take it one day at a time. And if you stuff up one day? Don't beat yourself up and give up, just start afresh the next day. I know exactly how you're feeling except my thing was giving up 10-12 coffees a day cold turkey - OMG the headaches. Like you said though, it just shows that we're doing/did the right thing.
Hang in there :)

"an apple or an almond"? Doesn't sound like much - I'd have the apple though.
And I agree - hang in there!
