Days Without The Fix...

Having had quite a lot of drinking outings last week, someone and I had decided to stand by more self-control and abstain from any alcohol until Friday, after 6pm. The decision started on Monday and 2 days down. I'm still standing.

Today is the third day, and I can sense the withdrawal symptoms. Each time I receive an sms, regarding any drinking activity, I start to feel uneasy. Should I or should I not? For quite a few times tonight, I was torn between discipline and desire.

I have managed to contain desire, at severe cost. For one thing, my mouth seems to be constantly parched dry. I am experiencing unusual impatience and frustration at my inability to switch between the 3 chords fluidly. A few times, I almost contemplated breaking the guitar or one of the strings. I am feeling empty inside and yet I'm not even thinking of who to date next.

Two more days.... Oh Lord, give me strength.

Then you should smoke to get rid of the uneasiness. I hear that smoking releases stress. Wonder if it's true.
