100 days is fantastic 😊👍🏻 just wanted to say for me the crashing crashing tiredness started to subside at about 4 months in. I had it too throughout the day despite getting 8-9 hrs of sleep as well, I think it was probably part of PAWS. But I guess I had also been missing a decent nights sleep for a long long time while drinking. Hope it's been ok for you today x

Thx. Voldemort. My father also died about a month ago so there's been lots going on! Subbing alcohol for crisps and chocolate - so that's the next challenge!

Lotty, that's a fantastic achievement! I'm sorry about your dad, but I'll bet he was proud of you.

Well done, that's a huge achievement! Big hugs.

Well done for 100 days sober! Flowers.

I’m on day 70 and still need a lot of sleep. Lockdown and working from home has allowed me an afternoon nap, which I’ve been enjoying like a baby.

I think it is fairly normal, along with sugar cravings, while our bodies get used to the new normal.

I'm only on day 26 and really tired. Keep wondering when the boundless energy is going to appear?!
Sleeping so much better though & feeling so much calmer Smile

100 days is fantastic OP. And grief is tiring so get your naps in & be kind to yourself xx
