Day Counters


Day 625

The day counter became my nemesis in early recovery.

I’ve reset that sucker too many times to count. I’ve tried abstaining without keeping track of days, because for awhile, I was too obsessed with the counter.

During the first year, I played around with not using it at all. Eventually, I found it more helpful than irritating and have used it ever since, even when I had to reset it, over and over again.

These days I get excited when I see the stats.

What I notice even more than the $5,000 is the 800+ hours of productivity. That’s 20 full 40-hour work weeks. Woah

Some people of experience FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) sometimes.

Lately FIMO (Fear I Missed Out) is on my mind. I have some catching up to do, but I’m so grateful that I’m back in the game

Happy Friday everyone
