17 days sober

I’m feeling so tired - I’m not sure if this is linked to stopping daily drinking. Have other experienced this?

Alcohol is quick energy and numbs you of the tired feeling. Yes, fatigue can be a temporary effect of stopping drinking. Depending on how much you drank, the alcohol also can deplete essential nutrients. Try to eat healthier and possibly supplement with vitamins. It would be a good idea to get a physical and labs to determine if the alcohol has damaged anything and the labs can also tell you what nutrients you may be lacking. Some people can experience depression after stopping drinking. Exercise in moderation can help with that unless the depression becomes serious. You just lost what alcohol tried to convince you of……..that it’s your best friend. Congratulations, CN400. Sobriety is a journey, but so well worth it. 🍀

I had exactly the same. It did ease off though. I’m32 days in! Hang in there. If you need sleep just try to get as much of it as you can. Your body is recovering x
