I just finished my eleventh month of withdrawal two weeks ago, and it feels great! May was a really busy month for me, so that’s why this post is a bit late. I’m trying to make up for all the time that I’ve lost to this thing, so I’ve been going out a lot and just living, really.
I went to Paris and London, I drank on a (sometimes) nightly basis (My parents were gone for two whole weeks. What can I say?!). I even met a fellow TSW warrior! It was amazing, ranting to an actual person who knows exactly what I’m talking about. I highly recommend it, if you get the chance!
My skin has definitely improved in the past month. The acne has calmed down a lot, which is awesome because it was getting pretty out of control. Also, my legs are way better. I can FINALLY shave them haha! I’m sure most ladies going through this know what I’m talking about. The thought of a razor against my skin a month ago? Yikes! It wasn’t happening. But they’re not sensitive anymore, so yay! They’re still discoloured, and they’re still dry, but the itch is pretty much gone!
As a matter of fact, the itch in general is gone. My neck still itches a bit when I sweat, but it’s really not that bad. Although, it did start itching when I was out dancing one night, so I just had to go with it haha! It’s a new move that I like to call the N-itch (the Neck Itch–guaranteed to put all eyes on you!).
Other than that, I’ve been sitting out in the sun, but not consistently because the weather is all over the place! Last week, it was really sunny, hot, and humid. This week, it’s rainy, and the temperature plummeted to 15 degrees. Not exactly tanning weather, but I’ll take what I can get.
Hoping it’s sunny on your end,
