Diary keeping and address unknown emotions

As part of my recovery, I need to keep a dairy for my councillor regarding my drinking pattern, situation I'm in and how I am feeling.  I don't have an individual emotion to pin point and to document I just know it's the same ritual every day of drinking and the same feelings and I am struggling

Your counselor will appreciate you journaling your thoughts. Freeform is fine.It really helps to get out what's in your head on paper in order to decrease all the "noise"in there.I did it early in recovery and when my parents got ill and passed later on in my recovery I returned to it as a grieving ritual.You are mourning the loss of an old lifestyle and attempting to begin a new one!
