I am hoping today is the day. I managed to stay sober for 3 years before my father passed away last year. I fully relapsed and am now at my worst. It’s 10:20am here where I am at and I’m craving. I’m sick and tired of this challenge.
Hi Alice, welcome to the community, 3 years is an awesome amount of time…so you know you can do this…keep venting here we are all here for you, huge hug from me
I can relate so much my mom passed nearly 6 years ago and I used alcohol and more to take the pain away, the longest I’ve done is nearly 8 weeks I’m back on nearly day 5, it’s hard extremely, I’m just trying to stay focused and motivated stay strong we can do this
Yeah I hear you. My father was a large part of my recovery. 8 weeks is great. You know you can do this. I’ve put my boots on 3 times to go to the corner store but took them back off. Jeezzz it’s tough.
Feeling positive today, sending positive vibes to you too, I know what you mean about the boots and going to the nearest store, I’m kinda isolating myself from things and places until stronger, think I shall probably upset a few people along the way as party’s are booked, but I’m not going, I’m focusing on gym, and decorating my house and sorting my garden, one day at a time too
This is how you do it until you get more comfortable with sobriety. It’s a wonderful journey where we continue to grow and get better at being better ODAAT. glad you are here.
Hi and welcome
Great to have you with us
Welcome to the community! How are you feeling today?
Keep those boots off! Congratulations on your three years sober. You proved you can do it. I’ve not lost a parent; that’s got to be hard.
I think when we are ‘down’ in a hole, there’s only ‘up’ to look at. In this community I’ve seen lots and lots of hands reaching down to help each other out.
I’m so glad you are here.
I made it through yesterday… I seem to have big cravings around 3:00 and 6:00. I’ve moved my yoga session to 3:00 to see if that helps. Tomorrow I am planning on starting to walk for a while. One shitty thing - not sleeping well at all. Have a great sober Friday!
Yeah happy sober Friday, Ive been decorating all day, going to keep going for a bit longer, staying focused
