It took me as of Sunday Morning to realize, that i have to really own up to this and finally make a change. We cant build a reputation on what we say we are going to do, but actually do. I know this journey is going to be extremely difficult, and also tempting alot at times. But i am 100% focused on my recovery and would love to hear everyone else story!!
3.5 days here from alcohol. We got this!
For sure we got this. Longest i have gone in almost a year without a drink! Almost 3 days strong. #OneDayAtATime
I started Sunday as well! Keep it up
We got this everyone! I am looking so forward to have not only my physical appearance change but my mental and emotional state as well!

Welcome to the Newbie Club!!
Welcome! This is a great first step…we are alk here to help
I reached a similar decision, awakening, moment of clarity, inflection point, or whatever you might want to call it. For me, abstaining afterwards has been frightening in some ways as a new unknown, but easier to stick with than I had feared. I often return my thoughts to my reasons for quitting and who I’ve hurt and influenced badly with my behaviors. Have learned a lot. My general advice, seek help, seek information, stay positive, find alternatives. There is a lot of good information, wisdom, and positivity here. Certain thoughts and approaches suit me better than others. You’ll find the specifics that suit you best. Hang tough.
Thank you everyone for the love and support. Alcoholism is such a hard disease to overcome, but with a good support group we can get through it. Whose in nebraska area??
I am at 2 days, the withdrawals are crucial right now can’t wait to pass this stage
I almost wished the withdrawals lasted forever, they were a superb physical reminder of why I wanted to get sober. I stayed on the relapse after 6-7 days train for what seemed like forever because as soon as I was feeling human the cravings would ramp right back up to a fever pitch
Welcome and congrats on almost 3 days!
Super happy to be here Im also 2 days almost 3 now Im so grateful for this forum.
Welcome @1980. Congrats!
