25 days sober as of today after around 25 years of drinking. At times I drank daily, more recently it’s been less frequent but in greater amounts. I told myself that it was okay because it wasn’t every day anymore but deep down I knew it wasn’t because I’d started blacking out periodically. I also have bipolar 1 and ptsd and have basically ignored the fact that drinking on my many medications is dangerous. I’ve been in therapy on and off for years due to trauma and the loss of my parents and stepmom but I had my first appointment to deal with the alcohol today. I’m lucky to have a loving, supportive boyfriend of 17 years who somehow has stayed with me through my many stumbles in life. I feel like I’m waking up and finally looking at my past behaviors and the lies I told myself with open eyes and it… doesn’t feel very good. I’m very hopeful and determined but also ashamed and embarrassed. Despite that I’m excited to be approaching a month of sobriety and I’m happy to be here.

Hi there I’m Lauren and new here as of yesterday, I’m one day sober from alcohol as I’m a regular alcoholic. I have been struggling on and off trying to quit drinking alone but that has not been working so I found this community/app. Really glad to be here and commit to drop kicking this out of my life

Welcome Lauren! Glad to have you aboard. I hope this place can be as helpful to you as it has been to me. We’re in this together and for me that has been the difference between failure in the past and success now. We’re not alone. Wishing you all success in your sober journey.

Already finding people online that I can be open and honest to about this has already felt like a huge relief. I’m 35 single and no kids, I just have the sweetest pug that I need to be able to care for at my best. I have been drinking since I was a teen and want the rest of my life to be free from this. One day at a time
