I did a quick search and couldn’t find an existing thread to post in so I’m making my own.
This morning 3 years ago I woke up and decided that I had enough and wasn’t going to drink again.
I had strung 54 days sober in July/August? But threw it away and dug an even deeper hole than I ever imagined I could. Went from daily blackouts after work, to drinking vodka for breakfast and the rest of the day on the weekends, beers on the way to work and lunch, drinking in the car on the way home so that when I got home I was already ahead of the game and it didn’t look like I drank as much.
I don’t know how I was able to keep my job and not get a dui but luck was on my side. Luck runs out eventually and I wasn’t trying to find out when.
I found this app after a week sober the first run and stayed with on it every single day. Even when I relapsed. Didn’t post then but always read. I still read ever single day. I obviously don’t post much, but read everything.
It’s not always easy but it’s definitely worth it. There’s not a bad day that drinking won’t make worse and there’s definitely a good day drinking can ruin, so I’ll just focus on today and get through it sober.
Happy New Year everyone!
