I had decided I could handle drinking again and that went very poorly so I’ve decided to put down the bottle and redownload this app that helped me so much a year ago! Woke up this morning with a scraped up face and jacked up back and NO idea how that happened which was quite the wake up call. I’m so glad to be back in the community and look forward to being sober with all of y’all again!!
Looking forward to being sober with you too!
Welcome back. More than some of us have thought that we could outmaneuver the beast and more than some of us learned that’s not so.
I’m glad you’re here and I hope you’ll stay.
Welcome back! I spent a long time thinking I could moderate…bargaining on how I could drink…just weekends, just vodka, only wine, only 3 drinks a night, etc etc…it always eventually led to the same erratic black out mess that I was…so I hear you.
Good choice you made coming here!
Thanks all!! Yes it has been a tumultuous 6 or so months of me pretending that I had a handle on everything. I and those all around me all knew that was a lie. I’m looking forward to feeling good again physically and mentally.
Home is the place where no matter how long you’ve been gone, someone is always glad to see you when you return.
Welcome back. Still a bunch of drunks and addicts here, doing what we can to get better. Glad you joined us again!
Welcome back! I just came back 2 days ago!! We got this girl!!
Been there, done that.
Eventually we just NEED to admit we are powerless. It seems scary and weak but the truth is that it is the most powering.
Welcome back love! I did the exact same thing but I’m now back and 26 days sober. You CAN do this!!
Yes, one day at a time. Eventually we will have many more days under our belt!
I’m back at it with you! I know moderating my drinking has always just led me back into out of control drinking. So going back to saying no to that first drink!! Nothing but positive things happened for me when I quit alcohol and I’m ready to get back to feeling good again
We sure will!
Welcome back! I think you know what to do
Hope you feel better soon!
Welcome back! It warms my heart when someone comes back, especially when so many others stay out there. Stay strong, and we are all here for you!
Welcome back, hope to see you active and working well on your journey, here to help
Welcome back and thank you for being here. You are the most important person in your life, you do deserve a better life trying a sober way of living. Everyone is important, cheering eachother up , having friends and also a chance to inspire others at this forum and needing it. All do . Take care and be strong
I think most of us have thought we could handle it and yes you are right we end up lieing to ourselves.
You done the hardest part being honest with yourself.
Nice to meet you.
Glad you’re back here with us. You know you can do it for good this time. You did the most important step already … now say no to the only drink that matters, this one first drink. You can do it! One day at a time. Looking forward to read more from you on your journey to sobriety. All the best to you
