Day 1, new in here!

Thank you! Nice to meet you, fellow bipolar. Yeah, those 5 years were the best of my life. I miss the clarity and confidence, but I know I can get back there. These first days are just so damn hard…


I know it is. But at least you got us. You’re not alone.


You did it before, ando You Will do it again, I put my trust on you. Lets fucking GO!
We are here, everyone in the same path, and we all can make it possible.
I love you, congrats for this special and amazing first day sober.


Thank you so much for the encouraging words! I absolutely love this community.

I remember back in the days when I was sober for 5 years, I don’t remember it was this hard in the beginning. I’m 44 now and I relapsed 10 years ago, but now I’m gonna be sober for the rest of my life.

Thanks again!


Day 3, yay! Still feeling like shit, full of shame and guilt, anxiety, panic and depression, but I’m not giving up. I have terrible cravings, so I’m gonna go for a run to gain some clarity and confidence. I hope you all are okay!


I’m really struggling today. I’m feeling so lost and miserable, I don’t know how I can survive from these feelings. The reality seems so unreal and scary and no wonder; I’ve been drinking, smoking weed and popping pills so many years that I don’t know anymore how to face the reality, how to live sober. Sorry for this pity party. I’m scary as f.

Day 4 and it’s not getting better yet. I feel so hopeless, sad and depressed. I join today for my first AA Skype meeting and it felt good. Gonna continue to join them via online.

And oh, I also tried Recovery Dharma but it was too Buddhist for me. But I can certainly understand why it’s so appealing, seemed like a really great group.
