Day 5 Still Sober

So today is my 5th day of being abstinent from alcohol and drugs. I’ve been working on my 4th Step inventory with a sponsor and really hope to surpass my record of 97 days sober. I got up this morning and read the Daily Reflection and listened to music. I made some green tea and thought of all I’m grateful for. I’m really grateful to see another day sober. I’ve been thinking of some hobbies to take up. I hope you all have a wonderful day.


Congratulations on 5 days :sunflower:

Welcome to the community Matt. Way to go with your solid start on your sobriety journey.

I did find that hobbies and finding other ways to keep myself busy was very effective in dealing with my urges. This is a wonderful community to be a part of - a lot of great advice, support and distractions here.

Welcome to the family - hope to see you around.

Congrats on 5 days! Sounds like yours is better than mine was I was sick with COVID and curled up in bed. It was fortunate for me I felt like crap regardless and couldn’t tell the difference between sickness and withdrawal :joy:
