Welcome Steve and congrats on making the decision to get sober. That’s a huge step and I’m really proud of you. I found taking walks helped me. Just getting outside in nature and enjoying the fresh air helps. I spent a lot of time reading others stories on here too. The meme thread takes my mind of everything and makes me laugh.

Welcome Steve. This really is a huge step to come here and ask for help. Reading other people’s stories, experiences and advices helped and help me still a lot. To know we are not alone. Maybe spoil yourself with some nice movies, some good food and some relaxing time on the sofa or getting out for a walk like Lisa suggested. A lot of chocolate and sweets helped me too in the beginning…

Thank you all for the welcome. It’s been a little nerve wracking, but I have assembled a pretty solid team outside of the forum. I start meetings tomorrow and I’m going to do my best. It was recommended to me that I try to do 90 in 90 and really work the program this time around.
