I think pure willpower won’t carry me through my sobriety. It will help me to get through some very difficult situations. Willpower is like a muscle. It might get stronger but cannot hold all the time. It’s getting tired and needs to rest while I am concentrating on other things in my life.
I’m on day 5 and feeling much better.
6 and a half months tomorrow!
Day 0 again
1.5 days slowly but surely
74 days sober!
August 23rd of this year was the last time I drank alcohol, and I’ve never been near the stuff since. 46 days clean & counting. One day at a time.
One million likes for this one. Keep it it. I appreciate your sobriety and your wisdom.

78 days sober today. No desire to drink but the mental struggles with my with are killin me how long does she want to punish me for getting to the point of alcoholism?
Theres a saying that goes something like this:
If you walk 100 miles in to a forest, it takes 100 miles to walk out.
Congrats on 78 days of sobriety! I remember thinking the exact thing around that time. It took some introspection to realize that, while having that much sober time is great, it doesn’t make up for the years of lies, the disappointments, the nights where I never came home, the DUIs, the weekends spent hangover and the cancelled plans, etc.
Be patient with her, be patient with yourself. It takes time to leave that forest.
I’m 57 days sober
8 Days alcohol free
2 1/2 days sober after resetting my clock
I made it to 10 days yesterday and I’m so gdamn proud of myself! I do not need to abuse substances to survive and thrive🎉
You should be proud! The earliest days were the hardest for me. Keep up the hard work
