You can do this ! Let go or get dragged! I’m on day 9…
6 days, 14 hrs for me!
Waking up this morning I have 298 daily reprieves clean and sober. We do this thing called sobriety one day at a time. If you have one day clean and sober you can consider yourself a success. Once I came to the realization that I have no control over alcohol or drugs and then turning my life and my will over to the care of a higher power of my understanding life became a lot more bearable manageable. Thank God for the rooms of AA and for the ones that came before me. But for the grace of God go I. Stay safe today and above all be kind to yourself.
Today is day 11 feeling great but also feel like I need a sober vacation. just a day or two away maybe at the coast or something. Eat good food. Feel some waves. Put in a decent hike. I feel like these things need to be experienced sober and not hungover.
Holly, congratulations on 6 days. You become well mentally and physically one day at a time. Sometimes one hour at a time.
Holly, congratulations on 7 days sober. We get a daily reprieve from our alcoholism one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. Even at times one breath at a time. But for the grace of God go I. Be safe my friend and above all be kind to yourself.
Today is my 6th day and this forum has been great thanks to everyone that shares their story thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Happy to report 3 and a half days of sobriety. These past days have been filled with extreme irritability, frustration and depression, but I have finally landed in a happy head space today. Grateful.
198 days free from alcohol! The best decision I have ever made.
111 days sober from alcohol currently. Very happy. Didn’t think I would be but I’m extremely blessed☺️
Today is 13 days. Longest ever is 15 days, about 13 years ago… I am comfortable.
1.78 years sober and 6.55 years clean! Still counting!
Day 6. Feels so much longer than that
15 days today. I’m still thinking about alcohol on a whim, then I remind myself of some horrible behavior I had in the past drunk. Let go or get dragged… So I’m letting go. Quick note: today I was walking my puppy at the beach and he lunged at some birds, I slipped on mud, and crashed into a palm tree hurting my wrist, hip, knee and ankle. The crazy thing that I love about getting hurt is that I actually REMEMBER THE ACCIDENT! Not like when I would wake up with bruises and scrapes with no idea how they happened cuz I was black-out drunk.
About to have a year on the 30th
@Longhorn - woot woot! That’s awesome. What is the best and worst thing about being sober for the last year?
The worst would be having to go through detox that was fucking hell! The best is how close I’ve gotten to my higher power and mom we are inseparable!
305 daily reprieves here. But for the grace of God go I…
21 days sober from alcohol and blessed, Thank You Jesus, Thanks be to God
