I was m.i.a but now I'm back!

Hi friends!
It’s been awhile since I’ve logged on. I’m still alcohol free! Working up to the 3 month mark. First month went by so quick it was so easy. But, just as I though month 2 is just dragging.
I did partake in Marijuana editables but I decided that it’s not helping with the alcohol. I’ve been craving a bit.
Spooky season is coming and my favorite was Halloween fun at wineries. Not anymore.
Now time to come up with new things.
I’m still not working cause of covid. I’m supposed to start working Oct 1st. Not sure if that is going to happen yet.

I’m honestly ok with being sober during this pandemic. I’m worried more about when things start to go back to “normal” and my old stresses come back and being around people again.
That scares me.
I know I’m not the only one with this fear.


Welcome back. Good to hear you got 3 months. Personally I wouldn’t be doing any edibles or anything else for a mood altering. I know what you mean about Covid. I pick this shitty year to be sober. Of all the rotten years. And frankly I think that is making it easier for me too. I would be just a complete waste if I was still drinking. I’m retired so day drinking wouldn’t be an issue. Anyway. I do wonder what it will be like in the new normal. But I don’t want to drink now. And I’m not going to drink tomorrow. And I try not to worry or fantasize about the future.
Good luck.
Stick around. The place has helped me a ton.


Worrying about the future is not going to help you
I tend to do that too, but it’s not helping me at all. So I focus on today and try to make that day as nice (and sober) as possible.


Yes thank you. I put away the edibles and im already feeling better. My boyfriend and I took a few days this week to be out in nature and that helps alot.
I’m glad he took a few days off of work and spent it with me.

I’ve been mia too. But it has because I slipped a lot. My fault. I thought I was ok. But I discovered I had hidden triggers.
On the plus side, another lesson learned. I wish everyone struggling the best tonight.


Nice to see you back here with us again. Well done for getting back to it my friend! :pray:t2::two_hearts:

I’m almost one month in so I know exactly what you are going through. I once stopped alcohol for 5 years but it was due to church. Stay strong.
