It’s just me

My sober tracking app says I am 75.34 days sober. I am 60 years old and I started drinking at the age of 14. At the age of 46 I went to my first meeting for alcoholics and walked out vowing never to drink again. I swore up and down to my husband and kids I’d stay sober. And for 14 yrs I white knuckled my way through.

Then my husband died suddenly, and my kids started moving out and off to college. So I felt my promise didn’t need to be held any longer. All it took was 2 weeks of drinking before I slammed down into the rocky bottom. 75 days ago I tried to kill myself and others. By the grace of my Higher Power, I was given another chance. I am doing everything possible to not squander this opportunity.


Welcome Maureen,
Congrats on your 75 days sober.
I’m 61. I started my sober journey 01/02/2020 20 days before my 60th birthday. Because of all the support from this community I am happy to say I got 621? days sober and I’m never looking back. I hope to see you around. This is a great place for support. My best tool is Gratitude. I never miss a day. Check us out over in the Daily gratitude thread if you’re willing.
