Today is again day 1. No self pity. No self hate. I choose to leave it behind. Here I am starting again. I can do it. I will do it. You good people knowing that you are there helps me a lot. I will do this. It is enough. I have the courage. Thats the most important part I think.
Try a meeting they might help .ok having courage maybe use it to try a different way to stay sober wish you well
Having the courage to admit a relapse and try again is huge. Doesn’t take much courage to feel sorry for yourself and give up on what you want. Welcome back
What a difference in your initial report of the slip and this one! You have the right attitude to succeed, keep it up! And like @Ray_M_C_Laren , I always recommend a meeting as a helpful tool.
Glad to hear you’re giving this another go.
Add willingness to your courage and you’ll have a recipe for long term sobriety. Willingness involves being open to new ideas, being willing to try new things and being willing to seek help from others.
I am glad to hear you are getting back up again What extra tools are you going to use this time?
Ray I need a meeting. Can you hook me up?
Also on day 1 here. Not feeling as optimistic as your post sounds. Be strong.
I will continue my therapy. I also use antidepressants. I will go to meetings. The most important thing is I will try to not hate myself.
I still have the hangover but I try to be strong. If I give myself to fear I can lose my mind.
Did you drink a lot?
Courage is good, mix it up with some willingness, acceptance and honesty… Place at room temperature. Meanwhile flatten out your ego whilst carefully looking for any hints of selfishness. Now cut down to size.
We are all made from the same ingredients, methods may vary but mixed in the right quantities the results are usually the same.
Not sure about your area for live meetings…i just downloaded “everything aa” and havent gotten around to using it yet but scrolling through found that they have online meetings available 24 hours a day. Hope tgis helps
Yes like always for hours and hours until I blackout. Of course not proud of it.
Me too. We are abusing ourselves bad.
Hope you’re okay right now. I’m in bed still. 1pm.
I feel fine. I think I will sleep. Good sober dreams everyone. Love you all.
Plenty of Zoom meetings on line or contact your local AA office and they will give you info of any local FTF meetings wish you well
I hated myself for so long. Commuting to sobriety and have a solid program of recovery helped me unlearn a lot of destructive thoughts and patterns that kept me from any bit of self-love. Recovery is a beautiful journey. The Promises really do unfold with sober time and a commitment to recovery and emotional sobriety. So glad you are here.
I found a meeting at the mental hospital where my doctor is. But I am not ready
Believe in yourself. This community believes in you!!
Be strong amd dont look back. Forward only, one day…one hour…one second at a time.
20 seconds on insane courage is all it takes to make the choice and attemd that meeting!! YOU got this!!!
