Welcome. I’m proud of you for trying to obtain sobriety.
I highly recommend checking in daily to keep focus in the checking daily to maintain focus thread.

I also recommend finding some activities to fill time like, running, cycling, working out, meditation/mindfulness, crafts, drawing, reading etc.
i also recommend reading on this forum a lot on this forum and asking questions if you have any.
Good luck, you’ve got this.

I think, honestly, if I can go 30, I can keep going… It’s just getting past those triggers

Congrats on your first sober day and a step towards a new healthier you!!! I hope that you see many more sober days to come!

You can do it. Do you have a good support system? I got a sponsor in AA and that was a game changer for me. I always balked at doing some of these steps and drank at every trigger. Always sounded like work. Its not, being drunk was so much more work.

I keep it light. I try to avoid heavy conversations with people thag arent sober. If someone asks me if i want a drink i just say. “Good for now” “long day” “im taking a break” etc.

I have been very happy to feel much of my anxiety melt. You totally got this. Message me anytime. Goes for everyone. First week was tough for me, but i was at work at had no access. Maybe consider bunkering up with soneone for a week or so. It got a lot “easier” as i went along.

I can only speak on 30 days however.

Good for you Jucha! Stick with it. It takes work but it is worth it. Lots to learn here, read around and get to know the people - we’re an interesting bunch but one thing we all have in common is wanting that sober life - it is beautiful :sunglasses:

Remember: you’re a good person, you matter, and your story matters. You deserve a safe, sober life where you can be your full self. You will get it if you work it, and never give up. Ever! You can do it sister :innocent:

I do, for the most part… I do live with someone that drinks heavily but I’m tired of it, I don’t like the person I am when I drink
