Hey Chris! Welcome. You just stumbled into a group of folks with an amazing collective wisdom and a whole ton of support. I’m also an alcoholic, relatively new in recovery. I have learned so much here - and checking in here sober feels damn good. Go back and read older threads. There is a ton of info to help you get through those first hellacious days and then to help you figure out how to decide to be sober each day. I’m really glad you are here. Hang around!

Welcome!! I’m back on talking sober after a 5 month relapse, I disappeared during those months because I thought I had changed, I thought I was cured and better. I also felt like I let everyone here down and I was disappointed in myself… Made it 4 months sober before that and literally could not have done it without everyone here on talking sober. But I’m back with 13 (going on 14) days and have never felt better!

You’ll find nothing but support here :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Im glad to be here. I intend to beat this thing this time around so im here to stay.
Day 2 is in the books. I havn’t lasted longer than a week sober in 15 years. To get a couple of weeks under my belt would be a huge milestone.
For now I will just focus on day 3. One day at a time right?

Welcome! I’m Jen, alcoholic. 5 months sober today. Besides 2 pregnancies it’s the longest I’ve been sober since I was 16 (I’m 44!). Keep coming back here, lots of good info and support.

Hey! I’m an alcoholic too! Welcome Chris…I’m coming up on six months sober, and being on this app (sometimes aaalllll day long in the beginning) was an immeasurable help in keeping me sober. A week seemed impossible to me when I began, but it gets better. Everyone on here is amazing. Truly. Remember that there is a search option sold you’re ever tempted and want to read threads on things such as “what do you do with your time sober?” “What do you drink instead?!” Etc
It also helps me to reach out to new people and to read peoples milestone posts, they’re so inspiring. Whatever it takes to stay sober one day at a time right?
Glad your here😊
