On my second day sober


#1

I have reached my second day sober thank god I hope I can carry it going


#2

Out of likes. You’ve got this!


#3

I liked it for you.

@Kells87 have you considered trying something other than white knuckling it to get sober? It’s very hard for people to do alone


#4

Still out of likes. Yeah, the holding on for dear life is not a success plan.


#5

I tried to white knuckle and it ended badly. I was closer to suicide than I was to recovery. The first two years of recovery for me was just one terrible idea after another.


#6

Yeah, been there. Not with the suicide. But, depressed for sure. Felt like I’d always have this addiction and that it was going to be something I’d die with.


#7

@Kells87 Courage!!! And congratulations. Here 12 days sober. Remember 24 hours sober is what we need. No matter what I will not pick or use


#8

On my 3rd day. Actually so grateful not to have woken up sick for the first time in a long time. Still feel tired and anxiety is higher but could be worse. Keep at it


#9

All you need to so is stay sober today. An urge hits, walk, read, get on here, chat with us. Tell that little voice telling you 1 will be ok, to go to hell. You got this! Just add 1 more day!
