Feeling guilty for letting myself down after doing so well… I think aa meetings are going to be my next route, I don’t think I can handle this on my own.
You don’t have to handle this, or anything for that matter, alone anymore. Check out a meeting and ask for help. They’ve been where you are and want to help. Glad you’re here.
11 days is such an achievement, sorry you had a blip but keep going just image how good you are going to feel going beyond 11days next time.
AA has been great for me so far - sobriety can feel like a lonely place, but it doesn’t have to. Finding a network of other sober people has been invaluable to me. Good luck
You may have let yourself down this time, but you are still trying! You don’t lose until you give up. You haven’t given up!
Good for you for considering a different route this time on this new attempt. You realized that your previous approach was not effective, so now you’re changing things and having another shot at it – that’s progress, in my eyes.
Part of obtaining lasting sobriety is finding out what works for you – that’s what you’re doing right now.
Keep at it!
Hey, you’ve got a plan in place and an idea of next steps. That’s about achievement in itself. Youre not giving up
I think this sobriety thing is much easier with a solid support system in place. Groups, therapy, friends and loved ones, whatever it is, it helps to have someone to turn to when a craving pops up.
All the best moving forward x
That’s a good plan. That’s my plan for if I ever drink even one drink. I don’t want to go to meetings, so that’s just a bit more motivation to stay sober. Day 340 since the last drink I will ever take.
Hey Hazydayz, just checking in. How’s it going? Is this day 5 since the relapse? Are you feeling any better?
Thank you everyone for all your comments… I’m on day 8 again now and feeling strong. ️
