Tail between my legs

Hello… :slight_smile:

I relapsed HARD. @Sassyrocks @Panthereyes @Englishd @Modestakieran

After 19 months of sobriety, I got arrogant and figured I could moderate and it’s not been good.

Megan, I’m sorry for the message I sent you… I know at the time you were looking out for me.

Hi Josh - welcome back, little brother. I am glad you are alive and free. The only way I know how to assuage the shame and guilt is to get back on a sobriety program, rededicate myself, and work on sobriety first, before anything else.

One great thing about TS is that it keeps me wary, reminds me that if I don’t do something about my alcoholism, it’ll do something about me. Every day.

I am grateful you are with us again.

Welcome back. You aren’t the first person, nor the last. You know what it takes to get back on track, and everyone here will be here if you need us

Welcome back Josh! Sorry to hear about your rough relapse, but glad you are back. :heart: Moderating never worked for me either, so I feel you there. Hope you stick around! Lots of very active new folks on here working hard!

All my best, Sassy

Welcome back. It takes courage to come back, admit fault and dust yourself off so props to you for that. You know what it takes to do this. You’re not the only one to relapse or slip up we’ve all done it. What matters is your here now. Be kind to yourself and learn from your slip up. Use it as fuel to drive you on yoir journey. You CAN do this!

Welcome back. Man, that feeling like you’re doing so good and that you’ve got it under control enough to moderate is a terrible trap. The important thing is that you’re back and you’re ready to go forward again.

Glad you’re back :blush:

Better to be here with your tail between your legs than on a park bench with a needle hanging out of your arm.

We got you :pray::sparkling_heart:

Hey @DresdenLaPage :hugs:

I was wondering where you were and did get a little worried. I fucked up too but look, we’re both here, with some sober time under our belts from last time so we know what need to be done.

I’m taking it from your post that you’ve pulled yourself out from the depths and (although probably feeling like shit…) are ready, set and determined to do this again. We’re here for you, but you know that. :purple_heart:
Welcome back :blush: I’m happy to see you :hugs:

In honour of your triumphant return you will have to prepare and photograph a dish made from ox tail.
Your food always looks so good.
