Tail between my legs

Glad to see you come back, after a good whack of sobriety I can’t imagine how hard it is to relapse and then own it, I’ve seen a lot of relapses that don’t come back!
Have a read of your 500 days post from Feb 5, you know what you need to do :pray::tulip:

I’m glad you made it through. For people like you and me that’s never a guarantee. I don’t have any big motivational speeches. You know what you need to do.

Thankyou for all your responses :slight_smile: I really do appreciate it - theres a lot here and I appreciate the support.

I sort of know what I need to do, I also sort of…dont. To start with, I need to just get through detox which is not as bad as last time but I’m pretty jumpy and anxious. I’m also awfully paranoid. I havent used any drugs this time round; it’s been alcohol but for me, they’re just as bad as eachother. Once I’ve got the shakes out the way and some rehydration; I’ll make a conscious effort to read and be more active on here, certainly less suggestions and more questions - I am not convinced that I have got this and I’m pretty certain for the next 30 days or so, itll be a case of “One day at a time”.

Thanks again for all the responses :slight_smile:

Don’t drink before bedtime. Make it to the pillow sober. That was my mantra in the beginning.

Glad you are back. Glad all of us are here, it means we are trying.

That sucks, I feel you. But u get right back on that horse. The mental after effects are worse than the throwing up I feel. Be gentle with urself.

Personally I think this is great. Anyone who is totally sure is probably missing something!
