Trying to stay sober

Today marks 7 days sober. I officially hit rock bottom last Friday night. I decided to take the night off of work and go out with some friends. I ended up blacking out and tried driving home. I got pulled over and got arrested for blowing a .28. I was drinking close to every night for 7 months even sitting at home getting drunk by myself. It came to the point every time I went out with my friends I would ALWAYS black out. The next morning I could not remember anything that had happen and I hated that feeling it made sick to my stomach and give me the worst anxiety. The past 7 days have been a struggle but I’m taking it day by day. I’m also on 1 year probation without being aloud to drink alcohol I am so afraid I am going to mess up. I know I need this. Who I was when I was drinking was not the person I am.
Day by day.

Sometime god works in mysterious ways, getting pulled over and a DUI was saving you. You will feel better, after a few weeks. I am day 55 and still have my moments but I think of the out come that won’t be pretty. Hang in there and feel free to reach out.

Ya, just hang in there, day by day like you said.

Maybe try to find some AA meetings and get a phone list so you can lean on people.
