Today is my first day here and my 1st day sober. I am really trying to stay busy. I went 5 months without a drink and then the holidays hit… I am really hoping to make a few friends here to talk to about all this. TY
Welcome and sobriety is cool
Hey Andrea! It inspires me to see you reaching out! Way to come back! Hope to see you at our online meetings!
Not much activity on here
Hey Andrea! How are things going? I remember my first few days like it was yesterday and believe me it’s been a while (over 4 years). I remember the sweats, the anxiety, the not being able to stop moving, never got sleep, I could barely talk, I couldn’t focus on anything at work. Without that experience I don’t think I would be where I am today. I am so happy you wrote on here because I was struggling today with something and being able to see that I could maybe share my experience, strength and hope with someone else that …MAYBE it will get me out of my own head! I remember in the beginning going to a ton of meetings, doing the meeting before…the meeting and the meeting after, getting a good sponsor, connecting with the fellowship as much as I could, I did service work whenever I could and I prayed a ton! How are things going so far?? – Heidi
That is exactly how it works
