Hi camie, I don't have much in the way of advice but just wanted to say well done on 5 days.

I had 10 days recently but haven't managed to better that yet, will keep trying though. Today would have been another day 5 for me if I hadn't slipped up last night.

This is a great site, loads of supportive people and tons of experience here.

Welcome Carmie! If you haven't yet, I recommend reading around on the various forums here. There's so much great information about how to maintain your resolve to stay sober. It's been a great help to me.
You have made mistakes, and you may not be where you want to be, but that has absolutley nothing to do with where you can be in the future.
