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.
In the deep night my AV whispers You cannot weather the storm.
That it can never learn still amuses me. It must always be reminded. So with a smile I whisper back I am the storm.

Yay, glad you're proud of yourself. Congratulations on 5 days sober.

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
