ten months sober today,
hi, i'm new to this forum and just wanted to introduce myself.
i'm ten months sober today. not feeling the love right now, i've heard that the ninth month is the hardest in the first year and i have to say i would agree with that. i'm determined to make a year, but these past few weeks have been really tough.
i'm a 17 year alcholic, started when i was fourteen and just drank my life into oblivion. finally couldn't take it anymore this year after two hospital stays. the first, my heart almost stopped and the second to detox. after the detox, i wound up spending a lovely night and part of the next afternoon in the local drunk tank. not the highlight of my life!!
so i checked into rehab, and here i am ten months later. sober and for the most part enjoying it, but there is always that little voice in my head saying,, do it, drink, nothing bad will happen!! hopefully this voice will fade in time.
i'm not interested in aa, tried it out and was not for me. am currently reading the book rational recovery and seeing how that one works.
hope to have some support and interesting discussion in this group!

Welcome to Sober Recovery and congrats on your 10 months.
There are several people here who do not go to AA. I have read the RR site and feel it is a good way to go. You learn to reckonized the voice of your addiction and learn how to let it die it's own death by deprivation right?..
You might also want to try Sober Teens if you want to talk to people in your age group. There is link at the bottom of this page just scoll all the way down and You will see it. My best wishes go out to you. Oh and uh...feel the love!!!
nice has a hisssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

thanks for the welcome!!
just to let you know splendra, i'm not a teen anymore...i wish!! i started drinking at fourteen and drank for seventeen years, i'm in my thirties now.
yes, rr lets you recognize your addictive voice and not allow it to control your actions. it's essentially what i've been doing for the past ten months, i just didn't realize that it had a name until earlier this week when i picked up the book rational recovery.

GRATS ON THE 10 MONTHS
I don't know if, a person has to attend AA all there life but, it helped me get sober.
Mostly, I think AA has been good at gettting me to do service work for other people.
It's a sad world living in it's all about me.
Do hope, that if you don't go to meetings, you find someway to contribute back to society. Best thing you can do for yourself
LIFE IS GOD'S GIFT TO YOU

Whatever you're doing to stay sober, keep doing it... a day at a time.
Recovery is not a mysterious process. The only mystery is why it took some of us so long to get here... and why some choose not to stay.
