Any students here, who have found an eagerness to study after becoming sober?
I am currently studying law with London Uni on their external course as a mature student.

I'm enrolled full-time in college. I walked away from a college education and a scholarship at age 18 because it interfered with my drinking/lifestyle.

Well, I've never been addicted, but I am a recovering codependent...I'm also a "mature" student working toward a Ph.D. in Geology with a Masters in Oceanography. I say rock on to all of us mature students!

I too am a recovering codependent, and adult child of alcoholics. I am working on a Bachelors in Nonfiction Writing. It's so much more fun and fulfilling this time around....I love being the oldest "kid" on campus

I am a recovering alcoholic, sobriety date 10/09/09...28 years old and in college, so I'm rusty cuz it's been awhile snc I've been in school and I'm having to relearn my life without alcohol. I thought I'd automatically be studying, having my head stuck in a book, once I quit drinking, but it's still hard for me to study...something to work on.... Suggestions anyone?

I'd like to go back. Finally got my BA last year after being in school for 6 years, failing out twice due to drinking, and not going to half my classes. I'd like to go back and actually learn something. :P

I started my first 2 college classes ever last week. (ITE115 and ENG111) It's been 25 years since I graduated high school. Never went to college, except to visit friends and go to the keg parties. In high school, I graduated "by the skin of my teeth", as my mother put it. lol I was more of an example of what NOT to do. :o)
I've been working in the human services field for 10 years now and have tried to advance into other positions, but have learned having a degree will improve those chances tremendously. So, instead of staying pissed off about not being able to do it, I decided to pursue my associates in human services. I'm 25 days into not getting high and 9 days into a college education.
Wishing everyone the absolute best in reaching your goals!!!

I'm in college I'm doing my BA: Sociology, social psychology. I'm back at school after taking time off because of using . I got through this year at school but it's been hard. Been depressed and well my marks are pretty low this semester. Last semester I was doing much better.

Just checking out the social groups. Awesome!
Halfway through my masters in geology, here. A tiny bit older than most of the students, but not so much that most of them notice.
