Yesterday was my first AA group and I enjoyed it. I like being able to be completely honest without fear of being judged. The bad part was that talking about my experiences made me really want to use again. Now I'm having really bad cravings and it's hard to distract myself. I wish I could take Nyquil or something and just sleep it off. Does anyone have tips to help me sleep?
rumuser...first off welcome to SR. This is a great place for support. Congrats on your sobriety!

I'm a lot like you as far as having a sleeping problem. I've always been a natural insomniac. A lot of people here, including myself, would recommend melatonin to help with your sleep troubles. It's all-natural and over-the-counter. It won't leave you feeling groggy in the morning either.

Keep up the good work. I'm on day 11 myself.
