Hi mburnsc

I remember it took me about 3-4 months to feel anywhere near normal, so maybe you're not as badly off as you might think? I dunno how many years you drank for, but it might take several months to reset yourself...

I also think it's a little risky to compare ourselves to others - it's your recovery after all - noone elses, and whats the AA saying about beware of comparing your insides to others outsides?

I think there's some truth in that.

I think ultimately, though, if we're not happy we have a right to ask why....noone gets sober to be miserable....

so why not start the steps if you're already an AA member?
Why not see a Dr or a counsellor to make sure there's nothing physical or psychological going on?

I think doing something always beats feeling miserable
