This is one of those things where you'll never know what it's like until you experience it.

If that sounds like a BS answer it's really not.

My ideas of what sober life would be like were very brief abortive attempts at sobriety did nothing to quell that terror.

But I needed to quit, or die. So I quit.

I found after a little while, things got better. After a little more time, I got comfortable with being sober.

After a little more time after that I loved being sober

You don;t have to believe me - take a look at all the other sober folk here. Noone would stay sober if it was torture, scared.

You need to take the leap of faith, scared.

Keep drinking and things will not improve - they'll only get worse.
