Dealing with relapse - restarting sobriety - thoughts?

Hi All,

It has been a while since I posted. I finally got some success, attending meetings and i had just over 2 months AF under my belt. Everything started falling into place, and I was hit with a sudden sense of (some kind of) depression... and very quickly I relapsed. It has been 11 days and I just feel horrible. Need to get back on the wagon, going to a meeting tomorrow and will make it a point to share.

It might be that after those 2 months, sobriety started becoming my new normal, and I suddenly did not know what 'to do with myself' kind of thing - what now?! ...I guess sobriety was not the absolute number 1 priority anymore and I began looking at other things in life. damn it... here's to getting on track though. Would really appreciate any thoughts!
