Welcome, Samus.

My pattern is a lot like yours and you used the word inevitable which struck a chord with me. I often wonder why I am doing the sober thing (again) because my head says that 'inevitably' I am going to end up drinking again anyway. Recently, I have come to the conclusion that this is my alcohol voice trying to trick me. If it tells me that it is inevitable then what is the point, I might as well crack on and have a drink. So I have a new tactic now of telling that voice in my head to 'get lost' although I am not so ladylike about it. I then try to visualise a world where I am sober a long time that those thoughts are but a distant memory. Great to hear that you are feeling positive and that it feels different for you this time. If it feels different then it IS different.

Look forward to making the journey with you.
