Three years is great. Hope you are happier in recovery than you were the last time you posted.

Congrats on three years. You and I must've gotten sober around the same time. Welcome back.

Yes, I agree. I wish people with extended sobriety posted more often. Life is always going to have its ups and downs but I have yet to hear anyone wake up and say I wish I drank a whole lot of alcohol last night and feel really sick right now

Thanks everyone.. man, you guys and gals are so cool. I really appreciate that. Yes, I need to come around much more. It's been a roller coaster ride, i must admit. The obsession took about 15 months to lift, but that was me, others have had it quicker. I think the main thing that keeps/kept me going is to play music. I write constantly and play in 2 bands. I think it's very important that we find something we are very passionate about and immerse ourselves in it, just like with drinking or other substances. I think it has to be something, anything.. as when you stop, you need to have something to do, to fill the space where alcohol or drugs were. Does that make sense? I need get another sponsor as well, the self-sponsoring does not work, as I am seeing evidence of this right now... Have a good day and thanks for reading.
