90 days

Well in one hour I will see 90 days. It seems kind of unreal. I remember the first few weeks going by so darn slow and now they are gaining speed. What I have learned is there is still so much to learn about living a sober life. Like all alcoholics we numb our lives with alcohol. The thing I love most about being sober is that I am not in a rush for the most part. I am not having to get to my next drink so I am more apt to being in the moment where I am. Some of the things I do to stay sober is pray every day and journal even more prayers at night. I rely on the hope that it does get better. I attend AA around 4 times a week and work with my sponsor on the steps. I avoid places that I am not sure I can handle right now. If I am in a situation that involves a lot of alcohol (I avoid if I can) I have a written relapse prevention plan ahead of time. I see an addiction counselor every week who is also in recovery. Alcohol wasn't working for me. I am now looking at this journey as a way to find my true happiness without masking it. I hope people who are struggling hold on tight cause it does get easier. Is it easy?? Heck no! I still question and have doubt about all this but I don't have to feed into the addiction. We gain nothing by drinking but stand to lose everything by continueing so why not just try something different?

Well done on 90 days. It was a big milestone for me too. I never thought I would last that long so I never kept track of the time.

No one was more surprised than me when my sponsor told me I had reached 3 months. I was too busy on the steps to notice the time I guess, but it is amazing how things change when we get busy with the program. By 90 day I was certain I was on the right track. Sounds like you are too

Thanks everyone! Woke up with a five mile run (ok there was walking also) about to head to church and then AA for my chip. What a day much better than the life I was living over 3 months ago
