I'm back and very glad to be back

I did a complete week then after a major pitfall in school/work I took another break, but now I'm determined to keep my sobriety up for the long term. That taste of what I had has made all the difference. I plan to just deal with this hang over, go to work and afterwards go straight home.

One day at a time. It helps to take the pressure off.

When people say "I will never drink ever again" it is sometimes a big burden on the mind and it adds stress.

Good luck.

Welcome back sonkien. Do you have any specific plans for what you might do this time to make sure you don't drink again?

Thanks for your posts.

What I plan to do this time around is reassure myself that I cannot have just one drink. And not turn to alcohol when things go bad.

I'm going to remember this hangover and try keeping myself busy. It was a ritual in the past after work and on my days off to pick up my pint, head home and drink it while on my computer with the tv on. I plan on incorporating more exercise in my life once I feel better.

I'm also planning to check out the recovery plans D mentioned.

I'd like to check out some local social gathering and make some new friends and fill my time with other things then just staying in my room after work.
