Hard to answer when the question is vague Miz

but I got sober in spite of my family, in spite of the friends I'd collected, in spite of the way I solved problems, in spite of the way I regulated my moods. in spite of the fear I had over change and responsibility and the future....

in spite of everything, I had a simple binary choice.
Life or death.

I made a good choice.
I know you can too Miz

I mean, how does this cycle change? Im all good sober until 1 year later? ( all writings are done in a very calm voice. I am not angry or emotional. Just inquiring....no one really has the answer)
I have the answer for me. I can suggest it to you but only you can accept it as the answer for you.

Itís different for everyone, but several here have figured out some common things: acceptance of the problem is the first, then the second is making it the highest priority in your life; I.e. doing anything and everything you can to avoid drinking, until that becomes second nature.

Thatís pretty much it.

Hey Mizz, so what happens at a year? That was a surprisingly turbulent milestone for me.. I think it had to do with unmet expectations and realizing the magnitude of the changes that still needed to occur.

I'm not a fan of indoctrinating programs or authority either. Just of freedom and being in control of my own life again. Contrary to being powerless I think sobriety is the most empowering thing I've ever done for myself..

So good to "see" you Mizz.

Anything else you feel comfortable to share?
