50 days

50 days sober and its really been 50 days playing catch up. I realized that being a drunk is like putting your life in neutral or park, at least it was for me. I literally could have woken up in January 2019 and besides a few very small differences it could have still been 2015 and I wouldn't have even noticed.

I didn't grow or progress at all in that time period, things just melted away due to drinking all the time and going on multi-day benders.

Boredom as always in early sobriety is a big problem and I have been using "catch-up" as my something to do.

Congratulations on fifty days, that's great.
I was stuck in suspended animation while drinking, too. For a long time. It's difficult for personal growth or maturing while wasted every day like I was so I know what you mean.
Many more sober days to you, my friend.
Oh, and I hope you don't get too bored. Even if I am bored, it sure beats being drunk and pretending I'm not bored, just drunk

It's always better to get the car running that to just sit there if you want to get to where you're going.

Well done on 50 days! Iím on 28 and have found this journey tough (but enlightening!), let alone 50! I get twitchy and bored, just try to keep busy and productive! Keep it up and keep posting!

This is not the best it gets SIB, You will catch up and you will start to make some ground. Things get better. Keep going
