Alcohol-ISM

Posted 08-29-2016 at 03:45 PM by blueberry2015

Today Im going to write about my understanding of alcholism.

For years I denied to myself that I was an alcoholic mainly because of a pre-conceived idea as to what an alcoholic was. Ignorantly I thought the alcoholic was the bum on the street, whom had lost everything and drank round the clock. Whilst this can be true (although not necessarily a bum) it is not always the case.

Alcoholics come from all walks of life, from those with dual addiction to the successful...

How AA and Sobriety has changed my life !

Posted 06-11-2016 at 10:41 AM by blueberry2015

Just recently I have been feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude and feeling so content and happy in my life and of my life. Without a shaddow of a doubt getting sober has been the best decison of my entire life.

AA has helped me in so many ways, firstly the steps have helped me to identify my trueself. Years and years of drinking and depression I had lost myself, hence when first coming into recovery I was so confused I didnt know who I was at all. AA has helped me to discover...

The moment the penny dropped

Posted 06-03-2016 at 12:51 AM by blueberry2015

Socialising sober with normal drinkers

Posted 05-31-2016 at 04:17 AM by blueberry2015

I personally didnt do this until til about four months sober, whilst opportunity had presented itself I just felt I wasnt ready.

For me, I tried not to stress about it, knowing that if I had let my anxiety got the better of me like it had when my 40th Birthday was approaching that could of led to relapse. So instead I made a plan.

I worked out what I was going to say if someone offered me a drink. To polietly decline and if I was asked why I wasnt drinking (some people...

The first three months of sobriety was a huge emotional roller coaster, at times I felt elated, I was really doing this sober lark! At times I felt like I was bouncing off the walls with joy and happiness!! And then at other times I felt so lost and confused, low and anxious, mentally unstable even. I questioned if I really was an alcoholic or whether I was biopolar, or some other kind of mental illness. The highs were very high and the lows very low.

What I realise now that this...
