My daughter asked me "Dad why aren't you drinking tonight" I was hosting a party at my place with all my mates. My answer was that i just don't want to drink.
My daughter replied "You've changed." to which I asked what do you mean?
"Well Dad you used to drink all the time and now you wont even drink at your own party. You don't need to drive or anything Its just not like you are you OK?"
I replied that i just couldn't be bothered drinking anymore....

Today should have been my one year anniversary of sobriety. The 8th April 2013 was my 1st day of giving up alcohol and is now what i call my recovery date. 30 plus years of drinking and building a life that evolved totally around alcohol and on this day i made a decision and started to fight back.
I stumbled upon this site after looking on the web for assistance to quit as i was spiraling into deeper and deeper addiction. Here i found what I needed to help me along my sober journey and for...

50 days today

Posted 03-18-2014 at 07:40 PM by Pedro1234

Well its 50 days of sobriety today and it has gone so quick. Don't get me wrong it hasn't been all smooth sailing but generally it has all been what i have expected.
Over the last week or so i have been pretty moody and i have generally tried to keep to myself to ride it out. Don't really know why! i haven't had excessive cravings and my AV hasn't really been that annoying to me. I guess its all part of the recovery process.
I keep making progress with my fitness and the additional...

Progress update

Posted 03-09-2014 at 05:16 PM by Pedro1234

I like to write these posts so i can go back over them if/when i am feeling a little down

Well i am on day 41 today which has included 5 weekends sober. I have found it really easy this time around. I am sure that my abstinence last year (7 months) has given me the solid tools i have needed to date to remain Sober and confident so far.
"SO FAR" These are the important words for me to remember. I need to learn from my past relapse how to deal with the trying times...

Here i go for the final time.

Posted 02-06-2014 at 10:23 PM by Pedro1234

Well April 2013 was the start of this journey and i made what i thought was a terrific start at my first attempt at sobriety. I lasted 7 months before i relapsed after battling a long spell of depression. No excuses really as i should have looked for another solution rather than the bottle but i guess old habits die hard.
After that i was weak on a couple of occasions over Christmas and that leads me back to where i am today.
I am now back on day 10 and really looking forward to the...
