I am excited to join this class. I have been struggling through a horrible hangover all day and I am so freaking sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Day 1 almost done. I look forward to sharing this journey with everyone who joins.

You don't need a drink, your life will be so much better without it. There's never a good reason for it.

"I will never drink again and I will never change my mind." - This has helped me tremendously in the beginning. Also, changing routines, surfing the urges, learning about HALT, working out, playing the tape forward, being mindful, taking the option of drinking completely off the table, always. And, most importantly, support right here on SR. Keep writing and supporting each other. We got this!

I've posted in quite a few classes over 2 yrs. I guess it's kind of embarrassing.

Staying alives not embarrassing though, living a better life's not embarrassing. Joining this class to contribute, and try to beat alcohol out of my life. Maybe help another, if anything I've got to say is useful, please take it. My gift to you. We all deserve better than to pass on from drinking.

Hi,
I've just joined today and done the "shame" post :-( I guess I will join you guys in here and hope I can stick with it. I haven't had a drink since Saturday, when I hit my rock bottom, so I'm already 3 days in (it's mid afternoon Tuesday here in the UK).
I really want to do this, but I'm so worried that I won't be able to because it's December ... Christmas parties, New Years ... ugh ... I can't even begin to imagine this month with no alcohol :-\

December 1, 2015 : day 1

Another dangerous and life threatening drink and drug binge that started on thursday night and I finally managed to bring it to an end and get myself into bed on Monday at 11.55 p.m.

People claiming to be "friends" but just taking advantage of me and making a fool out of me.

I feel like a domesticated cat who lost his way in the street and the alley-cats brought him into their world.

I don't belong there.

Marking my spot - I'll take the beanbag beside the Christmas tree please Day 2 here. I'm not new to this. It's been a bad year. I'm 30 now, and running out of excuses. I feel that alcohol is actually catching up on my physical health too, and that is scary.

I'm not in much of a position to offer advice I suppose, but I'd like to say to anyone who is nervous about the prospect of a sober Christmas - I was sober last Christmas, and it was, hands down, the best Christmas of my adult life. I was able to enjoy the atmosphere and relax so much better, and really let go of things. This year will be a bit trickier because I have family staying, but remembering how peaceful and lovely last Christmas was will help me through You can do this!

JL2014, I've been in my fair share of classes here too - well done for joining and coming back. Best of luck to you and everyone here

I can certainly relate to this. I'm so glad you're out the other side of that nightmarish binge. Health and happiness starts here <3

Declaring today another day 1. I've had enough starts and while I'm not spiraling lately or drinking every day I would like to get off the carousel again! So, hello!

Count me in for the December club. I too have been in more than my fair share of classes. Atleast we've kept trying. I hope this will be our last class!
Day 3 here. I was over a month sober last Christmas and I really did have a good time. Stress this time of year is a big threat to my sobriety. But I know that drinking always just causes more stress.
For now I'm keeping myself busy cleaning, baking, napping and reading. It's worked well the past 2 days so I'll keep it up. I will also come post here before running to the store for beer.
to all!
