Good luck with getting through Friday and notching up your first week. Day 3 for me, and will also be quite a test for a couple of reasons. But posting this will help me through that.

Lots of SR reading for me in the last day or two - so valuable and useful. Thanks to all for sharing and supporting one another.

Three weeks today!

I'm listening to a CD of AA speakers a bloke gave me at a meeting and Patti O has me in stitches. Wish I could talk or write like that. It's a miracle to be able to admit the catastrophes and chaos we cause when we're drunk and then laugh about it.

Great to see all of you posting here. I really look forward to hearing what you're all up to today. And any lurkers Please Post. I read everything everyone writes - maybe a bit obsessively It's really keeping me company when I get anxious.
I believe we're stronger together.

Slept so much better. The world is looking like a better place today.

We are stronger together friends.

I'm committing to a sober long weekend. Who's with me?

Another lovely day here in Tyneside.

I'm back on my own home PC now so I'll be able to personally thank any replies I get.

I hope people did not think I was ungrateful over the past week, I just wan't able to, but I do thank everyone who has helped me over the past few days.

Haven't logged in a while because I've been so busy but I'm still sober. I think it's day 18 and I have no plans to drink. In fact the antidepressants are starting to kick in. I'm sleeping a lot but I am no longer as tired during the day. Things are looking up! Here's to another sober weekend!!!

Big weekend!

Going on 19 days without using. This weekend will definitely be a challenge for me because I know that there will be some temptation. I need to be strong 💪🏽 Wish me luck!

Day 5 and I'm dying

New here and Day 5. It's red wine for me, I can't have just 1 glass I finish the bottle(or more). I'm Mom to 3 young kids. The cravings and obsession is killing me right now, anxiety is through the roof but I made it through another day.

One day at a time Asphodel. You have the combined might and wisdom of Sober Recover members at your fingertips. You may be doing this on your own but you are never alone.

Keep going. It's worth it.
