Hi jo.

I drank for about 200 years. I am now 7 months sober.

Your can be sober if you want to. I agree....you gotta have hope.

Stick around SR. It's an awesome place.

Welcome to SR and congratulations on your first week and then some. The beginning was hard because you had to intentionally change your habits. I will never forget the first week. I drank wine for years starting at 4 pm until bedtime. I had to change that whole evening routine. It worked, but it wasn't easy. SR was really the glue for me and it kept me glued to sobriety. Glad you joined us. You'll do it!

Hello~
Im also on day 9. Am having some trouble tonight. I have had to talk myself out of taking a pull off of my husbands bottle about 50 times, NO KIDDING!
More than once tonight I have said "Who would know if I just took a couple of drinks off of that bottle, Then I nearly have to yell in my head "YOU!" YOU WILL KNOW!

Thankfully its getting late enough now, I can maybe go sit on the couch & watch TV & not think about it any more, I HOPE!!!

I have been drinking for 500 years and it's a tough habit to break. It was all a pattern for me......had to change alot of things.......still working on it. Tomorrow is only a week for me but feels like such a milestone. Stick with it, we are here for you!

My drinking career was much shorter than that but it's over now. Yours can be over too. Congrats on nine days and welcome to the family!

I am only on day 3. But I see more hope this time. Going to that AA meeting was the best thing I ever did. Right now is when I get the urge but I know that there's a meeting I can go to if I need to. I passed the beer at the store today. What really bugs me is that beer commercials are still on tv. You don't see cigarette commercials anymore. Tomorrow is going to be hard for alot of us.
