Nogard,

Thanks for the welcoming. I've been an avid reader of SR over the last year and I think now is the time to share and hopefully contribute something positive. Selah.

You got it Kev. Brought some Christmas Cookies, didn't have time to bake them. I did make the Hot Chocolate though.

Hi thanks for all the invites to join in. I'm on day one and just keep going over in my head all the reasons I will be so much better off sober. I did quit smoking about a month ago so I am a believer I have the ability just need the faith in God. I fell on my ass in the bathroom a couple nights ago, my stepdaughter (a nurse) comes running in I'm so embarrassed. Went to a Doctors appt last week with my wife for a 3:00pm appt, I hadn't drank since around 11:00 pm the night before. I lean over to tell her something and she goe s Jeez you reek of booze. Somedays my hands shake to the point people comment, I certainly have had days I couldn't write with a pen. It's time to make this right. I only wish I could learn how to sleep again. I'm used to taking something to sleep and having the booze intensify it to where I'd at least pass out for 6 hours!!

Welcome Steppen,

I think you know that drinking isn't fun anymore and its getting costly in more ways than currency. I've had the shakes and anxiety and I dont miss them for anything. Nor am I going to risk getting a hangover for a little, hour long, buzz.

Stick around, post around and do lots of reading. The beginning is tough, tough like wanting a cig as you and I both know, but it gets easier with time and practice. Many here find posting and reading a big addition to maintaining sobriety.

Hi Steppen and welcome to SR.

Glad to see you are working at staying sober. You are right, it can be done, one day at a time. I remember when I first got sober and couldn't sleep, people told me "no one ever died from lack of sleep" but they did die from the alcohol. Sheesh, I hated that, but it was true, I am living proof, lol.

It gets better, just have to give it time. I used those nights awake to pray and read the Big Book, yes I belong to the fellowship of AA, and the people there have helped me stay sober one day at a time.

Keep posting you can do it, I believe in you.

Thanks Believe,
As much fun and hell as I've raised at 58 it's time to quit embarrassing my family and being a load. I was fine last night just no sleep. I'll work harder tonite to set It up better with some tea and get something from the health food store for sleep. I'm glad AA is helping you.
