Starting out again


Hi all... its been a while since ive been in here..
Hope you are all well..

Im starting out a sober life again. Day 2 today. But not setting a number of days, or a date. I just want to be sober today.

Every morning i can say, i was sober yesterday, and ill be sober today as well.

Congrats on your sobriety, Shorty.

Find some new activities to fill the time you used to spend drinking.

Reading, music, fitness, work, step study, meetings... anything so you won't be just doing nothing.

Sitting around idle, thinking about drinking is not usually good.

Keep coming back.
