Welcome Sara. I wasn't on here last summer, so I don't know what happened. The fact that you are honest though says a lot about you. You could have just signed up as a different member, which you didn't. Whatever it is you need to take seriously, I'm sure SR will help.

Welcome! I don't know why you got banned, but I am glad you're back.

Please let us know how we can help. I'm less than 30 days in (this time), but I keep going forward and it does keep getting better as long as I'm willing to do the work.

Hmm

Glad you made it back.

There's a saying in my group I like: "We don't shoot our wounded."
It like that because it coincides with the traditions:
"Each group has but ONE authority, a loving God.."

Addicts/Alcoholics are control freaks by nature. But who am I to play God?

Don't let anyone or anything stop you from seeking the solution.

Well, you'll never know unless you do and if nothing else you should know that nothing is too complicated for SR. We may not have the answers, but we will listen.

Hi Sara.

I remember you well from when you posted here before.

I suggest that you go to an AA/NA meeting. That is where I'm off in an hour.

I am still sober from when you posted from before and I am guessing that you probably aren't. Maybe you are finally realising that drink/drugs just ain't working anymore other than making things go to Sh*t. I am a few years older than you are and to be fair it has taken me untill 23 to really finally see that prison, institutions, death were the only 3 options with my drinking and drug use. I finally beat myself down so low as I just knew that I couldn't carry on with that crap anymore. I knew to win that i had to surrender. I stay away from that first drink on a daily basis and have over 5 months sober now. I would not have been able to maintain this without regularly meetings at AA and some of the people in AA however. It just keeps you grounded.

I am so gratefull that I am still sober and I am actually not dreading xmas/new year this year rather I am fairly peacefull/chilled out about it as I now don't have to worry about all the madness and insanity that my drinking would bring me.

Going to AA meetings gives me something to do with my evenings and I actually enjoy them TBH. I feel just as comfortable there and with the people there that I used to when drinking/drugging in bars/flats. So much more rewarding in the long-term though this sobriety lark though!! haha.

Good to see you back and there must be some part of you that realises that the path that your'e going down with drink/drugs is gonna end up destroying/killing everything in your life.

I wish you all the best and I urge you to just try to keep an open mind. Remember how open your mind felt on Acid trips ( I remember you done acid right?) well i try to apply what I learned on some of my trips to recovery.

peace xxx

Welcome back! I'm guessing it's sobriety that you are willing to take seriously this time. I hope so, cause continuing to drink/drug can only lead to negative consequences, and some of those negative consequences can't be un-done.

As far as your problem goes, why not put it out there and see if you can get some useful opinions/perspectives on solving it?

Welcome Sara. Glad you are back.

It sounds like you are coming to the realization that you can't do this alone -- and that is a good thing. We are here to help.

The end result is often death or jail, so I take my sobriety pretty seriously. I hope you will too.

I don't think this is enough for anyone to go on. There are lots of people here who might be able to help you.

Sara I am glad you are back.

You made an honest statement to start off with and if you notice no one ran away or told you to leave, instead you have had people extend the hand of help & hope.

Open up, be honest, no one needs details, but if we are to help we do need in a general way what is up.

Sara you are not alone, we are here for you.
