Newcomer Checking In.........

Hi everyone, I'm new to this website, but not new to recovery. I had a relapse recently, and have been sober for a couple of days. Feeling a lot better already, and having found this website, I think it will be instrumental in helping me stay sober. I'm really glad I found it! Glad to be here, thanks!

Thank you! This place is awesome! I had problems when I was working on the road, being out of my usual environment. I *could* have picked up a phone and found some meetings, but instead I picked up a drink. Now I know I can get in touch with other alcoholics/addicts wherever I am in the world! That is a great boost of confidence! Not to mention, this place really does offer *true* anonymity. Thanks for having me aboard!

Thanks for all the words of encouragement. I've been sober since yesterday technically, since I drank on Monday morning. However, I just got back from a meeting, and already feeling a lot better. Thanks for all the support!

Welcome to the family Squizz. You're doing the right thing - be proud of yourself.
SR helped get me sober and keep me that way after a very long & destructive drinking career. This is an amazing place with some of the best people anywhere.

Yeah, this place seems great. Not many places you go online for recovery/sobriety. I'm glad I can pop by every so often.
