I'm back

As I've been unable to stay sober up to now I thought it appropriate I say hello in the newcomers section...hello

After having been drunk for the past 4 days I'm back where I started, except that this time I feel I hit my rock bottom last night and believe that I will finally change my ways for good. I'm just so glad that my partner is sticking with me...he hasn't given up on me so I won't either.

Welcome back. I am so with you--after a couple of days of binging, I am back today, and looking for the support of the group. So together, we can stay sober today, just for today. We all have to believe that we're worth saving.

Welcome back Burstpeach and citylights, I know citylights has a plan, he is going back to what worked for years for him & adding SR to it, what are you doing to stay sober?

I will share with you that I found after many years of trying that doing the same thing over & over again leads to the same results over & over again. I learned that if I want different results I needed to try something different.

Oh that feeling of waking up from a bender. I don't ever want to feel like that again - never ever. You don't have to either. Just keep that thought in mind whenever the going gets tough and please stick with us - both of you.
Welcome!

Sometimes this is what needs to happen - I know it was for me - I had to be absolutely disgusted and terrified. The last time that happened I feared for my life after a 3 week binge. My body couldn't take any more abuse. I came here and never looked back. I found the encouragement I needed from people I respected, who had been where I had.

You can do this - remember how you feel right now, and vow to never put yourself back there again. A new day will dawn for you - you will be free.
