[I]"I will be who I want to be, when I want to be. I want to accomplish things, and sobriety is not an accomplishment"[I]

Sobriety for me was a transformative experience that has saved my life, restored my family life, and helped others who thought I was a goner to realize that anything is possible. I have graduated from walking into walls, falling off yachts, driving my car drunk into other people's garages, and sleeping on the couch or floor, into someone who can navigate a passageway safely into a bedroom where a person who likes me me allows me to share a bed with them. I can go out to sea in a yacht and return safely to port, and my car always ends up in my own garage. So, for this alcoholic, sobriety is an accomplishment -- a life-changing one at that.

heres the thing.. i think you may be one confused individual...and actually, i cant speak for anyone else here, but I am a bit insulted at the your seemingly way to scoff at this whole addicion board, coming here telling us that this , that "we" make you feel like drinking, well for goodness sake STAY AWAY, i mean geez...hey ya know when i go out of my way when im in the grocery store and i pace up and down the booze aisle that really makes me want to drink...hmmmm. maybe i shouldnt do that? would that be your advise for me? If so, then take your own

I'm going to put myself out there for what I expect could be rejection and/or criticism. I read this thread last night, and the responses to Che's comments have bothered me tremendously. Before I joined SR, I spent a lot of time on the site. The posts also triggered me and made me want to drink. This shouldn't be insulting to anyone; I have different beliefs, a different mind, and a different way of approaching my goal compared to many of you.

I stopped visiting SR for a while, strengthened my beliefs, and returned (and am glad I did.) I understand and agree with a lot of what Che wrote. I silently support many of you as I read the posts on this site. And I know that you support me because you give me the answers before I even ask the question! But, we are all different.

as an alcoholic of my type i dont believe in triggers....im gona drink wether i want to or not,against my will,its what im programmed to do unless i live in a spiritual solution.
triggers no.....justification and excuses yes.but thats just me.and i only realised this when i got honest and got serious about recovery.

You know what I think Che? I think that you came here because you want our help. That's what I think.

Never needed an excuse to use but would use any excuse as well.

Getting well takes time and first we have to put down the drugs
