jencee congrats on your sober time!!! When we boild it down that is the only way to do it.......... one day at a time, one hour, one minute if need be, of course working on changing that person that we were is a HUGE part of recovery because if we stay the same person that used then we will return to drinking again.

Dear Jencee,

It's really nice to read your message - I'm also a newcomer here and understand how you feel. Easter weekend was a tough one for me as it was my 1st 'sober' one since I can remember! I feel so good for getting through it and am seeing things from a fresh new perspective now! I agree that Soberrecovery is giving us great support

Hope you have a lovely day and week ahead !!

Warmest wishes,

Almath

Hello Jencee and Almath,

Congratulations on your decision to take your life back.

It really is helpful to [type] talk out loud about feelings and emotions while adjusting to this new and awesome way of life. It eases the burden of carrying it on our shoulders so type-talk away anytime! We've all been there...

When I first got sober, it was to make the horrendous physical and emotional pain go away - it was unbearable. Along the way, I began to really like the person I was becoming so I decided to keep her

I still grow and learn something new every day and it's amazing.
