My first 90 Days sober ever!

Hi Everyone,

I am pretty sure this is the first time in 20 plus years that I have been without alcohol for 90 days, wow. Thanks everyone for your support throughout my first 3 months clean and sober. It has been a tough road taking almost all of 90days to feel any significant improvements. Life has never felt better and I can only imagine what the future will bring .
For those of you who are having a hard time staying sober or still feeling like crap while being sober, "stick with it and dont give in" I can tell you that things do change and it will be an amazing journey without that demon following you around.

Thanks Again,
MahiMahi

Hi Dean,

I felt like I was drugged 24/7 no energy what so ever for the first 8 weeks or so. I was also a nervous wreck, no focus, my thoughts all over the place, man I thought I was going crazy. I had no desire to do anything and was beginning to think that life was just not worth living anymore. I couldnt sleep and when I did get to sleep it was only for a few hours or so. Well with the right nutrition and exercise and a positive mental outlook I have found my way back to feeling normal again. Like I said it was a long road for me but well worth it.

Stick with it Dean, no one said it was going to be easy you will be thankful you did.

Mahi

Mahi, that's great. I am somewhat similar, I haven't gone this long for about 15 years, I guess. Passed my 5 months over the weekend. I think an urge or two will come about once the 6 months get here, but I have been keeping my eye on my outlook. I think with me it is not so much a challenge not to drink out of a sense of old routine or boredom but more the exasperations or whatever pulls me down into a negative mood - those are the things that I am wary of, but still going strong for me.

Hi Toronto, five months is awesome, great job. I think my biggest problem, which is similar to yours is still feeling down or depressed and that makes me think that mabey a pill or a drink will make me feel less depressed. I know it wont but that thought passes my mind pretty much on a daily basis. I will keep your accomplishment of 5 months sober in my mind the next time I think about taking a drink, thanks!

It can be like an incentive thinking about the amount of time we put behind us without "using", that's true.

Congrats MM. Giving up alcohol is a little like playing Monopoly when you're
winning. You keep passing GO!
