New to SR, but not to recovery...Hello!


Greetings all! Creeping up on 5 years of sobriety and needed to find some support from people "like" me. I have a very supportive family, but we don't talk about my addiction much as I make it look very easy on the outside. On the inside though I work my ass off to stay sober, having good days and of course horribly painful(mentally) days. Anyway, I'm very excited to be a member and hope to be able to contribute, having a positive impact on the group and myself.

Welcome,

I wish I found this site years ago. I had 5 years and then went back trying to moderate and now back to square one. I am on Day 24 and feeling confident I will stay this time. Been struggling the past two years, this is the longest I have gone AF since taking it up again 4 years ago.

You are very wise to search out support as I am proof no amount of sober time guarantees forever.

Looking forward to getting to know you.
IMT

sampar-couldn't have said it better myself, love the fact that this resource always here!

IMT-stick with it, you'll be at five years again in no time.

NEO-"massive achievement" You have no idea how good that just made me feel...seriously. I don't know that anyone has ever made me feel that good about being sober.

Thank you all
