Still around, still sober


Just wanted to say Hi all and check in. I havent been posting very much. That's probably not a good sign.

I guess i have been getting caught up in all of lifes dramas and stressors.

So im checking in.

I have 172 days sober. My mind still fights me, but Im still fighting back.

Hi I hope you are all well and sober!

172 days is fantastic!! You should feel really good about what you've accomplished.

It's easy to get caught up in all the stuff of life..... I can get easily overwhelmed just thinking about it. But at least we're not adding alcohol to the mix anymore (and I actually do like myself these days even if I feel crazy sometimes!)

Just reading here every day really helps me remember what my #1 priority is. Glad you decided to "check in."
