Sober Loss


Going home to the end of mom but 92 year olds end. I'm so sad but sober sad is not so sad. My love to all My SR friends, I need support and I KNOW I have it. Thank you for being here for me. Wouldn't make it otherwise/ I will give back.

Thanks all. Its been a really bad few days. I guess it comes this way but I'm so blessed to have my SR friends. I think friendship is the key. Buddhist say Sanga, it's all fellowship/

So proud of you for handling these terrible times sober. We now know drinking only makes us more emotional & less able to deal with things. Wish I'd learned that long ago.

So sorry, I lost my Dad last year, I was grateful that I was sober to be there for my Mom. My thoughts are with you.

I know the feeling, it happens increasingly often after 50. My condolences on the waiting for the inevitable. Your Mom is blessed to have you as a son.

Darn, I'm almost glad I'm a drunk (not maybe really) I don't think I ever felt the connection with the sober world I do with you all. The best people I ever met were in treatment and service--Of course we were sick or serving :-)
