3 months sober now! Thanks SoberRecovery!


had a problem with my binge drinking, it was affecting my study, economy and a whole lot of other things. Finally managed to quit the drink, and now things are going a lot better. Got control over my debt, passer my final exams this semester with good grades, and found a new place to live.

I now have the energy to do other **** than drown my problems in beer, so things are looking good!

Let this be encouragement for those of you who still struggle, you can do it and be in control of your own life. :

That's great news. I've been sober now for 2 and a half months and I, too, have managed to completely turn my life around. When I was right in the depths of alcohol I believed I would never be able to pull myself together, especially not in 2 and a half months! Well done on managing all those things you've listed - they're all achievements. All the best!

That's great news Kallum!

Amazing what King Alcohol robs us of and how sobriety can make life liveable again.
