Welcome to SR.

I've been sober for two and a half years. If I could, I grant you the ability to feel what I feel for an hour. The blessings of a sober life is all the motivation I can offer.

Posting on SR and helping others helps me stay motivated, staying connected with other alcoholics and making sure I keep moving forward...

Hi Scooter - and welcome - I think sometimes it just takes work - doing what you know you need to, but might not necessarily want to...

support helps a lot too - and you'll find a lot of that here

What has helped me stay motivated is constantly replaying how horrible I felt in my head. Waking up with my head pounding, vodka seeping out my pores, my hands shaking, my eyes bloodshot, unbelievably thirsty,an feeling like death..... Only to drag myself to the kitchen to starts all over again. I know I never want to feel like that again. Ever. And when I'm feeling my worst I think of that and it helps me.
