New Beginnings

I'm new to the forum as well as new to sobriety. Over the last few years I've realized I can't do it alone. So I'm taking my first steps towards a better and healthier me.

Welcome to SR, YGL. You're in the right place for help.

The best weapon in my sobriety arsenal is knowledge. I learned a lot here by reading, so I recommend all new(er)comers do the same.

Best of Luck!
