If feelings have you down, don't give up!

The major thing that keeps me moving forward in my sobriety is having faith that no matter how angry, lonely, bored, sad or even excited I am, the urge to drink will always pass. I've had times since getting sober where I felt awfully emotional for a full week but kept strong in my resolve that a drink won't solve (or enhance) anything. I am finally feeling myself after a tough couple of weeks. It's a beautiful thing to know that just having hope I will feel better is enough at times. Have a great day everyone!

Yes, I needed this post today, thanks. Been feeling very emotional lately. On Day 5, again, after making it 20 days and then up having to start over because of 1 bad night. Just reading and hearing that it does get better keeps me going.
