Smile day 5 or 7

Hi, I have been sober for 7 days, but they tell me I shouldn't count the days that I spent locked in a medically supervised detox ward where you couldn't drink if you wanted to. I went in there totally voluntarily, and I was amazed to find that I was the only one there who was on my first go-round with detox. I plan to make it my last, also. I was also amazed to find out only 2 of us were just alcoholics. All the rest were either both alcoholics and addicts, or addicts only. While in there I realized how very fortunate I am. I had a good job, a loving partner, and a good home to go back to. So many of the people I met had no place to go when they got out. Some of them were going to shelters, jail, etc. Some of them had destroyed their health, and I am fortunate that I have decent lab results, after all the hell I have put my body through for so many years. I hope to come to this forum regularly to get support and to offer any support I can give.
