I'm sorry to hear you're still struggling itsmytime.

what have you been doing to try and stay sober?
what do you think you need to do to make sobriety a permanent thing?

any ideas?

Well dee, what I've been doing to stay sober is to just not drink, which obviously isn't enough, I went to 2 aa meeting and saw a therapist a few times over the summer but I stopped when we were really making a connection. I contacted someone new this morning I'm gunna give her a try tomorrow. I just hope I get the help I need this is obviously much deeper then I thought and can't be done on my own, I'm also gunna re commit to aa, set a standard of 2-3 times a week plus therapy and regular workouts. I'm really gunna put the work in this time. Maybe it's not supposed to be easy

Not only is sobriety not "supposed" to be easy, it isn't easy. In fact, it's probably one of the hardest things you'll have to do in your life initially. But the rewards are very much worth it.

It sounds like you have a good plan to get back into AA and see your therapist, and you now have clear evidence of what happens when you don't stick with the plan.

I mean I stopped seeing the therapist because we were not making a connection so I just stopped going, hopefully I will have better luck with someone else

Just a silly little quote from a silly little movie. "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" Being a bird is a bit s**t, but let's fly the F**k out of here!
