4 months... Hang in there, Newcomers...

Today is my 4 month sobriety date.
It's such a long time for me, and yet such a blip on the radar of life.
Hang in there, newcomers.
It does get better.
Does it get perfect? No, but nothing is.
Loneliness still appears, life's traumas are still life's traumas...
And yet, when the knee-jerk reaction isn't to escape from feelings of discomfort, everything changes.
Just telling you what my experience is.
It's still hard, but I don't think about drinking all the time anymore.
Each day waking sober (and sleeping better finally!) is a blessing.
Just wanted to tell you to hang in there.
Hugs to all.

SoberMama, Congratulations!

I'm on day 8.

I so appreciate you coming back for us. Reaching out is important, and you've made a difference in my life today.

Thank you, and hugs back.

Good Job Sobermama!
I am on month 3 and feel good too! I am happy to say that drinking isn't first on my mind anymore either!

If I can do it anyone can! Keep on keepin' on!
