Sober Day 3

Hello I'm Chris. I'm on sober day 3. I feel good and haven't had any cravings. Doing something good for myself and rebuilding my family trust are my motivators

I will be attending an AA meeting this Sunday. Do you find it helps to have individual counselling as well?

I've never had counseling, but it couldn't hurt. After my last relapse, I decided to go "all in" for sobriety. AA, Dr's office visits, nutritionist, spiritual angle, etc. I never added a counselor to that list but probably should have.
It is easier to practice total abstinence than perfect moderation
Any quotes from the big book of AA are from the first edition, or are otherwise exempt from copyright infringement under the "fair use doctrine".

I saw a CBT counselor for about 6 months and I think it helped. I specifically wanted a non-addiction counselor because I wanted help with my sober brain. I also think the collective input from this forum is likely more than any individual addictions counselor could hold in one head.

Your mileage may vary, but that was how I did it.

Best of Luck on Your Journey!

Congratulations on Day 3 Chris. It's good to have you with us.
You are so much more than the worst thing you've ever done. Fr. Greg Boyle

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.
