No choice


So I've run out of pills this is my time to get sober lord give me the strength having all these doubts should I do it? What if I'm bored? What if I don't like it? I'm almost scared to be sober... Give me strength I don't want to fail

My first thought reading this was, "live in the moment" ... don't think. Just stop thinking, stop thinking, stop thinking. Let the worry, worry itself to death.

Every time your brain "goes there", reroute it. Distract it. Don't humor it.

ACCEPTS

I'm sure others will be quick to hop to the rescue here - good for you for DOING this and reaching out!!! Your desire is obvious in all your posts.

I was scared to be sober too. My brain had convinced me I couldn't live without my addiction. In the end, I realized it wasn't my brain really, that had convinced me - but the voice of my addiction speaking in place of my brain. That ah-ha moment has kept me going.

Have you looked into detox centers/treatment? I think someone asked that here, I can't recall - didn't know what the upshot on that was.

He doesn't just want your addiction.

Try offering all of you.

Yes, God.

Familiar with the 3rd step prayer of AA?

Try sending that one up and meaning it with every fibre of your heart and soul.

I had a lot of fears and anxiety of the unknown, but in the end had to just go for it, because something had to be better than the chaos that had become my life, what did I have to loose.

Go for it, you can do this!!

You can make the change. After 21 years of heavy, daily drinking, I was afraid of change, I didnt know the sober me any more. My life and everything in it revolved around drinking. I thought my personality did too... I was locked in my own addiction prison, day and night.

Little did I know, drinking was just hiding the real me, my true personality behind a curtain of lies.

Find yourself again, hard at first but worth the pain and effort, trust me, trust us here at SR.

You can do it!
