Hello!

Hi. This is my first post/visit on this site as a registered participant. I've been visiting for awhile now in my sobriety journey. I'm at 144 days and I have to say, visiting this site and reading others experiences has been another tool I've used in this new path I'm on. I finally joined today and look forward to the interactions and sharing to come! None of you realize how helpful you've already been to this stranger in a strange new land! Thank you!😊😊😊😊

Welcome to posting Elizabite and well done with 144days sober. Are you part of a program in real life? Just curious. Glad you are here.

Thank you all!! As far as programs: I started my journey by visiting Face It Together. I met with an amazing recovery coach who advised me to join A.A. I was not happy with that advice as you can imagine but it was the best advice I've ever received. Face It Together called me every other day during my first month (at my request) and they were my lifeline. So between going to my A.A. meeting weekly and reading the forums here.... It's working for me!!!! Things are happening now in my life that I didn't think possible!

144 days - that's wonderful Elizabite. I felt so much better when I came here - I was no longer alone. We can do this!

Welcome to the posting side of SR Elizbite

I see your smileys too? I'm afraid I'm not conversant with anything other than a PC tho
