I don't start threads lest they need startin but here goes: Fear keeps me sober! Yup, we can shine it, profile it, or even call it sumpin that it ain't but it is what it is. I do NOT want to be the guy that I was 10+ months ago. I fear the very place that I was at when I quit. It wasn't total schitz-ward but close. I don't want to be that guy that sez "what happened last night" or "how did I get here"-----be it last night or last birth. I'm sober for what I can become--be it tomorrow or the next millenium.... Peace.

I understand. I have fears as well. Fears for my health, my life, my marriage, my children and family. It is a huge motivator for me.

I fear I have another relapse in me, but maybe not another recovery.

No doubt. I feel the same way sometimes.

I try and balance the fear with opportunity. I have been given an opportunity to live a much better life without alcohol, and I want to take advantage of it to the fullest. But I still think it's important for me to remember where I came from, and respect/fear the consequences of any return to drinking.

Yes, I never want to go back there. I have had some tough situations lately (miscarried among others), and NOTHING could turn to me drink.
