Progressive

Today I heard another sober alcoholic say that alcoholism/addiction is progressive...and so is sobriety.

Just thought I'd share...sobriety has had its ups & downs so far but if I charted it (like a stock or something, lol) it would have an overall gradual upward trend.

Good night SR & thanks for being here

Knurdyone ,
Sure seems it to me when i read what happens to people here . Rather than my life having a 20 year bull run there seems to have been a succession of bear markets with lower lows and lower highs . Until i stopped .

Now it's successively higher troughs and higher peeks, my life is growing and paying dividends again rather than being a basket case

Take care, keep on

Keep pushing through Knurdyone!!

For me both were true, my drinking spiralled to new lows, but Sobriety has shown me even greater heights!!

The only way I know that I'm progressing is by looking backward. I do not see change on a daily basis but I know I'm not the person I was
