Back on here after 3 years

Hello everybody, after 3 years of returning to my old habits I am back. 1 month after my last drink and feel good 99% of the time. I find there are times when I would love a drink, but I know what would happen.

Just posting this makes me feel better, I feel amongst friends.

I don't know if we r ever cured. I think we go into remission. Much like cancer or lupus. I've had/have both. I hopeu drinking never returns. I try like heck to ensure its demise. I'm always on the lookout. Bottom line. Is forgive. Quit again. And keep moving.

I'm really glad you are back.

I spent (or wasted) enough years seeking that elusive feeling that alcohol initially gave me.

I want no part of that old life back, and I hope that you feel the same way.

Please hang around and let us know how you are doing.
