Cool 22 Days

Well this is a first. I haven't written anything public regarding my addiction EVER. But this can't be done alone and a forum like this can reap many benefits.

I am happy to have reached 22 days. This is my second real attempt at getting sober. I honestly didn't know I was an addict until about last year. The first time I picked up my d.o.c was when I turned 21. It started to become a major issue once I finished my studies at University 2 years ago and had more time on my hands. I accepted that I was an addict last summer and I thank God everyday that I have been able to learn about this disease sooner rather than later. However, I had to come to the point I am at now to finally surrender. This disease is something I TRULY want to be something I am in control of and not something that is controlling me. I know us addicts can become extremely successful even more than "normies" once we get clean and stay consciously aware.

I will definitely write more and more as I progress. I will share information about my bottom, my goals, the things that I am grateful for etc. But as of now I just want to introduce myself to the forum.

My name is Michael and I am an alcoholic/addict. I am excited to start this journey with you guys.

Good luck Skywalker, admitting we have a problem and have truly lost control is probably one of the hardest steps.

Congrats on 22 days, it sounds like you are in a positive frame of mind and ready to be proactive with your recovery all in all sounds like you're doing pretty well so far.

Thank You! Yes, the hardest part was for me to accept that I am an addict and to stop blaming the environment or other people for my problems. I appreciate your kind words.
