I can relate! At one time I had over 2 years without a drink, and then I fell on hard times and drank. But, I wasn’t sober, I was just abstinent due to the fact that although I thought I’d taken a good look at myself through self-examination, I realized that I didn’t learn enough about the reasons I became alcoholic, one being my lack of coping skills, which began in childhood.

For me it was easy to stop drinking, I’d done it a number of times, it was staying stopped I couldn’t master for a long time. Not drinking is just abstinence, staying stopped through rough times is sobriety.

As David Stewart, MD said from his book, “thirst for freedom“
”Few people realize that sobriety is an action of insights and skills far beyond mere abstinence. Sobriety is a creative discipline in the art of freedom of growth and of love. To be yourself, is to become yourself."

Glad you are here, Sean.

I hope that you can get clean and sober.

I know what it's like to chase benzo's with vodka and beer.

I certainly don't miss what you described.
