4 detoxes,2nd rehab seems to be working

40 days sober longest since I was 14,im almost 50.Worst so called bottom eas 5 months of aprox a liter of vodka a day or more cant remember a lot.Took rehab very serious this time death was going to be the next stop if I didn't get it right.About 40 days sober on naltrexone and a few other meds not much of a craving,learned a ton in rehab about how the brain functions and how damaged it gets and the dopamine,receptor frontal lobe styff makes sense.So far so good I know I don't GOT IT day............

Welcome! Congratulations on making the decision to save your life. You're putting in the hard work...awesome! I'm one month sober after drinking vodka all day every day and loving it. Stick with it. Consider SR an essential daily vitamin. Look forward to watching you claim your life back.

Sober is the new cool!
