I'm back..

The last time I was here, I was 19 and just got out of 4 days of detox. I was sober for two weeks.

I haven't been sober for more than 3 days since then.

I'm now 21. I have a great job that I've been at for almost a year, I got my own apartment.. But as much as I say I'm doing better- I'm not.

Today I took work off to go to an intake meeting and have my mental health and use assessed. I need outpatient treatment. I don't want to sabotage my life anymore.

So hi everyone! Hopefully I can actually be on this site regularly, and stick to sobriety and wholesomeness.

Welcome back! I hope the support here can help you get sober for good.

Welcome back Beingbetter. You absolutely can do this. I wish I had made the decision to quit when I was your age.

Staying close to this community helped me break the cycle.

Welcome back.

Welcome back, BeingBetter!

I'm glad you have a good job and that you are now planning to work on your recovery.
