Jim - It's great to have you back with us. We have to be ready, & it sounds like you're fed up with the drinking life. It feels so good to get free of it. We're with you.

Hi Jim, welcome back. Different things work for different people. What helped me was coming to SR every day and participating ith the community here. I don't drink anymore but I still come here every morning and every evening. I start and end my day with SR and in turn re-enforce my resolve to be sober.

Welcome back. What are you going to do to make sure you stay sober? You need a good plan.

Welcome back Jim. I say seize this moment and don't stop putting one foot in front of the other on your way to sobriety. I'm sure you don't want another ~2 years of this? Could be longer next time. Or, there could be no next time.

Welcome back Jim. The best advice I can give you is...if you want to be sober you can be. You'll get out of your recovery what you put into it..

Action's the key

Hi Jim. The best time to quit was October 2016; the next best time is now. What worked for me was taking small steps each day to reinforce my decision to quit. Showing up here each day to read (and post sometimes) is something I do in addition to exercise and sobriety/recovery podcasts. A plan doesn't have to be grand or complicated, it just has to work
