New and scared

I'm a new participant here. My overwhelming feelings are fear and uncertainty.

I'm new and scared too. But I'm trying to be grateful and less afraid. Thank God I'm sober today. What scares me more is another blackout. Congrats, it does feel scary, I know. But also feel like freedom?

when I got sober I felt the same way. I had no clue what life whithout alcohol was going to be like and didn't think it could be possible to have fun sober.

something that kept me working on learning a new way of living was another fear and uncertainty- that of a life with alcohol still in it.
It was only going to get worse.

Hi and welcoem abaopard fb789

We understand - its very very normal to feel those things - I felt the same when I joined but the wonderful community here really helped me turn my life around. It was such a relief to find people who understood

You're not alone and you're among friends here

Looking forward to hearing a little more about what brings you here
