Had over 4 months now I have 4 days..

Had over 4 months now I have 4 days..

For people out there still drinking..who are THINKING about stopping.. DO IT! it's SO worth it.

For people out there who stopped..but are THINKING about trying it again.. DON'T. It's HORRIBLE.


My life was going so good. I'm fighting again. You should too.

Hey CuteNGay,

Glad you're back...sorry you had a weak moment, BTDT. It's great that you've come right back and started again. Learn why you caved and ensure that you have a solid plan in order to not let it happen again.

Thank you for posting and reminding all of us how easy it is to fall back into our old ways.

"but i decided to post here so other people see its not worth it."

if only it were that simple!
if only we learned it that way, by reading that others found it not worth it....if it worked that way, you would not be in the spot you're in.

Unfortunately, seems we not only ignore others' experiences but often even our own. don't believe it, quite. can't believe it could be so.

CNG, stick around, welcome back, see what folks are doing and finding works for them longterm and comsider doing it.

I drank again many times. Each time I came back to sobriety I looked at what worked for me and what did not. I believe I have slowly put together a way to stay sober that works for me.

I glad you are back and ready to go at this again! I hope you will look at what helps you and re-establish that, and look at what didn't help, and eliminate that.

You know what you need to do so do it and relax and enjoy sobriety

its good you are back here and picking up where you left off. I had 4 months and now have 9 days, and this was by far harder than when I gave up the first time. It feels my brain changed somehow, far more cravings, far more fogginess, far more everything. Ive got to day 9 and the clouds are parting and its getting better gain, keep going, because as you say, its so NOT WORTH IT

Glad you're back, cuteandgay
sometimes it takes a few tries before it really clicks. Get back up, dust yourself off, and stop. I'll never be different, it will always be terrible. A sober life is so much better.

Hey welcome back! I am in the early days too and afraid to relapse. I have been struggling since September 2016 but finally working a "plan" ... so optimistic that this time will be different... have you thought about what caused you to drink after 4 months? I always had "autopilot" or "screw it" moments that turned into benders. . Anyway let's get it right this time, I am rooting for you!

Sorry to hear that you had a slip CuteNGay. Concentrate on the achievements you made in those 4 months and work from there!

Addiction really does suck but toss a hairflip and keep fighting! We're all rooting for you!

[Hope to see you around the January thread. Slip or no slip you are part of our team!]
