This Will Pass

Hi Guys - still here, still sober at goin on 14 months. Ive been spending time on Friends and Family here on SR, and a regular there posted this - I feel like this also works well for those of us still new in life as a non drinker:

This Will Pass

Breathe. You’re going to be okay.

Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived.

Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience.

I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

Haha really? I am always on my phone when browsing here and posting occasionally - can't see the number of posts.
