A(nother) time for change

I've been here before, and I've had success. I've been struggling lately to stay sober and fight the demons that come with it so I wanted to come back. Not sure what I want, but I just want to reach out again. I want the sober life I know back.

When I was new to recovery, I didn't know what I wanted either, I just knew I didn't want what I had.

I started looking at the people who were happy, joyous, and free.

I listened to them. I watched them. I decided they had what I wanted.

I took from their shares and started to do what they had done to get to where they were. You know what..., it worked!

"I want the sober life I know back."

I think that's key.

But find the hard part is that while actively drinking one CAN'T REMEMBER what that life was like.
