First time here

Hi all! First time here . I'm on day 8 and feeling surprisingly good. This is my first time actually committing to getting sober for good. Attended my first AA meeting Monday and will be going again tomorrow. I know a lot of people do more meetings at first but I'm coupling it with my therapy appointments and trying to add in a good bit of exercise and so far so good. I've had a few moments here and there where I've thought a drink would be nice but after a few deep breathes (and prayer) I got past the urge. I know I can do this and am happy I have found this site for support.

Glad your here Stevie,
Sounds like your addressing your problem and taking action, your doing good things. SR will help along with your AA and therapy. For me, Day 81; I attend AA meetings regularly, have a sponsor, see a addictions counsellor and come here (SR). Combined they offer great support. SR has helped me in so many ways.
