Scared

I am not exactly sure why posting on an anonymous site scares the crap out of me but here i am. Day one. I will not drink today. If anyone is listening out there. I just feel the need to say it officially.

Ha,,, I know what you mean about posting.
But figure, I doubt anyone knows the real "Midnight Rider"

But seriously ..
Congrats on being sober and making it Day 1.

Welcome PleaseListen. You took the first step. Read through the threads. You'll find lots of wisdom from those with long term sobriety or perhaps from folks struggling just like you. It's a great place to be.

I think it's normal to feel scared when you put yourself out there and admit you need support. We are family here and we do understand how hard this is.

Thank you to everyone. It is comforting to know someone is out there listening. I have a great people around me but none that seem to understand this struggle. I think i have done too good of a job hiding this side of myself from most and those closest to me just don't go there even though i can tell they are concerned. I am glad i posted. Goodnight all.

I'm so glad you posted, PL. I had no one to talk to until I came here - my family & friends were all social drinkers. This is the best place ever to get support & encouragement.

I also had more day 1's than I could count. Joining SR and reading helped. Posting iced it. I'm 21 days and loving it. You can do it too.

I read the messages here for such a long time without posting, I also had a lot of day ones during those times. I started posting and have found this site an invaluable part of my recovery. I have found people I can laugh, cry and vent with who get what it is to struggle with alcohol without judgement.

I highly recommend joining the February class group when you feel ready, having a smaller group within this big site also has been a huge help to me.
