Day 15 sober and Newbie

Been browsing the forums for a while, even before I gave up alcohol. Iíd had enough of drinking for a very long time but could never quit the habit. Always found an excuse to drink ( my poison is wine in the evenings. Not optimistic enough yet to say that in past tense...).
But after a heavy weekend of finishing off a litre bottle of rum when making mohitos ( all for myself...) and being terribly sick and ill the next day, I decided enough was enough. And thatís when I stopped.
Itís not been easy but my personal motto to keep me going is ( as I also suffer chronic depression) -if I drink tonight Iím guaranteed a bad day tomorrow. If I donít drink, tomorrow Ďcouldí be a bad day but also Ďcouldí be a good day. And Iím willing to take the chance of not drinking in hope of more good days ahead Iím telling you!

I wonít spill my story or my struggles but guess now that Iíve done this far, it might be handy to contribute/ engage with the group a bit as it might do me some good.

Anyway, have a good day!
