Congrats on your success.
After about 3 years of using SR i am definitely seeing patterns of success and failure.
The successful folks, like you, say similar things. The relapsed ones have their own similar dialog.
For me sobriety is a daily commitment and a feeling of well being and success each morning.
Thinking about why i drank is always the same. A lack of education and physical and mental addiction.
Suffering through the craves, for every occasion, is now what i call being a grown up. I have out grown booze.
Since quitting being a drunk, my energy level and confidence are through the roof.
Total life game changer.
Thanks to SR. Without this site....i was a deadman walking.
When I crave I think of the next day after effects:
high blood pressure, sleep issues, strength loss, immune system compromise (sick).
BpSSS. My mantra.
Studied "alcohol kindling" and "alcohol PAWS."
