Not been on in a while (150 days sober)

I just wanted to stop by to offer a few words of encouragement to those who are beginning their sober journey. Iím working on recovery and I can tell you that it can and does get better as time goes on: Iím in an immeasurably better place than I was back in January and my health ó mental and physical ó continue to improve. Iím still occasionally subject to what Iím pretty certain are episodes of PAWS (your poor neurotransmitters need to time to return to baseline as a recovering alcoholic, just like the rest of you), but these are growing less intense and in the times in between I can see just how good sobriety can be. Day to day, Iím more productive, more patient and a hell of a lot less self-absorbed and self-pitying than I was when I was drinking. Itís about time, too.

Do NOT give up! Give yourself the gift of sobriety. Best to you all.

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.

Good to hear from you.

Six months was a big turning point for me, so was 8-9 months. Keep going!
