Starting over

Feel like Iím doomed as soon as I feel good about myself there I go again
When will I learn Iím so tired of this crap
My whole life has been drug involved
I try and stay away but I find myself back over and over so day 2 sober wtf .. I donít even know why I do what I donít wanna do like it says in Romans .. nothing has went right for me
Lost many jobs many chances
Iím getting tired
Hope yíall having better days

Hi MTBarra - maybe it's worth looking at who you can reach out to next time and what stopped you doing that this time?

Sometimes recovery plans come down to basics - I want to drink...despite what my head is telling me, I know its a bad idea... who can I reach out to to talk me out of this.

Use the site more. Post here instead of drinking. Post once a day in the 24 hour thread to commit to another day sober. (24 Hour Recovery Connections Part 393)

You are not doomed and you can find a way out of self doom. You are worthy of treating yourself better. And as others have suggested try reaching out before you use. And day 2 is something! Keep coming back or going to real life support.

What have you done to get clean? What method? Program? Technique?

Or better yet, what haven't you done? Maybe it's time to consider it.

I learned here why I crave. It is no mystery.

It is science. We drinks have brain damage. We need booze to feel normal.

It takes years to normalize, the whole time relapse waits.

Folks regret relapse after years of sobriety.

I had to suffer and change my lifestyle. Exercise is my new drug.

The only way out is to suffer. I suffer daily.

Hope this helps.


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."

Hi MT. I'm very glad you are here. SR is a great place for advice and support and I urge you to do a lot of reading here regarding recovery plans. I never thought I could get and stay sober but with a solid plan and the help of the people here I have 30 months of sobriety and a life that while not perfect in every way is really good--and that's enough. Wishing you all the best, and 2 days is a great start.
