There's Still A Seat For Me...


I was very active on this forum a few years ago when I was really giving my sobriety a go. Well the last three years have been absolute torture. I'm not even sure where to begin...
  • Hospitalized for pancreatitis
  • Multiple visits to ER for medical detox
  • Six month inpatient rehab where I got kicked out for drinking
  • 60-day inpatient rehab completed successfully
  • Drank again on day 89
  • Ten days sober today

I absolutely HATE this disease. I have been doing a lot of self reflecting and sometimes I think back to before I was actively drinking and want to be that person again (knowing what I know now).

I say all of that to say, I'm back and I'm glad that there's always a place for me here. I have always felt the support and compassion from all of you.

Very glad you are back here, and made it through all of that. I can relate to some of those specific consequences of my drinking.

Look forward to getting to know you.

Welcome back! I joined this site in 2012, and had my last drink12- 31-15, it has been one of my greatest supports. You should join the January 2019 class, and also the 24 hour recovery thread, both will be great supports.
