Class of Feb 2016 just dropping by to welcome the June class on their life-changing choice of sobriety. It's hard work, but it's infinitely worth it!

That;s so true finallytime. Every morning I wake up sober I feel relief. Especially on a Saturday morning.

What's everyone doing today? I've done some painting and household stuff. Think I'll read this afternoon. Hope everyone has a good day/night wherever in the world you are.

Dee74 06-01-2019 03:05 AM

Congrats on your week RAL :)

Have a good day Finallytime and everyone waking up now :)

Weíve got this day at a time new life is the goal

DJ1 06-01-2019 05:36 AM

Waking up here in Florida day 2 last night was a rough one not much sleep sweats were so bad & racing heart usual paranoia
I have had lots of first days but this is definitely my worst bout of withdrawals :( finally got to sleep at 5 woke at 8 feeling exhausted but on to day 2 reading all up on kindling. Now even more I have to concur this beast once & for all !!
Happy sober days ahead this time before I started I made a list of all the things to do daily & change what I normally would do at drinking time
Off to start my list have a great day all

Hello everyone. I have been on and off of SR, and ready to hop back in with the June class. I have actually cut way back on my drinking, and had 24 days sober in May. But, I am only fooling myself by dancing on a slippery slope. I want and need to abstain completely.

Look forward to the mutual support of this class.

Hi Erratic we know the drill fall down get back up this time lets stay on the sober bus good luck we can do this we have to :)

Sober81 06-01-2019 07:36 AM

Hi guys & gals, just a quick check in.
I'm on Day 134 :) Doing very well too! I've really impressed myself and my friends, family & Dr.
Health has improved massively and waking up day after day without a hang over is SO worth it.

I hope everyone here is doing well.
To those struggling hang in there, it does get easier with time. If you have a relapse the most important thing is to not mentally beat yourself up. Pick yourself up,, dust yourself off and give it another shot.
I must of had at least 20 false starts before I got any true traction with my path of sobriety.

Sober81 06-01-2019 08:33 AM

Oh I almost forgot too. Over this time my Wife and I have saved over $3334 by not drinking! How cool is that/
Make sure you enjoy the weekend everybody..

BTW I tried to edit my original post. However it seems we can no longer edit our posts? Or am I missing something?

Jumper13 06-01-2019 12:39 PM

Count me in. It's day 1 (again) and I need some accountability.

Calitano 06-01-2019 02:20 PM

Day 1 (again) for me too.
I stopped working my plan, getting back here is part of the new one.

sydneyman 06-01-2019 02:39 PM

Day 205,,this is possible. Just giving you guys some hope. The saying that it gets better still rings true for every week that goes by. Don't stop.
Hard work, 100% commitment , determination and perseverance is the key. Your whole life has to change not just removing the alcohol. Life is a lot different on this side.

Dee74 06-01-2019 03:05 PM

Welcome boracraze calitano and Jumper :)

Good to see you Sydneyman and you too Sober 81 - editings still the same as far as I know - you get 15 minutes.

I woke up early, coffee, yoga, cardio. Washed my car, ate a healthy lunch, then napped for a few hours. At day 62, the exhaustion has returned. I think the recent stress has left me without much reason to be awake and has drained my energy. I feel lost without work. Itís not a place Iím comfortable with, especially when staying sober. Tonight some shrimp n pasta, maybe an old scary movie and back to bed. Sleeping my way through this white knuckle time.
