I am on day 2, but I think I would be best served by joining the September group. I will be the first to toss in my hat.

Want to welcome those seeking sobriety. I found my way to Sober Recovery in September 2010 after 35 years of daily drinking with the last 10 years of it knowing I should quit and not being able to. But in 2010 I had a moment of clarity (after a night of yet-again uncontrollable drinking) and said that was it.

I committed to sobriety, made the changes I needed to support a sober lifestyle, and learned how to cope with life without the crutch of alcohol. Wasn't easy, but haven't had a drink since Sept 10th of 2010. I live and love a sober life.

Life has its challenges; recovery has allowed me to face them. My alcohol and drug free life has been a blessing. I wish each of you the same.

Well a new month and hopefully a new start, I'm on day 2 after a 4day binge after a month dry, did well in that month outwardly, had my girls for 2weeks and had a great time with them, but I only got to one AA meeting in that month and drank after I took them back to their mum's.

My sponsor said on the day before I drank that he couldn't sponsor me anymore as he's too ill which was fair enough but saw this as yet another rejection. Start a college course tomorrow which I missed the induction day for last Wednesday and feel anxious about facing that but glad I managed to stop yesterday now to hopefully give myself a good start.

There is nothing left in drinking for me, I know that only too well but it's the stuff I turn too to relieve, rejection, doubt and anxiety. I'm 38 now and know I need to start living as I can't function anymore with that poison inside me...

Dearest 1step, my friend, so happy to see you. s

As it happens, I started a college course last week and also missed the first day, and yes, it is nervy for sure. But it will be alright....I am going to catch up with the classwork today through Blackboard...can you do the same? s

I am so sorry about your sponsor's ill health, but I wouldn't take it as a rejection love....it is honest and caring to let a sponsee know that you are unable to be there for them I think. s

You will find another sponsor.....and hey, talk to us.....bet this is a fantastic class. s

WELCOME to all of you!
