Still sober........woo hoo😃

Evening everyone 😊.
hope everyone is doing ok and coping with all the restrictions that we have in place, it's been tough for a lot of people, much love if your suffering 💖
so it's been nearly 6mths now since my last drama lol,
everything is going really well. I thought I'd check in to say hi as I very rarely come on here anymore. I'm just doing my thing plugging away at life. I still have the odd little voice in my , but it's so quiet these days.
of course I have bad days, who doesn't. That's life. I've just learnt that I don't need to get smashed at every set back anymore.
I never thought I'd get to where I am now, but here I am. Living life,loving life.
I just want to say to all the people starting out, or the people starting again. You can get through it, just be kind to yourself.
​​​​​​anyway much love to any one that's struggling, your not alone. Keep going, you will get there in time 💖
Doris xxxx

I'm so happy for you Doris! Nice work.

I'm pushing 2 months sober myself. I have good days and bad. I'm hoping to be where you are at 6 months.

All the best to you.

2 months will soon turn into 6 months 😃 that's brilliant well done mamatebo, just one foot in front of the other. Keep pushing forward, I can't believe how calm my life has become. No hangovers, no shame, no apologies for being an idiot, no trail of destruction to clean up.
yep I'm not EVER going back to that x

Inspirational, Doris.

Nearly 5 months for me and have found that even when it's crap, sober is so much better.

Congratulations on 6 mighty months! Plugging along with you.

Hey, I sold myself short. I'm nearly 6 months, not five. Not sacrificing one minute.

Hi people,
I'm a newbie here so don't really know if this is the right way to drop in a hello to everyone. I do apologize if it's the wrong route 🙂
I've been sober for the past five months and running on the sixth. Each day has its pros and cons, but in a nutshell, it's any day better than being a "pro that cons" 🙃
​​​​​​Here to hear, share and discuss anything that helps staying sober.
BTW! Congratulations Doris, along with the rest of the gang on being "still sober" 😊
