Day 20

It's a lovely feeling to have reached day 20

After a seemingly very long first week the day's are going in much faster. There's an endless amount to do in sobriety which i'm very grateful for.

Have a great day y'all

Excellent work Someday and the numbers will keep climbing and all you need to do is do nothing. In theory being sober is easy, it's the natural state.

Here's to the day 21 and 22 and a sober weekend. But unless you're American and not from Northern Ireland I'm not allowing you to sign off with "Y'all"

Thanks ALBdrunk,

Hahaha yeah I must have picked that up from the online meetings and my sponsor is American.

Have a great day mates

Someday - congratulations on your 20 days! I loved your upbeat post.
Things will continue to get better - no more foggy, fuzzy, or numb for us.

20 days is amazing SomeDay!!! So much healing. Isn't life so much more simple? No more planning to drink, be drunk, passed out or hung over. That was exhausting. Wishing you peace and health.

It really is much more simple and the huge relief that comes with not having to plan ahead for more poison and the knowledge of the inevitable hell on earth that will ensue. Thanks for all the kind words of support everyone it means a lot.

I got sober in 1983. You could hit at least a half-dozen church basements if you threw a rock in any direction in my neighborhood. AA was pretty much it back then, and it worked well for me.

My first meeting was on April 7th of that year. I talked to a woman I knew in AA beforehand, and she recommended I start with a beginners' meeting.

The person facilitating the meeting asked for new people to raise their hands and say how many days or weeks they were sober. Eight days, four, seven, ten...the woman sitting next to me raised her hand, identified herself, and said "Today is eighteen days." I thought to myself that she was either lying or taking something that made it either dangerous or impossible for her to drink. Or maybe just confused.

I couldn't take in what to me was an enormous amount of time without a drink.

Every moment we remain sober we live a better life.
