Back to recovery for my second time.

Hi everyone,
My story 20 years ago got sober from drugs and alcohol. Spent about 5 years in AA (and yeah it works) Life got busy, I got confident and well Ive spent the last 5 plus years out there drinking. Got sick and tired of being sick and tired and started 3 weeks ago in an outpatient treatment and havent yet but need to get back in to AA. Currently sober since July 4th. Weirdly. lol. Which is the longest ive put together that I know of in many years. Thanks for having me back

Welcome back. I have done the same thing, gone back and tried it again after a period of long sobriety. It never works.
