Counseling...hmmm


I've been in counseling for several weeks now. I've been sober for 6 days. The sessions sometimes feel like I'm being force fed large chuncks of information I can't swallow, not to mention can't digest. So, I proceded to wash it down with my favorite wine. I think most of the dark side is out and the well of demons in my past is 'empty'. It definately makes it easier 'not' to want a drink. I think maybe I have found that place they call "bottom" and hopefully won't have any more shocking information from my past rear up and batter me all over again. It is amazing the details of your life you can 'choose' not to remember, or believe. The alcohol makes it easy to stay in that rut. I've come to the surface and have had a nice clean breath of fresh air. I've missed talking to everyone here. I'm praying and trying so hard this time to stick around and rebuild my faith and strength with a great group of people who have helped me alot along the way. It was actually my times of sobriety and talks here that helped me get help. I'm so greatful I made that decision.
Thanks to everyone
Georgia

Hi Georgia,

Keep talking to us on here and hang in there. The things that are rough today will not always be that way.

SR is a good place to hang out. I know for me, this place has saved me many times from doing something that I would regret.

Stick around!

love,
Cheryl

Good for you!

nice to see you again Georgia!

I suggest your next forward move is to a F2F support group.
AA has helped me to stay sober
and enjoy it!

Thanks Cheryl and Carol. I appreciate the welcome back and I'm so glad to be here. I'm gonna make it thru this weekend and muster up the strength to go to that meeting on Monday. By Monday will have been my longest sober time in over 2 years.

Georgia,

I'll keep you in my prayers! You will be glad that you went to the meeting. I was scared my first time, but after I went, I felt so much better. Everyone was so nice and understanding and I felt at home for the very first time.

I know you can do this. I'm here for you and if you ever need someone to listen, PM me anytime.

Stick around SR and feel the warmth and joy!

Love,
Cheryl
