Where I am coming from

Hi, as I am sitting here drinking a beer at 7am after calling in to work I figured I would go ahead and post.

I spent the last 3 months sober until finally the desire to get a buzz got the best of me. So here I am risking my life with alcohol again. Anyways, tomorrow will be day 1 again. I'll see if I can make it a little longer than 3 months this time.

On the bright side I didn't let myself get to far back into my drinking habit this time and hopefully can get back on my feet again relatively easy.

I look forward to reading/writing in the forums some more as I begin my recovery again.

Welcome to the SR forums, it's a great place for support, advice and just good conversation. I hope to see you around. Do you participate in any kind of recovery program, secular or 12-step. Just wondering. I personally have a jumble of different things I use to help myself, a major one being posting here. Personally I find it helpful NOT to count days. I just try to stay clean today, it's really the only day that matters. Guess that's one I picked up from the 12-step folks!! It works for me though. Take care.

Been a while since I have posted here. As you might have guest my last attempt to quit drinking was a failure....again, heh.

Anywho, I have 2 sober days under my belt right now and feel pretty good about it. I have the right frame of mind this time. That is to say, I am seriously pissed off right now about how I have let alcohol control me. I am ready to get my life back.

I even managed to get a hold of a bottle of campral to maybe make things a little easier. Honestly though, I feel that if I can just keep the attitude I have right now I am gonna make it quite a while this time.

Way to go on 2 days clean Easy Tiger!

In my book attitude WAS the compelling force that got sober and IS keeping me sober today. I guess I don’t buy into all that jazz about how a person can’t get sober unless they have a HP or some other mysterious being/thingy, whatever, helping them.

What will also help is being proactive in your harmful addiction dependency recovery plan (you do have a plan?). Plus, being around supportive others that appreciate and respect your unique needs for recovery, whatever life affirming plan of action you have is indispensable.
