love!

I am loving this forum! I have been reading for a couple of days and have been chewing on these posts like a kid in a candy store. I take a multi-faceted approach to recovery and it is so refreshing to read others that think outside of the box and discuss/challenge ideas so freely. Very cool stuff...thanks

peace,
SD

I love it too. I also try to chew on them, if I swallow them whole I might choke. I'm glad you found us and are joining in.

Welcome aboard

Nothing wrong with finding your own path to sobriety! I'm a free thinking soul from a long way back who doesn't have a herd mentality...but I was ready to bail from my self directed recovery and join the first herd that lumbered past if I was seriously thinking about drinking again!!!

Luckily, with the help of SR, I managed to recently get past the one year sober mark. You can too, if you want to.

Welcome to the secular side of SoberRecovery soberlicious.

Secular addiction treatments are very tasty and they don't give me indigestion like other recovery methods do.

And here I thought you were a glassy eyed newcomer to all things recovery. I bow down in humbleness to your many years of clean living

I recently found this forum and it follows the curve that seems to come with alternative recovery programs. The enlightened, healthy, happy and knowledgeable curve.
Almost two years sober happily reading, learning, talking with God, meditating, eating healthfully and sometimes not, and the list goes on. There is so much time for good life when you stop dying.

LOL ! :-)

It should be noted, though, that many on the "secular" recovery forum are not necessarily atheist or lacking in religious affiliation.

Indeed! My own path is the only path that has worked for me. While SMART Recovery has been an important part of that path, it alone would not have kept me sober if I didn't taylor my approach to fit my own needs.

Lol...I have no idea who said it but you are right

Come to think of it, when I look back, I'm not 100% certain how I stopped.

Yes it's been rumored by Plato that Socrates said that, but I didn't hear him.
