Ready to try again


I was sober from March till July of this year, I was proud I did it then thought what the heck and had a few beers. Mistake! Drinking like a fish ever since... New Years is around the corner and it is my time to finally stop again and for good!!
I wish I never started again

Glad you're back, BTLover!

Do you have a plan in place?

What are you going to do different this time?

I agree with Dee, you can have a week sober as you enter 2018.

I'm right there with you, I relapsed over Christmas and can't seem to get things straight again. I am bound and determined to make 2018 different! Let's do this together, I'm tired of being tired. This isn't fun anymore. hugs

I got sober in March too and stupidly picked up in September when I met up with an old buddy. I messed up again yesterday with one glass of wine during Christmas. Let’s do this together NOW and start the new year with some sober momentum.

I have never woken up sober and feeling good and wished that I had drank the night before.
