I'm here


So I've found Sober Recovery - this thread seems as good a place as any to gently nudge my way into the circle.

In terms of where I am, I'd say "getting sober" is a decent description of where I am along the line. I've not used alcohol in just over 4 months.
How did I get here? A choice. My relationship with alcohol turned sour a few years back, like many stories I've read so far on these boards, I couldn't break away from it. I was led to one simple choice, my life with or without alcohol. There couldn't be any grey area, it was all or nothing.

So I'm here, thankfully. I'm hoping I can draw inspiration, insight and at times strength from what others like myself are dealing with. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you.

All the best, Carl.

It's wonderful to have you here, Carl. I'm so glad you made that choice 4 months ago - to get free & no longer live dangerously. Welcome.
