    Day 1 for me too @Kaydee. Ive relasped after a relationship breakup. Im so sad and confused.

    • Oh @annie. I’m sorry to hear that you are sad. As you know tho, booze won’t fix anything. For me, I just wake up feeling more annoyed with myself. I do love the feeling of having control of at least something. The choice to not drink is mine. I just have to remember to be stronger and not be swayed by others.

    good for you @robynb. I often wonder about going to church, then I remember how I dont want to get hooked up with a new bunch of people who Im sure will try their dammdest to have me see things their way!

    • There were some nice pieces, but overall I didn’t agree with the language. I feel spiritually moved when I read a good book, or hear a great piece of music, or any number of ways all of the time. I did not feeling in that church. But I will likely try others. Will see. I need more social activity, but with more like minded people I think.

    I hear ya @fridaymay92014. I too worry about my adult kids and want to fix every little problem for them! Any emotional hiccup and I want to drink. Does that ever go away? Im over myself and all my shortcomings!!

    i am also doing the 12 steps of the AA programme. Got to step 9 and relasped so now my sponser says I am back at step 1. Often i go to meetings and feel such a failure and they are all up there on the pedestal –doing it! I have been in and out of AA for about 17 years. Any advice @Lee?

    • Lee@ replied 1 month ago

      @Annie there is no such thing as failure here. Are you not sober now? Every second that you are counts as a big win. Put yourself on a pedestal, please! I too have been in and out of AA for a long time but would only stay sober for X amount of time because I would choose to drink again and then blame whatever or whoever for it.

        @Annie yes I do go to meetings and I have a sponsor, same one for 5 years. I don’t go everyday but i find it very helpful. It really didn’t work for me until I decided that I’d had enough and that drinking was ruining my life. You get from it what you put into it, like everything else. I utilize every sober resource that I can find that is to my liking.
