In 2013, I found sobriety and it was lovely...until it wasn’t. I was a 40 yo mother of twin girls and I got sober. At around 43 I picked up again and have been battling to get back to that lovely place every since. As of today, I have 11 days toward that goal under my belt and never want to stray from my sober path again.
Tomorrow is day 12 and my second sober weekend, first one flying solo. When I drink, it’s always alone. No one to judge me. My sober plans to make it through to day 14 includes; gardening, painting, pup to the vet and some exercise to replenish those endorphins. I have been to this place, what feels like, a million times but am going in again with a plan and determination. Hope everyone has a serene and sober weekend!! 🧘🏻♂️
Stay strong, stick with your plan, and keep playing it forward when/if necessary. You’re a few days ahead of me and I totally know what you mean by being there so many times before and drinking alone. Check in often. You’ve got this!
@mari135 I may be one here a lot this weekend. I wish I had found this site SO long ago, it’s wonderful! No one understands an addict like an addict and it’s comforting to see others win their battles.
