    Shame sets in this morning. After being sober for over a year I thought it would be ok to have a drink. That drink happened in November and I have been drinking pretty much every day since then. I have been reading all my past posts to remind myself how wonderful being sober is. I wake up every morning with the mindset that I will not drink but by 3 o’clock I’m reaching for a glass of wine. I need to stop ! I have been successful before and this community was a huge help. I am committing to being here every day for inspiration and guidance. I fell back in to the booze trap and I am having a hard time getting out of it. Today I will not drink,. I am hoping by posting and making myself accountable it will give me what I need to be sober once again.

    • Hi @Gigi47 I’m very new to this. Only 5 days in to this, but I can definitely relate to those feelings of shame. So awesome that you are back here, heres to your new start, not only that but I bet your story and journey will help others. I too have thought Im gonna post everyday, especially in these early days to keep me on track and accountable. I’ll look out for your posts too. Be kind to yourself ❤

    • Hi @gigi47. There’s nothing to be ashamed of, it happens. I love this post from Mrs D’s blog:
      https://livingsober.org.nz/youre-not-a-bad-person-youre-addicted/. You’ve done this before and you can do it again with the tools you’ve used in the past. Congratulations for making the commitment today. You can do it!
