    Day 433

    Today’s thought from my big comfy chair: “you’re here for a reason”

    I am here in this cyberspace for many reasons.
    To get support in my sobriety
    To connect with people
    To realize I am not alone in this struggle
    To help others on this path
    To support people when they stumble
    To celebrate members when the succeed
    To learn more about myself, my strengths and weaknesses
    To give myself options, AF drinks, socialising sober, getting through the witching hour
    To be inspired

    If you are here it is because you are struggling with alcohol, whether it is day 1 or 433. If you are like me you just lurked for a month before you posted anything. I did’t set up my profile until I had about 9 months AF. It was about that time I realised I could really do this sober thing and I could share how I felt and what I had learned. Everything I have achieved would not be possible without this site and the community built up around it.
    There are a lot of new members joining and I hope you stick with it no matter how many day ones it takes, even if you stumble after day 7 get back on the path, you are 7 days smarter and know that it is possible!
    My hope for everyone is that you get your life back and realize that we are all on this planet for a reason and once you are sober that reason becomes much clearer.
