11 Days Sober.

Posted: September 19, 2019, 1:32 PM
I drank everyday for the last ten years. It started with a glass of wine a night and grew into downing two bottles everyday from 5-11 at night. I never thought I could go one day without drinking, but now I've been sober 11 days. I feel alone. I really need someone to talk with that understands.

search youtube - keep watching videos of recovery stories - there are many - someone I watched recently stated that loneliness is the hardest part of recovery. need to learn to be able to sit alone with yourself. learning to do something with the empty space, empty time uncomfortable

Google AA in your area and go to a meeting. Online recovery is great but no chat room is better than face to face support. Get a sponsor, work the steps. Don't drink.

Laugh because it shows people that you have what they want and what they need: a hope in things unseen, a peace that passes understanding, and a God of miracles who also has a great sense of humor.
