Hello everyone!

It's me again Wishing. I'm now at day 66 without a drop. I've thought about all of you and figured it's time for me to post again.

Love,
Wishing

I actually haven't been on this site for a while, but did check in this morning, more family support I'm on, and just thought I'd check in, so glad your still going well often use to think how you where, I tended to step back on this site as I felt it consumed me, but lovely to hear when there is success stories, keep it up

Sad eyes ty so much!

This group really did help me when I went 260 and some days and then relapsed because I didnt have the right copying mechanisms in place.

I'm happy to say I have a decent number back behind me of 71 today

Love,

Wishing

Congratulations.
It became apparent to me after a few months of not drinking, that I needed something to replace the power that alcohol and outside issues gave me. A power greater than myself alone.
At first, it was an individual on this board (even though I went to AA meetings daily), and then it was several people on this board as well as those in the group I attended. I would ask questions to verify if what was being said in meetings was true... And I didn't drink in between meetings.
Eventually (6 months) I found someone who would walk me through the steps--a sponsor of sorts--and show me how to work the Steps. And I didn't drink.
After finishing the steps I shared my experience (albeit very little) with people here. And I continued to go to meetings. And I didn't drink. And then I had folks start asking me to sponsor them and walk them through the steps the same way my sponsor had shown me. And I continued to go to meetings. And I didn't drink. And I came here. Everyday.
In about an hour I will go to my Home Group in AA and present my Experience, Strength, and Hope in a Speaker Meeting. And I won't drink.
I've found a relationship with God, not a religion, and I've learned to face life on life's terms while staying sober. And I share with others, work with others, and carry the message that was first carried to me on this very board and in the rooms of AA.
And I haven't found it necessary to drink for over twelve years....
Hang around. Ask questions. Find a Face-to-Face meeting. Ask questions. Look for a sponsor.
And don't drink between meetings. More will be revealed.
Hello, Pirate... ;) And all those whom I've never seen who've helped me stay sober all this time.
Praise God.

Keep doing what's working. For me, and I can only tell you what worked for me, coming here regularly removed the loneliness and separating I felt when I started changing playgrounds and playpals.
Especially now, during some turbulent times, it's nice to know that folks are staying sober. The principles of staying sober do not change regardless the circumstances, so it's important to develop simple new habits early.
Keep on keeping on, and stick with the winners!

Hi,

I hope everyone is doing well and being safe.
I thought about this group just nowand wanted to report that I'm doing good . I'm at 136 days since my last drink and over 30lbs lost!!

It is 1 day at a time and it's not easy but it is well worth it !!

Im starting to see positive physical results and that keeps me going . I'm also glad I stopped before Christmas and this pandemic....

I was very bad with my daily and nightly drinking . It's a life long disease for me and i know I cant have it again.

Not even 1 drink

Love,

Wishing
