Sober for 2 years today, best I have ever feLt since i was 14 i continue to grow learn and fight for myself daily. I take classes to become better i inspire others and support them as much as possible. I love life and myself and will never go back to that life. If i can do it so can all of you and if yea slip get back up it can take more than once to get it right. I have been sober for 6 years then relapsed but this is only time I've been sober from all narcotics alcohol and Rx i have no narcotics or medicine that is not holistic. I'm proud of myself. 

Embarrassed and scared

After separating a year ago from my ex alcohol has become my passion. I hate it and I love it. I have other interests like tennis and hanging out with my kids. However, when I am alone I seek refuge in alcohol. I do and say things I wouldn’t normally do. I have a hard time being alone and so I go out and party instead of staying home to relax. It‘s like a secret life. As a matter of fact it must stay a secret and that is hard. I have had phases like this in my life where I freak out and ignore my pain through drinking. Then I recover for a while and get myself back together. Now I think after embarrassing myself one too many times, I should stop. I do enjoy sobriety too. It is nice to know that I’m not drinking that day, and that I don’t have to worry about going too far with my bad lifestyle choices that tend to occur, with a beverage in hand. God it’s hard, but it must stop. I can’t waste another day. 

Dear worst hangover

don’t worry about the future and dread being sober the rest of your life!

focus on the One Day at a Time and that will make a difference, even one minute at a time if it helps!

1 day sober

the start of a better life.

Good Morning

Checking in for the first time, here. ive been on and off the wagon all summer. Thought I’d give this app a try and see if I can keep from falling off. 

@ Are there any secular...

Go to meetings ...God is specifically defind for purposes of AA...It's a Higher Power of your own understanding...God can be the Group, the 12 steps, good values, etc. It can be a combination of these things. It's whatever "restores you to sanity."  Many atheists thrive at AA meetings. 

Are there any secular A.A. meetings

hello. I am interested I going to an A.A. support group but I consider myself an athiest. ive heard of secular A.A. meetings out there but have not had any luck finding them. I live in St. Petersburg Florida. Anyone had luck with finding secular A.A. meetings ? 

Thank you all

Day 1 again

Here I am again. I am getting so tired of this cycle, but I can’t just give up. A thousand times I’ve fallen and a thousand times I’ve gotten back up. I just don’t know how many more times I can do this. I’ve been to rehabs, detox,AA, tried on my own, therapy, books classes I feel like I have tried everything. Today I will pray and hope for the best. May peace be with us all.
