Hello everyone! Has anyone watched or read any books that have been super motivating or interesting based on lifestyle changes or sobriety? Anything even totally different but just looking for some moving and great stories to watch or read lately. Thanks

I don't but I feel like sharing something I'm in the process of writing an autobiography its called lifestyle of the drunk named Shanus 🤣 .
Every morning I rip out the page from the day before and start fresh ,I remember what was written yesterday but it doesn't determine what happens today. Everyday is a chance to re write your life .
Iam the author of my own life I am the pen that God uses to express itself on the paper which is life .
Holy shit I think I've had to many coffee's 🤯🤣

Haha, that is awesome! Thanks for sharing that with me! :)
I hear coffee is a lifesaver in sobriety!! Everyday is a chance to re write your life for sure and I am loving every morning waking up hangover free and much more. How long have you been AF for again Aussiedrunk?

I never used to drink coffee because it made me anxious now it just makes my belly nice and warm . I haven't woke up in jail and not remembered what I did the night before drinking to much coffee , so I say bring it on 😁
Just a little over 5 years this time ,I didn't drink for 5years from 25 -30 but I had little sobriety or peace of mind , I was what is commonly referred to as a dry drunk. It wasn't a pleasant experience living with all the symptoms of alcoholism without alcohol to treat it . I was suicidal and homicidal swinging between hating myself and then blaming my misery on others .
This time I follow suggestions and practice spiritual principles and I'm happy to report this is the best life I could of imagined apart from all these other humans getting in my way 🤣. Do what works for you to stay sober today ,be yourself and don't let others dim your spark .

I learned a bit about how my brain 🧠 works listening to "habits of a happy brain" by Loretta graziano breuning. also "learned hopefullness" by Dan tomasulo helped me understand a few things, like "thinking traps", repetitive negative thoughts, also called stinking thinking.

I love Russell Brand because he has done so much to raise awareness about addiction in the UK and elsewhere including lobbying government.
Here he is on 19th anniversary - he has become very spiritual - his book is called Recovery (freedom from our addictions)

Thanks so much Cerulea59. I know Russel Brand has spoken a lot about addiction and his life but I have never actually had a listen yet or looked into anything he has done for addiction. I guess before I thought I had a problem I wasn’t really too interested. Here I am more then ever interested in sobriety and living a completely different lifestyle.
I’m going to look at his book right now

My Name is Bill W. a good movie. Old movie by Michael Keaton “Clean and Sober.” Also, an outlier but I enjoyed it- “Requiem for a Dream” Enjoy your new page (life)!
