Re: Getting sober while in a relationship

Hi ShirlyGirly, WELCOME TO e-aa. The 2nd best decision I made was coming here, the 1st was to not drink, just for today. It's now 52 days-one day at a time. I come here each and every morning and have a cup of coffee and get feuled up for the day. I gain strength and hope that I too can do this. The...

Re: confused

Hi & welcome. it seems I have some of the symptoms, but not all. I thought I was all kinds of things BUT alcoholic. Here are a few things they passed on to me: A fellow asked me if I ever wondered if my skin was green. I thought the question ridiculous. He then said "We don't wonder about things th...

40 Days. What I have learned

This Daily Reflection was posted on July 15 but it was from July 1st. I feel like I was supposed to read this on July 15 and every day since. Maybe I wasn't ready to hear this on July 1st. (Thank you Paige) In the first couple of weeks I was so overwhelmed, I wasn't at all sure what I should be doin...

Re: Feeling hopeless

I'm 54 and I've drank most of my life. I've told myself over and over again I need to stop doing that or I'll kill someone else or myself or get arrested for DUI. It finally happened. I wrecked my car after a day of drinking. I thank God it was just me. I wasn't hurt but my car was totalled and I s...

Re: Day 32. Struggling to feel normal

Good deal, Hanna! I so glad you got up and got on with living the day. Idle hands on days like make it awfully tempting to go back to where we were. I keep in my mind something that was shared to you earlier, " What good will come if I have a drink?" This too, shall pass and the good days will begi...

Re: Day 32. Struggling to feel normal

This is a community so willing to share what worked for them! Invariably, I find what works for me as well. AWESOME! That's why I keep coming back. Good things happened yesterday after admitting I was uncomfortable. I was uncomfortable because I was questioning my sobriety. Pushing forward and don'...

Re: Day 32. Struggling to feel normal

Taking the Steps takes care of that and gives us "new hope" and even actual *experience* such as we might have never before even imagined ... "When we look back, we realize that the things which came to us when we put ourselves in God's hands were better than anything we could have planned. Follow ...

Day 32. Struggling to feel normal

Day 32 and I know I never want to drink again, one day at a time. But I am struggling to feel comfortable, I remember when just being at home was something I looked forward to. I could always find so many things to do. Now I feel like I'm forcing myself to do the things I used to love. My family is ...

Home cleaning, wow it's been a long time since I moved furniture and really cleaned. It feels good to be active and accomplish something.
