A lot of individuals nowadays have serious problems that a 4th phase stock cannot fix. or the conferences alone. To be able to cure any habit, it is always best to create sure someone is not just trying to get straigh and just needs time. The experts still don't understand that a psychological sickness or someone who has gone through a structural close relatives needs help outside the system. But with most, the legal courts and physicians just toss them into conferences as the greatest remedy.I believe for the psychological problems a lot of individuals have and deliver them to get the help they really need. Yes do not consume or use but simultaneously, get the help they need first. Many periods individuals in AA and NA try to perform Dr. or power their sobriety on them like their way is the only way. I went through this myself and aside from conferences, I had to get expert help or like many I would have consumed or used again. In the next few decades the healthcare community is operating towards a new therapy instead of just tossing individuals into a system.

Hello, Iv'e been sober for 2 years and change. I came to the crossroads after being hit by a freight train, a divorce, a few weeks in the big house, and a summer filled with self-inflicted injury.what has kept me sober has been the memory of how my brain chemistry is affected by alcohol: Namely instant asshole.
I have found a different addiction that is much more helpful Travel, and bicycling. thankfully I found a job that supports both, It's been hard to get to meetings, but, not hard to stay sober, even if the people I work with are a bunch of lushes. I get reminded of why i enjoy staying sober when I watch them get pulled out of a taxi cab and dumped outside the hotel. all the same, what I am writing to tell is this: find a helpful hobby, some thing you love to do and immerse yourself in it. Be it gardening, mountain climbing, scrapbooking, collecting stamps, rollerblading, or find something you always wanted to do, say play the guitar, piano, drums, or write a book. find what makes you happy and use it to keep you sober as well.
I hope this message helps all those struggling.

Hi Bobbi,
Glad you reached out to other who may be able to understand better than those who do not have this problem.
For me it's been helpful to reach out at least every other day online.
I don't feel 100% comfortable talking with my husband.
I think it really helps the situation to be honest to someone and to also reach out and help others.
You are able to reach out to your children and help be the best mom you can be today.
Stay in connection with people who help you and away from those who do not.

So why can't you get to meetings in person? There are so many at different times. I wish you luck.
