First Step To Recovery..

Unread postby NicoleLin » Sun Jan 25, 2015 2:08 pm

Today is my first real day of being completely sober, but i'm scared to death. I have a boyfriend who smokes weed and drinks but he's "normal" if you catch my drift so I know I shouldn't be asking him to get sober with me... Or should I? I'm also scared because i'm always in and out... I feel like I don't belong here and I don't belong anywhere else... And it's almost like I don't know how to live a life happy PERIOD anymore.. I'm not happy when I'm sober and I'm not happy when I'm not sober... I feel lost anymore... I don't know what to do... Help.. Please...

are you going to meetings? I was scared at first too,you worry about so many thing and not what you should be.right now the only thing on your mind should be you and doing what it takes to stay sober.i had to make some changes in my life
at fist that scared me allot but right now I am sober and thankful that I did.i can tell you this,i am happier now with me and my life than I have been in a very long time.pray,pray everyday for strength and courage.sobriety for me is the greatest gift I could have ever wanted.the great thing about this gift is that it keeps on giving in so many ways.

I am 51 years old and can honestly say that I have been an alcoholic probably since I pick up my first drink. My personality changes to evil.I could go days and sometimes even months without a drink on my own. Once I put it in me there goes my personality. I have been fighting this disease for years. It is all about Surrender. At what level of disaster/the bottom you want to Surrender at is all up to that person. I wished I Surrendered 25 years ago. But one must keep on fighting.

Today is my first day of Surrendering. Just attended my very first meeting and was so very impressed with how friendly and supportive everyone was; I just made a calendar for meetings all week. I pray for success as this will be the hardest thing I've ever (ever) done. I too turn into Mr. Hyde and my wife says 'she's done' if I don't do something about is 'Day 1" :|
