Re: Nearly 5 weeks sober and struggling

Take a step back and relax. Find a meeting and go to it. I was 6 months sober and the same thing happened to me and I didn't follow that advice. Been struggling ever since, and that's been 3 months.

When I first came into the program I did everything that people told me to do, 90 for 90, got a sponsor, starting working the steps, attended counseling sessions weekly.
