Re: Rock Bottom?

Hi, Laura Congratulations on 6 days!!! Keep it up :) I am quite new to my sobriety at 56 days. Not sure I can offer as much as much support as some of the other "veterans" here. You certainly have a lot going on and to think about. I view it as a big positive that you have a friend with 2 years sobr...

Re: Hi, I'm Joe

I wont disregard your post, positrac. I appreciate the time you took to reply. However, in my case in regard to the things you stated I just do not totally agree. I can see that perhaps for some they would apply. SpiritFlower, nope, not chasing a girl LOL But she does seem nice, in common being from...

Re: Hi, I'm Joe

I am not looking to run off just to change people, places things or escape problems. I am not looking to "runaway" from anything. I have been thinking about it since last August. For a few reasons; - My bro's property and house are paid off. Live rent free. - He is 14 years older than me, 74. Where ...

Re: Will I ever feel excited again?

Congrats on 6 months. That is a nice accomplishment. I would be excited about that. I only have 32 days. I guess for me... I look forward to all the experiences in life, things I used to do or new experiences, sober. I am going to see Eric Clapton in September. I look forward to seeing a concert wit...

I was planning to join but upon reading this post felt to reply so joined immediately. Firstly, by no means am I giving advice. Just sharing my experience and of course ever...
