    Sensational lynn50!!

    Congratulations

    What got me sober was trying to get sober. Every time I lapsed, picked up, drank, I was thoroughly beaten. I thought at those times "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from those thoughts just a little, I thought "have another go!" It was a lot of little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here.

    A big encouragement to me is hearing from many of you that the journey is marked with failing, hopelessness at times, recover a little, encouragement and determination trickles back in and we go at it again having learned something. It is encouraging because after falling down enough I begin to wonder if I am unusually screwed up. I know better but this kind of support is very helpful. It's hard going it alone.

    OMG!!! That's Fantastic!! Good for you!! I hope you are proud of yourself for that!

    I hear you, it is hard going alone. People need support and encouragement from family and friends. When you are lacking family, as I am, I look to my friends. They help me in ways I think they cannot imagine.

    one day i would love to say the same it seems like the stress and kids and everything else just makes it hard to stay sober. I just want to take the edge off too. If you have any tips, im all open ears.
