Here we go again…day 1.

Yup, here I go again. But THIS time, I’m really going to do it. How do I know that? I don’t know how I know, I just know that I know. There is something different about that. I’ve committed myself to 30 days starting today. If I do the 30 days — which I am certain that I will — then I will continue FOREVER. I’ve told my friends, who are all chiefly drinking friends (the main thing we share in common anyway) that I’m doing this 30 day thing and that I have to have their support. In fact I told them that if I don’t do this 30 days that I’m going to quit my job and go into rehab and then a half-way house and disappear. Yes, I’m open to rehab, finally, if that’s what it takes to get and keep me sober. I don’t think I’ll end up there — but I am willing to do it now if I need to.

So here we go. I’m going to do whatever it takes to get and stay sober. A.A. meetings — anything and everything to do this, by God’s grace. I choose LIFE! See you there!

  1. How are you doing? I know you don’t want to try moderation and I get that but if you need support during a 30 day abstinence there are always several people trying for a 30 day abs period or longer at Moderation Management. There are also many of us who have chosen to extend that 30 days to a lifetime. If you need 24/7 online support, whether you’re absing or moderating, we’re there. I’m going to be leading the MM abs chat tomorrow night, if you want to join in, you don’t have to participate, you can just sit in the corner if you want and listen.

  2. Keep choosing LIFE every day and you’ll finally find out what it is to be alive, really alive. It’s not always easy, but it does get easier, and life is so much easier without drinking. You’ve got to experience to believe it. My DH still drinks heavily, and I witness on a daily basis how hard his life is compared to mine. It’s hard enough, man, why would you choose to make it harder.
