Addiction & Sobriety

221 members
Are you battling an addiction? Are you currently in recovery? You’re not alone. ♥️

For those that were able to overcome an addiction, what worked better for you, quitting cold turkey or a gradual roll off (every other day, then every 2 days, then every week, etc)?

Another fly day, but today is 1 year sober for me. I used to love airports because I could run to a bar as soon as I pass security on a Monday morning. Yet I didn't think I had a problem.

Alcohol + SO. I stopped drinking about 3months ago. Was trying to eliminate triggers for a new skin condition (alc/ bad food/airplane air / stress appeared to be triggers). And skin IS better! My BF

Can’t find any GA meetings around me at times I can make it work and need some help. Anyone have recommendations for tackling problem gambling without GA?

Stay sober this holiday my friends! Pro tip: eat enough turkey so the tryptophan builds up and pass out from that...

Waking up without a hangover. The best part of a Saturday. Hope you all are having a great morning.

Happy sober Sunday Funday! What’s going on this week in your sober life? I am not traveling and looking forward to working out more than usual in my home gym. And I am not drinking.

Honest question. I’ve seen an overwhelming positive response or recommendations for AA. I want to go now but what makes it so compelling to the group?

Saw this today and thought I’d share. It’s from a book called Twenty-Four Hours a Day, that has an AA Thought, Meditation, & Prayer for every day of the year. Today’s Thought really hit home for me.

Anyone want to chat about their addiction/sobriety? I’m getting forced into compliance by my SO and kind of glad and sad at the same time.

I had 12 drinks today. Still not drunk but buzzing. Not normal but just today’s reality. Going to a rehab clinic tomorrow. Dreading what the future holds.

Assuming one is an alcoholic...is there any middle ground for occasional drinks or is it all or nothing for recovery?

Any meditation stories on recovery anyone willing to share? Did you have break through moments during meditation?

Super anxious about attending an AA meeting. Is it awkward as it seems?
