Sober cheers to not doing anything stupid at your office holiday party because you’re not drinking anymore & can watch all drunks make fools of themselves 🙌🏼✌🏼

Those sober through a program (AA/NA) How do you deal with the anxiety that sets in after qualifying? Been sober a year, qualified a few times, but man the after still feels like my first time sharing

Let's get a little check in - how have you been doing? Feeling any urges lately? Found any coping mechanisms? Love & support to you as we enter the holiday season.

Not sober currently. But think about it. What happened to all your mates when you stopped? Did they dump you (because you make them feel guilty for drinking)? And what if your wife drinks too?

I relapsed after 2 years sober. Started a week ago when I grabbed a kombucha & then learned it was hard kombucha (4.4%). Last night I had 3. I drank bc I have been stressed. Feel like shit today.

One of my friends who I met at my first real ad job died because of this disease on Friday. I’m sad for so many reasons.

Anyone in NYC gone to the “commuters special” meeting? I’ve never been but I’m speaking there on Wednesday and I want to know if it’s a small or huge meeting (so I can get more nervous)

I can’t handle the networking thing sober.... I’ve been sober 4 years and I still find it incredibly difficult... also a young professional

Yesterday I celebrated 8 years since the last time I had a sip of alcohol. Best decision I ever made. If you’re in the early days of sobriety, hang in there. It gets so much better!
