4 years sober today after spending 5 years hopelessly addicted to opioids. So grateful for recovery communities for taking me in and showing me how to live. If you’re struggling, reach out to us! There’s a way out...but it’s not alone
I can't stop myself from having 2-4 beers a night..atleast 3 nights a week..it used to be a LOT more beer and whiskey, but now that I'm living with my mom, I find myself making excuses to step out of the house and drink (sometimes alone)..makes me feel very guilty. I have tried early dinners to subdue the urge but it doesn't work. Tried excercising in the evenings but that just makes the urge stronger (reward mechanism). Don't know how to reduce/stop. Any advice?
Is everyone on here sober from (mostly) everything? Do you sometimes partake in other vices? For me, it’s smoking herb 1-2x/week. Used to be way worse (❄️⛷💊🥃) and that’s how/why I justify it.
Anyone addicted to smoking hookah here? I’ve relapsed recently and had been sober for about 3 years. Looking to hear anyone else’s path to sobriety.
1+ years sober 🥰
For anyone who’s in recovery and also currently living alone, I found this book really enlightening (pun intended).

What have you found as sustainable strategies regarding work outings in an industry where everyone drinks heavily? I don't want to be anti-social and feel it can affect my career if I don't attend, but I also need to be very careful
Friendly reminder: You are not in this alone. Reach out to one of us. Go to a meeting. Talk to your support group. I know the holidays can be rough.
Ex wife gets married tomorrow. Didn’t think it was bothering me but I dropped my kids off at her house for the rehearsal and I’m struggling to keep distracted. I know having a drink only destroys the trust I’ve rebuilt, but I don’t want to feel like this.
Made it this far, I’m on a roll! Thanks to all of you in the community for your support, I couldn’t do it without you!
For the newbies, the program is working for me, just wanted to share that.
Amazing feeling waking up the Monday after Super Bowl and not being hungover like past years. Thank you all for the support in this bowl!
Day 1 again. And charges for drink driving pending blood test (it will be high). Feeling stressed but also know I just have to go with it and accept what comes and try to get strong again with the help of this great community
Steps to recover from massive gambling (online) loss? Every week that I pay out sizeable amounts in the $5-15k range and feel so rotten. I win sometimes too - just only in the $1-2k range. I have blown all my life savings in the past 3 months to an online bookie I don’t even know. I have severe anxiety now and can’t sleep at night thinking about how I’ve ruined my life. This week on Wednesday I was down $7k, next day i miraculously covered that loss & was up $2k only to lose $11k in 6 hrs.
I’m part of SA but haven’t been working the program, partially because I convince myself that it’s not really an addiction - everyone watches porn, etc… and partially because I have a really tough time with admitting that I have a weakness in general.
I want to get back to program and don’t want to wait until I hit bottom.
Happy to hear your experience, strength and hope!
Today’s Daily Reflection really hits home:
When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 64
It is very difficult for me to come to terms with my spiritual illness because of my great pride, disguised by my material successes and my intellectual power. Intelligence is not incompatible with humility, provided I place humility first. To seek prestige and wealth is the ultimate goal for many in the modern world.
4 Years Yesterday!
One day at a time.
