Yesterday was 900 days sober. Lots of ups. Lots of down. But not a single drop.

Today is 901, and it’ll continue as “one day at a time” for another 24 hours. 🙏

Does anyone struggle with overeating/binge eating? I’ve realized I’ve been coping with food which has led to gaining a bunch of weight. I know I’m eating more than what my body needs nutritionally, but in the moment I can convince myself that I haven’t eaten enough and NEED it :( I end up feeling so physically uncomfortable from how much I’ve eaten it’s hard to sleep. I live alone, but when I’m with friends I sneak to the bathroom to eat.

I had a background check when I was hired years ago. I told my supervisor at the time that it would not have great results. We have had a lot of management turnover since then.

Do you tell your friends and family every time you try to get sober? This is my third try, and at this point I'm not telling anyone because I'm afraid of either disappointing them, or seeing that they don't believe in my ability to do it on their face. Just in an emotionally fragile place right now and would rather try and move in silence this time. Good idea, bad idea? Trying not to look at it is as shame, more just wanting my privacy.

I’ve been sober about 14 months, and now with things opening up more I’ve been going out to dinner, concerts etc with friends. I’ve been finding it hard to have fun, or not get restless while out. I think a large part of this is maybe I find the company around me boring? and they’re also all drinking. Maybe I just needed to write that out and vent to say, I’m bored! Maybe saying that out loud will help me get out of my comfort zone to find new activities that change my outlook.

Sitting in the airport in Nashville. Whole lotta drinking going on. This town, like so many others can get raucous. Anyways, it’s late (10:30 flight) and I go to the coffee counter and ask for a black coffee, no room for cream. It’s like a secret handshake. Yes…I am, Said with just a small vague smile. No charge. Have a good night she says. I will, thanks. Grateful for one more day into this 2,948 day, 13 hour, 33 minute journey.

Went for a pre-employment drug test yesterday. They never asked me if I was on any medications. I had to ask them and was told "oh yeah, just put any you may think make a difference in this text box." I put Xanax, Flexeril, and gabapentin. All of which are prescribed and used as directed. Now I'm terrified that I should have put ALL my meds, to including my psych meds. I've been sober over 12 years and never touched drugs (just booze) but I'm having a full blown panic attack.

2mos of sobriety and thought I finally had it together; not for the length, but bc I started telling people, entered a good relationship, felt confident in being social + sober. And then at a work event, I got blackout. It was bad, and I ended up an incoherent drunk w/ a senior leader at hotel (not sexual, couldn't find my room at 3am and don't remember the rest). Apologized sincerely and they said it's ok. But I'm feeling weird, irresponsible and like this ruins a reputation- any advice ?
