I haven't been out here and posted in a long time; I have kind of made the issue not a part of life I spend much time thinking about. Day 855.

Hi UpDownAround, nice to see your name, and congrats on your name. I'm glad you've reached the point where it's a non-issue in your regular thinking, Hope to get there myself.

I am home, and back to day one. I have a lot of "I can't" in my head.

5 months sober in just over a week[!], which has gone quite fast for me.

Now that the weather is becoming sunnier though, I've been getting the drinking bug a bit. But I just shift my thoughts away from drinking and remind myself of the reality of my alcoholism - and if you're an AA person, that's all about Step 1 and powerlessness.

Wishing everyone encouragement on your journey's.

We're powerless, folks! Don't drink and drug!

Fret not, @childofchaos831, and just keep trying and trying. It's normal to stumble at times.

I'm sorry you relapsed, but it's not the end of the world. You know how many times I've relapsed and started over. The important part is to try to learn from the relapse, so if the same set of triggers arise in the future, you won't be as tempted to use. And get right back on the sobriety wagon.

I'm cheering you on.

I was gonna go skiing today but I slept in. Took 2 hours to fall asleep last night so I was asleep by 4am. It's from phenibut withdrawal. Took a 1mg xanax.

I was over the withdrawal but I decided to take more for a few days because it makes my hikes so much more fun like alcohol. Everyone else was drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes and marijuana. I feel left out. I don't want to be moody and depressed.

It's hard.

But it's been like 4 months without cigarettes.

On day 1 again... I'm probably going to end up in the hospital again by the end of today... I've been in a couple times recently, one after a su attempt. If I'm honest with the T at PHP, I will be in the hospital by the end of the day.
