Meeting tonight

by whydoiwantto

Going to a meeting tonight. Pretty nervous. But these drugs have got a hold on me and all my friends use… Might be nice to meet some sober people.

The good things about NA and AA is you will have one hour where you won’t be using. Keep stringing that together and you may have a day, then a week. Still sobriety is a journey not a destination. Just keep walking forward, even if it feels like you are walking in place.

When I tried to stop drinking it was the most lonely thing I ever did. I didn’t realize that all my friends were binge drinkers just like me and I had no idea what to do if I wasn’t drinking or blind drunk. I mean what do normal folks do? It took me a lot of years to be okay with doing normal things without adding all kinds of chemicals to the mix. I still slip up sometimes. I still binge sometimes, not proud of it, but it keeps me from just jumping into a bottle of tequila for weeks on end, which would destroy my life.

I’m really happy for you. And proud. Even if you don’t make it tonight, even if you don’t go inside to the meeting, you are trying, and trying is a step forward.
