Coming up on 3 years without drinking next week. life is still hard(that ainít changin) but 1000x more manageable. way less reactionary to bullshit and quicker to fix problems.

I have forgotten until day of the last two years to try and do something to ďcelebrateĒ the time passing so itís been lackluster, but this year Iím going to do it up. Maybe go eat a nice/fancy dinnerÖ

anyone else do anything when they hit milestones?

Traveled this weekend for the first time since quitting booze and man, travel is definitely a trigger for me. Or at least, all my habits while traveling have been centered around drinking. Didnít drink but definitely dealt with a really wide range of emotions. I think my brain was trying to figure out what the fuck to do in a new place and free time and none of my routines from at home. Normally traveling meant drink on the way there, bar hop the whole time being there, suffer or hair of the dog the whole way back.

Man, totally relate to this and have been thinking about it a lot lately. I was always a really big traveler going all over the world. But I am now worried about getting out of my current routine comfort zone and getting back on the sauce to cope with those disruptions. When ever I traveled I was drinking before, during and on the way back everyday. Hopefully I can figure out a way to do it, probably need to start small and not jump into some big international trip or anything.
[close]

only time i thought about drinking recently was traveling. i was stuck in an airport, tired and had a long day of traveling ahead of me.

"this is the kind of situation that drinking is made for..."

but it was a fleeting thought. i'm more or less in a new mental space where my nights are about resting up so i can have a killer day and not about unwinding from a shitty day.

I was literally thinking about this as my morning was kind of going to shit today, just thankful to at least not be dealing with a hangover and being dehydrated on top of already being frustrated with the mornings sequence of events and an already upset stomach. Could be worse, it has been worse, but at least I'm doing my best to not make it worse today.

I did order in some excellent pizza when I hit two years recently, but otherwise the day was pretty normal with the added pat on the back I gave myself when I woke up. It's funny, I'm not much of a going out person but I did kind of want to go get dinner somewhere with family but it just didn't work out that weekend. If I'm lucky, I'll have more milestones to do that another time. Congrats on the incoming 3 years, huge accomplishment!

Really encouraging to hear Iím not alone in these particular feelings. I have therapy today and itíll be great to dissect this a bit there as well.

Definitely enjoying my days more without alcohol - I was totally rushing through work/chores/whatever before to get to the point in the day where I could justify starting drinking.

Congrats to those of yall hitting milestones now/soon!

it gets easier the longer you go. i'm somewhere around 9 years off the fermented sauce. I once asked this older cat who mentored me why they quit drinking and he said "i never would have gotten anything done other than drinking if I kept drinking." sometimes it helps to take inventory of what i've gotten done and am doing that most likely wouldn't have happened were i still getting fucked up

-i'm alive and pretty well when most of the old ones passed on
-working mostly for myself since around the time i stopped
-traveled all over creation
-earned a master's degree
-got a home with no help
-been with the same partner in a good, strong relationship
-im skating on the regular
-building relationships with important and skilled members of my chosen field
-avoided unintended kids or diseases
-learned to fix/repair engines and cars in general
-learned to train a dog to a higher than basic pet level
-no record
-no dui

i'm not posting this to gloat or boast, but just taking stock on a particularly shitty feeling day to remind myself that life is alright and it's a long journey. before i got kicked outta boot camp the thing that stuck was "the days are long, but the months fly by." life is like that sometimes, ya know?

my wife and i talk a lot about being freed from the mental baggage of drinking and the race to happy hour everyday was a big part of it. it's just there on your mind all day. then other parts being annoyed when you eat out because it takes so long to get your drink. having to plan your workouts and fitness around having enough calories to dedicate to alcohol. i'm bored more than i used to be but also free from that mental baggage.

Still here still sober. I have a craving for some whiskey every once in a while. I just do something else to try to forget. Do the cravings ever go away? Or am i gonna have that forever?

I thought travelling would be rough without booze as well, but then I went on a solo road trip and it was amazing.  So much more time and energy to actually see and do things.  No planning around drinking or not drinking, just pure freedom.  A brewery is a brewery, a glass of wine is a glass of wine.  The things youíll see and experience away from home are worth so much more than a slightly different drink.

Wait. Wait. Wait. Whaaaaat!?! You planned around drinking? Damn, G. Sorry to hear that 😂

Only thing i planned was to never run out. I drank all the time. On the road. On the rails. In the air. Walking in the park. Riding a bikeÖ GROSS!!!

Glad youíre alive, dood. Glad youíre well and enjoying the fruits of life

I'll be thee months no booze in a few weeks. I've been craving sweets like a mother fucker though...chocolate bars and candy, even Pepsi and pop. I don't normally have a sweet tooth, and I never would drink pop. One of the dollar stores in my city has these weird Turkish chocolate bars, amd ones called 4fun and it's absolutely delicious and is only 60Ę. I'm not proud , but I've been crushing those.

Just reading through this thread and wanna give all you guys who have kicked, trying or thinking about kicking booze a shoutout for making sick life changing moves.  It's fucked how hard it is to quit as it's so available, encouraged and easy to self medicate with it.  Inspiring shit, love it.

I was never a big sweets guy until I quit drinking, you'll eventually phase out of it, enjoy it for now though haha. If you're lucky, you'll strike a nice balance. I did for a bit but now I can hardly get through a whole soda without just kinda being over it, which I guess is a healthy balance I suppose, but sometimes I find it hard to enjoy sweets now. I'm sure my body is happier for it though! Congrats on three months!  :)

i'm in the 8-9 month range and cravings stopped for me probably 2-3 months in, maybe more. i then had more situational cravings, in restaurants, etc. but those went away for me around 6 month mark. these days when i see other people drinking it just reinforces me because it looks unhealthy to me now like smoking cigarettes or something like that.

i eat way more sweets but there was definitely a spike and then flattening of the curve. we are on our first night of spring break and i hung out playing video games and listening to music with my 13 and 16 year old and then we did a late night mission to get their first malt shakes at whataburger and candy at the corner store. blasted music the whole way. it was pretty much today's version of partying for me. up at 6:30 and feel great this morning.

Good news that the sugar craving will subside. I've never been a big sugar guy, it's terrible for you. Plus my kid will eat candy at any possible chance so if I have candy I have to share it with her.

A guy at work had the whole work crew of dudes, about 10, over to his place two weeks ago after work on a Friday to hang out in his shop and he fed us and had snacks and stuff, big drinking session as well.

I stuck to the NA Coronas and left at 930, felt great when i woke at six to go to the ski hill and take the kid to ski lessons and ride while she was in her lessons.
When I heard about their hang overs on monday, It brought back that hangover anxiety feeling, on their part.
I don't miss that feeling, at all. You know the feeling, "hangxiety"? you wake up, and you don't know what happened, what you did, who you pissed of, or what you ended up breaking?

Pile that on with the daily anxiety and no wonder I was a mess.

Shout out to everyone who has updated in the thread recently. I have a really good support group of friends/family but I find that the anonymous group setting here is really nice too because thereís no pressure or anything personal really, weíre just internet strangers with similar goals.

I also noticed the sweets craving/food cravings in general. I didnít give them much thought because my main focus is kicking booze and whatever I gotta do to get there (within reason) Iím ok with. Iíve been eating more and eating more treats and Iím still down 12 lbs since January.


Iím getting absolutely crushed at work right now - Iím in tech and pretty sure my company is gearing up for more layoffs. The good news is even though my anxiety is through the roof, Iím not sleeping, etc - drinking hasnít been an appealing thought. I think Iím slowly getting better at dealing with emotions and lifeís ups and downs instead of trying to push them away or temporarily blunt them with 12 old fashioneds

Hope everybody has a great week ahead of them

I'll be sober a year on the tenth, I also visited my doctor today who knows nothing of my past drug use and she suggested temazepam for my sleep. Benzos were my drug of choice and I did ten years on em. I'll be honest I really jumped we she suggested temazepam, it's a free clinic that is state funded and I thought they don't prescribe controlled drugs. Well they do you just have to take a drug test, so I gotta wait a few weeks to get the hhc outta my system.

I'll be honest I'm really excited about it, temazepam is one of the few benzos I never tried and a lot of people say it's the best one (can't be better than injected clonazolam though). So basically it was nice to be sober for a year but I'm bouta jump off the wagon next month. I don't really care about the idea of being a sober person I just needed to get my shit straight. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a massive drug binge but I think I'm over that part of my life. Excited I get some life relief happy pills but kinda sucks I'm ending my sober streak, at least I did a year.

Yo player, benzos suck!!! I mean, before it gets outta hand, the fuzz feels great, but for me, risking the bender or subsequent w/d isnt worth it. If you were shooting clam you have most likely had the w/d hard. For me, the w/d from etiz brought a more frightening week long psychosis that was crazier than anything i have ever experienced.


I dont generally tell people my thoughts on such matters, so you do what you feel you need to do, but there are other alternatives to insomnia.

Edit to say: idgaf about being a ďsoberĒ person, i do what i do as it works for me- no booze, no pills, no dope because i dig being alive and the quality of my being is better w.o those habits

Yea I've been through benzo withdrawal like 20 times including psychosis, it doesn't really bother me now I know I'll have to pay the piper when I stop. I don't think I will get out of control with 30 pills a month but I kinda worry it will change my mindset to not giving a fuck and ordering more drugs.

But I guess I'll find out

I never struggled with benzos but I know plenty who have and that shit sounds awful.

Iíve had good luck with ambien/zolpidem for sleep.

It is frustrating all the shit that actually fucking works well and works instantly is also habit forming lol

Hope everybody has a great week ahead of them

i'm also in tech and had a absolutely shit year last year. spent nearly a decade building my company and have been really having a hard time keeping the lights on. sobering up was critical for me to have the best chance possible of keeping this thing going and we are fortunately finally on an upswing. through the whole thing i found comfort in "at least i'm not drinking" and knowing my health was good, relationships great and that my productivity was redlined.

i've seen a lot of people get laid off, it's a shit time in tech but you'll definitely navigate it better with a clear head and lots of energy. if the shit does hit the fan feel free to DM me. i've got a huge network of founder, CTO and executives that i'd be happy to share your resume in.

Just passed 10 months no alcohol here.

I guess the bar I frequent stopped carrying the beer brand I used to drink because I was the main demand they were supplying.

I guess the bar I frequent stopped carrying the beer brand I used to drink because I was the main demand they were supplying.

Hell ya, Mr Ed Lawndale Esq.

Back when i was a young shitbag, my local dive only carried Bud Light and Bud Heavy. But it was $8 for a pitcher, $2 pint, $2.50 bottle. I requested PBR and being well acquainted with the old timer who owned the place, he started carrying it for me. It was even cheaper! Anyways, when I stopped drinking, they also stopped carrying PBR

Proud of you, dude

3 weeks ago I was yellow. This putrid colour yellow and yellow eyes.

In rehab for the second time. Gonna make it work even though itís fuxking boot camp with extremely unstable people. My bunky has 1% on one side of his neck and 187 on the other side. Super nice dude though. I try to never judge.

 99% of people here are from a court order straight from jail. Definitely not like the rehabs on the movies. But hey, at least Iím not drinking.

Congrats!!! Big 1 year, that's awesome. I agree it's kind of interesting to think back on other stages of our lives and go "yeah 24 year old me would have never"...and yet here we are.
