    Hello Again

    Hello Everybody. I figured I would stop by and give an update on my sobriety. I made a thread quite some time ago, how I was fighting fatigue, and depression, and it made the act of getting sober seem pointless.

    Well, After I got a lot more sober time in, I'm feeling and doing great. Things just really started coming together. I'm over 16 months now, and I feel that the booze is completely out of my system.

    Now, I know you might say, "of course it is out of your system after 16 months." but, I'm talking about the residual effects. The aforementioned fatigue and apathy.

    For the hard core drinkers (I'm talking sloppy ass drunks for a long period of time) it is going to take a long time before you have the booze out of your system. I'm not writing this to discourage anybody, but to encourage them.

    I've read so many post where people would get 30, 60, even 90 days AF, and then break because of the anxiety, and guilt, and stress.

    I want to say that that stuff will go away. Everybody has a different rehab time. I never thought I'd find mine. I was miserable for so long. But, I got things together, and feel "normal." And it's great!!

    So, I just wanted to write and say that anyone, even the hard core users and abusers, can get their brain and body and emotions back in check with time and effort.

    Love to all. :l:h

    Hello Again

    Hey Morrison,

    I remember you!

    Brilliant! AF for 16 months. Way to go.

    Stop over to the monthly abs section if you are so inclined. There are lots of people with some solid AF behind them and some great newbies with some serious intent to stay AF.

    I'm so happy that you found your way out of the misery of drinking and I'm happy you checked in to let us know how you are doing.

    Hello Again

    Thanks for your words. I've just had a day at over 5 months were I'm tired, fatigued as you have written. I've stuck it out ODAT(1 hour at a time this evening), and am still AF.
