    I don't, and it's not recommended. This is not like some fight when you have to prove how amazing you are, because weak moment can appear anytime and... is it worth it? Going out to buy something would take you some time to think "wait, what the hell am I doing..." But for me this is easy since I live alone.

    My partner reminded me today that we'd passed my anniversary (April 1st) - seven years booze free.

    Sitting on 14 days no booze. Smoked some to help sleep first couple days otherwise it's not been terrible. When I get back home (pet sitting) im gonna start hitting meetings I think. Already rarely smoke the reefer not concerned about that. Seems like the right time and thing ti do. So when I post dumb shit no I've not been drinking, for better or worse.

    i've been sober since september 10th. 138 days.

    i've had to re-learn how to enjoy things without alcohol. music, video games, company. everything. i can almost recognize the guy i see in the mirror every morning. i lost close to 30 pounds -- and it seems i can eat whatever i want, as much as i want, without gaining.

    watching a loved one i used to drink with every night die quickly from cirrhosis and stage five kidney disease is what got me here. and what's keeping me here.

    Re-learning how to do things is one of the trickier aspects of suddenly becoming sober. I'm glad you're handling it Congrats on 138
