Fell off the wagon... Again.

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Well, I was doing so well! I had been sober for 3 months and I had lost 24 lbs. Then my Mom died. I really thought that I was strong enough to work through it without a slip, but that didn't happen. So here I am, 1 month later, back at square one. I don't know if I will ever win this battle.

    Please accept my sympathy on the death of your Mom. I went thought that a year ago this past August.

    So you had a slip..at least you're back on the wagon. Perhaps you know why you had that slip now and will be able to prevent it from happening again. Glad you have a month now. remember, NOTHING is worth taking that first sip again. I hope you have lots of support around and perhaps a sponsor in your chosen 12 step group? That can help a lot.If you feel that urge again, call someone. You are worth it! Spark mail me if you need or want to talk..

    Hi,

    So sorry about your Mom. Everybody slips. I have a food addiction as well as a propensity to over indulge with booze myself. I have not figured out why yet but I'm working on it. You can do this. You said that you did really good for 3 months, that's 90 day's of a fantastic effort. Get back on that wagon and be good to yourself:)

    Funny thing about wagons, they move kind of slow so it's not hard to jump back on them. I'm a survivor of an alcoholic parent and I'm a survivor of my own drug abuse, I'm here to tell you it doesn't matter what it is, it will never be more important than your own life. I'm not sure what your sobriety is from, but its all the same battle. Even if your at square one again, just be thankful that there is a starting point, and it will always be there.
