Hit the 42 day sober mark today – not too much of a big achievement so far, however, just wanted to post a quick update.
Since deciding to go sober, I have done, and continue to do some research on communities / groups and other people in my age group who have decided to quit drinking as well.
I’ve found the support and the people here to be fantastic – everyone is so supportive and always happy to listen, give advice, and help to promote a good environment.
You can find a review on the above forum here at the Washington Post.
I also spend time in the Stop Drinking IRC channel as well – the people who frequent here are always happy to give support, give help, have a talk about anything – if you are ever in and see me (my username is: mike_m_82), don’t be shy and say hello, or drop me a PM.
I’ve also been watching a few vlogs on YouTube from people who’ve decided to quit drinking, and have followed their video journeys from start to finish (I’ve found the ‘path to sobriety’ videos by Sarah Ordo here to be a great example).
My next goal in this regard is to build my ‘sobriety’ network either online or in the real world – so if anyone knows of communities / blogs & vlogs / groups, please do let me know.
Anyway, that wraps this post. If you liked it, please comment, subscribe, share, and so on.
Till next time,
