Hi everyone and anyone who reads this. I am heading toward day 60 sober in a few days. I am excited to have almost reached this point. I didn't like being a drunk. I didn't like who I was when I was drunk.
I am still early in my recovery, I am very aware to be viligent, because I am only 1 drink away from being an alcoholic.
I am starting an intense outpatient program tomorrow morning at 9am. Mixed emotions about that. Excitement, fear of failure, random drug screens etc. etc. Facing some of the demons that brought me to this place.
I am an adult child of an alcoholic, and grandchild, my first addiction of choice and for many many years was food. I took "care" of that by having gastric bypass surgery. Great tool to get you to not eat a lot of food and lose weight. Not great at all for the addiction aspect of it. That part of the problem was never addressed, so here I am, 2yrs later, a recovering alcoholic, finally getting the addiction counseling I needed so long ago.
