I've been sober 5 and a half months now, thank God. My message is for relapsers - DON'T EVER GIVE UP. I've had a horrible time maintaining sobriety, and five and a half months is the longest I've been sober in a looooooong time.

Keep it up, and congratulations! A wise old alky gave me some good advice a long time ago. Find something to be passionate about, and pursue that with the same passion you gave to getting hammered.

Doesn't matter what it is (as long as it's legal and moral) <g>. It can be a hobby, a new career, volunteer work where your special skills are needed, anything at all to drive away the boredom. So many people are just bored to death without the high, and they slip back into it just for something to do, not because there was a demon pulling on them.
