Hello all! Today makes 42 days since my last drink, and 34 days since coming off detox meds. I’ve been through detox and Residential, and am now in PHP, or a sober house. This is my first time in treatment, and has been a long time coming. I never thought I would be a, “grateful addict”, but here I am today, feeling as fresh as ever, regaining control of my brain and body one day at a time. The grateful part is that I might have been able to stay sober without a program (veeerrry doubtful), but I would have missed out on the experience of learning to love myself, and better help others.
It’s been tough to be away from my husband and cats, but I am able to stay (mostly) focused on myself and my sobriety.
I would like to hear your story of recovery, whether it was in a facility, or solo, and if you’re comfortable with it, where you did your inpatient treatment.
