How the hell would I know?

  1. I hope you have a kick @as sober weekend coming up! What I wouldn't give to be your age, with your self awareness. I didn't have a clue 3 decades ago where my path was leading. Quitting now can literally save your life!

  2. Thank you so much! And I don’t think I would have much of a clue either if not for this sub and people like you who have gone before me, sharing their stories about the dark path I was headed down and their wisdom about the better path I’m now on! So thank you!

  3. Push up on that man! I spent an extra decade after graduating at 23 wrecking weekend after weekend. Now my weekends are filled with endless, sober possibilities and it’s fucking glorious.

  4. Hey, I’m glad you’re here! I’m also 23. Definitely was afraid my life would be turned upside down without alcohol. Things have definitely changed, but it’s better this way. Knew I needed to get sober but I was too scared to commit. Then I relapsed and was like “wait this is what’s actually terrifying”. Everyone’s journey is different though. IWNDWYT

  5. Proud of you! It can be tough to see a drinking problem when surrounded by the drinking culture that’s so pervasive in colleges and such. IWNDWYT!

  6. Totally. There's quite a few truths that are revealed when you quit. Whatever you do next weekend, just be proud of yourself for not drinking.

  7. I’m starting to notice that! And I love having something to be proud of, even if I don’t manage to get a lot of things done, if I don’t drink, I’ve accomplished a great deal!

  8. I'm 25 and also in college, and this is the longest I've gone without drink in years. On Saturday I went to the beach and on Sunday I picnicked in the woods with friends. Fed the crows, they came all the way up to me and almost ate from my hand! Ate a lot of cake and sweets both days, rewatched a favorite movie of mine. Definitely worth it, and on Monday no anxieties and ready to start the week. It's crazy the kind of things we can do that we've never thought of doing while drinking, and insane how long the weekend actually is when you're not blacked out for half of it. Good luck and IWNDWYT!
