4 Months!!!! Woot Woot!!!!!!

120 days sober ... 4 months!! Wow this last month went by quicker then the last. Still struggling mentally (moods and anxiety) but I'm faking it everyday. I keep telling myself I won't be like this forever. I am starting to realize this takes a long time to feel "normal" ... But I'm so proud of myself for staying clean.
This past month has been challenging I have been trying to do some soul searching within myself, who am I? What do I like? What inspires me? I haven't found any of those answers yet but I'm not going to stop trying!

I thank all of you so much without your support I wouldn't be here.
I'm going to put on a happy face and make it through to the other side!

I love your frame of thinking, it took me a long time too, but eventually the addict brain gave in saying, "Okay, if your not gonna give me drugs, I guess I gotta get some natural highs going." Never stop growing, you won't regret the worst of it.

Wow there Girl! I guess now you have 121 days. AND, My have you Grown up so fast..Although you might still be in that Baby Step stage, you still have come a long ways and are really learning alot..And you are doing a Great Job sharing it out here.

Now I have to 100000% agree with Sarah on her remark.
I was over analyzing EVERYTHING in my first 6 months..Like WHY, WHAT, HOW, WHEN..Girl it drove me crazy, so I stopped. Just like I shared at the meeting tonight..This is not just a Job that we have to work at, it is also a Adventure..Changes keep happening EVERY DAY. And as we Spiritually Grow we learn to trust this process and know that God has this all planned out for us now that we gave our Life Back to him. So kick back and enjoy the Blessing as they flow in..Of coarse, Life will have some challenges..(Girl do I know) but you will continue to get stronger and stronger as time goes on. And dealing with Life Challenges is so much better Clean & Sober..Amen to that!!!!
Proud of YOU!!!

Hey~! Congratulations!! You're doing SO great! What a journey eh? So happy for you girl :)  Just curious if you're doing any aftercare? meetings? It can really help with that "figuring out" the other stuff... AA and N/A are about teaching you how not use... it's about teaching US how to do life sober :).
Happy for YOU!! Keep at it~!
