How did you finally get sober ?
Thinking about rehab to reduce my jail sentence lol

Provided that I continue to do the next right thing, I'll have 39 years of sobriety in January. I joined AA in 1982. That made all the difference.
[@1250,AllAboutLaffs] welcome, that's a really great testimony.

I fell into rehab after a nurse I trusted recommended it. It was that or drink myself to death. All kinds of addiction treated via 12 Step Minnasota method.

8 weeks as in patient, 2 months day programme 1 year aftercare. 16 years 12 Step fellowship. 16 years sober.

Good luck

[@14688,Nunos50] that’s about as long as I’ve been alive

[@335573,Alexasmilez] it's never too early or too late to give up

Ps one of my good friends only went to rehab after a judge offered it instead of a custodial sentence. She's been clean and sober ever since. Best decision she ever made.

[@14688,Nunos50] I hope the judge sees this and some compassion for me

I got lucky. I just stopped wanting it. Drink and drugs just don't do it for me anymore so there's no point. I do get the temptation at times but I know they won't help.

I had a moment of clarity during which I saw what I had become. I started going to
a 12-step program. Nineteen years sober now. It IS possible to get clean and sober. There is a saying that if we don’t, we end up locked up, shut up or covered up.
