That’s one of the hardest things for me too. Learning to face reality on reality’s terms. Strengthen that muscle.

Ain’t gonna lie it hard hard at times…hang tough. The urges only last up to 60 minutes. If you can hold on that long u got this❤️

I am glad you are back. Any time I get is a gift. I was in and out for 16 years. I kept coming back. I now have 13 years sober and my son has never seen me drink. Perhaps you can do better than me I pray you do it is much harder to stay out and alive these days.
