    I have about a six day cycle. I think what is happening is that at six days I “forget” I have a problem. I wonder if that’s about normal.

    I certainly don’t have a problem avoiding alcohol for the first two days sober. Day three I tend to feel good and want to “party.” Day four and five I sort of forget it, then about five or six I am tempted and question myself.

    I do feel that I will get this handled. And I appreciate the stories of 12 Step National Meetings compatriats who relapse after months or years, but gosh, it’s amazing.

    Also, from my start month, I don’t see very many of my quit buddies on here. I think that’s very sad. I’m guessing some have gone back to drinking and are ashamed to come on here. I imagine a very few are doing great and are too busy in their sobriety. Is that what others think?

    As for myself, I’m going to keep coming back regardless because I must get this handled. It is not an easy thing for me, but I am getting better.

    How about you?

    I “forget” about my addiction after about 30 days. At that time I feel great in my recovery and that I can now proceed to living like a normal person, including drinking casually at parties and whatnot. Last time I acted on the compulsion on day 39. Now I am on day 37 and have learned what my pattern is. I am not sure what comes after this, but I am sure that I want to push forward and find out.

    Missy,
    Are you working a program other than 12 Step National Meetings? If not, maybe you should consider some additional resources and supports.
