Hi Sam,
Advice? Don't do it. I gave up the booze a while ago. For a number of reasons, I hit the bottle big time just for one evening a short while ago and tried to kill myself. Just my view but please don't do it.

Sam, if you love yourself in the least little bit and want to truly find happiness, dont drink. Find friends who dont drink or drug and activities that dont revolve around such. god bless

sam..
If you do do it, think about the conswquenses especially If you disappoint yourself. Thats a headache with in itself let alone a hangover.
🙁 not a fun way to start a wednesday, or to end a tuesday.

hey i've been sober for about 4 years and last night i was real upset and drank. i ended up just feeling worse and mad at myself for breaking my sobriety and like i wasted my money.
also, i think the fact that you're asking is a good step, 'cos you probably figured that people would say it was a bad idea, right? don't do it! stay here and chat it up instead. or go out dancing with friends who'll support you in being sober and have a seven up and bitters! i love those! good luck, i'm here if you wanna talk. orange

I was just thinking that I have only drank twice since the week before Christmas and that is a record for me. I think one reason I don't drink now is that I am afraid I will get drawn back into the habit of it, I was drinking several times a week at one time. I feel so much better physically and mentally. I would encourage you to try not to drink and expand on the sobriety you have been building. If you do drink, don't beat yourself up about it though. Just get past it and move on. You have to do what's best for you. Do be careful if you drink.

I haven't been on very much. This is a new thing for me. I got out of class and decided to log on, the first thing that drew my eye, was you. Somebody once told me that I didn't have to be that "person" everyone thought I was. You don't have to be the addict you think you are. You can be a clean and sober person today, if you chose. I will keep you in my thoughts. I'm pulling for you. I know it's not easy making the right choice, but you can. You made the first right choice, you looked for help. Step one>>> Baby steps from hear....:)

SAM - DON'T DO IT and lose all your good time again......... been 8 years for me.... yes, I still want a drink every now and then, so I have a Pepsi instead with lime juice..... tastes good. You can still go out with your friends and have a pepsi or whatever. no one needs to know you're not drinking. Please don't do it......
