i haven't gone more than a month sober in the last 12 years, that was only once after rehab. The rest of those years no more than a day or two at a time. Even if i only had 3 beers i would consider that a day i didn't drink. my question is for those of you that have successfully made it for long periods of sobriety without relapse, does it ever get any easier? do you ever get to a point where alcohol doesn't consume your thoughts constantly? I know that i can never be a social drinker, i can never crack open a beer with a buddy during a football game, I can never have a glass of wine with a lovely lady over dinner and i'm actually ok with these things, I just want to get to a point in my life where i can not obsess over alcohol. I'm back on day 4 now and i know if it wasn't for knowing the antabuse would make me sick i would already be drinking.
