Tomorrow I'm heading back to college, I have one more semester left until I graduate. I've been sober all summer and am extremely frightened to be back in my college town. It reminds me of Las Vegas, parties and temptation at every corner. I am in the midst of my steps and have a good relationship with my sponsor and family to call but it's definentily going to be the hardest trek of my sobriety by far. I live at my own apt. so it's going to be tough staying in bored all the time and being pressured to go out. It's tough all my friends are doing the same thing and I'm really concerned I guess getting really bad anxiety already. I guess I just need some advice I am already frightened to death this is the place where my drinking was extremely out of control and it's a tough environment for me in my early sobriety.
