    I feel like there is so little activity on these message boards and I am just curious – are there people interacting here? I have posted a couple of things and got no response. I also noticed that there is a lot of activity from months, or even a year ago, but not so much now.
    Anyway, I am successfully on Day 9, and although this day was not starting well, it ended well. I was feeling so overwhelmed with all the information and very alone with it. I finally went out to dinner with my husband (who is a big drinker), ordered a very nice club soda and pineapple with lime (delicious!) and told him about this program and where i was at with it and how I need his support. I had been afraid to talk to him about it for whatever reason. Maybe I thought he would not understand. He does and that makes going through this so much easier for me.

    I”m here, seem to be a week and 1 day behind you. Hope you are still doing well. I haven’t told my hubby yet that I am doing this. I know I would get his support, I think it’s because I am still afraid that I will fail.

    Welcome aboard the Sober Coaster @heatherpc and @deejm !
    Keep posting. The Companion Website is having problems with SPAM currently. Hopefully it will be fixed in the near future. Stay strong!

    I’m here, too. This companion really helped me when I began this process this past December 31. I so hope you are enjoying your sobriety. There are just so many valid reasons not to rely on alcohol. I’m also developing my knowledge of meditation through “Holosync”. I’m finding that intriguing, too. It really feels right to Live Well. (I just enjoyed a Bai Bubbles – Sparkling Black Cherry drink. It hit the spot!)

      Thanks @katballou. I go to look at the “Forums ” to check for the most recent posters. Consider doing that too so Newbies don’t get discouraged. Congratulations on your continuing Sobriety.

    I was thinking the same thing. Most of the posts are really old and since I made one of my goals to post everyday, I felt like I would be sending radio signals into space looking for E.T. but I got a mention on the first post and we are going through the same situation. I was going to start a new one but I think adding to the titles that most reflect how I am feeling at the moment may help someone else. I’m on day 9 and this is the second day sober and taking action is one of the things I struggle with the most. I get bored easily and we all know that past decisions creep in when decision fatigue takes hold. Even if no one reads this I think as a sounding board for my personal thoughts is a good release of anxiety and staying optimistic that I will receive support through past posts and encouraging others to share is good for us all. I feel happy, healthy, strong of mind and body and grow stronger everyday I am sober.

      Congratulations on sticking to the program!
      I have been around here since early in 2016 and still pop in to encourage people.
      This program helped me find a new direction and I believe it can for you as well!

    Just wanted to say I am more of a reader than a poster, so shouldn’t complain when there are mostly old posts here, but I was thinking the same thing. Day 9 for me today, also day 9 without a drink. Really enjoying this program, still craving like crazy around 4 o’clock or so which is when I would usually have that 1st beer (then 7 or 8 more), but it does pass and a few hours later feel great about not giving in.
    Just figured I’d create some activity here 🙂

      Hi there chvara84.
      Thanks for deciding to make the leap from reader to poster!
      There is still some life here despite Dave Andrews squandering the opportunity gifted him by Jack Canfield agreeing to co author a book with him.
      And I still believe in the magic of this program since it enabled me to begin my journey Thriving in Sobriety and Life!
      It can do this for you too Friend!
      Keep posting, keep thriving!

    Hi everyone, I’ve never posted on this website so here goes! I am 11 days sober and just finished day 7 in the book. I’ve actually gone a few times without alcohol, back in 2016 for 40 days, 30 days in 2018 and 13 days in early 2019, but I never went through the whole book, just up to day 7. This time I am going sober until Easter and using this book along with another book, also my husband is doing this with me, which is so much better. My hope is that after being sober for 48 days, I will lose my desire to drink and choose to never have this crap in my life again. There’s truly nothing good about it, the cons FAR outweigh the pros, even the “positives” of alcohol are an illusion, once the buzz wears off, I’m groggy, moody and mad at myself again for being so irresponsible with my health.

      Hi Meemaw5650.
      I’m so glad you and your husband are committing to this endeavor. It is such more compelling when we partner up!
      Although I know that more than a few books/ programs on the market insist that you will lose all desire for Alcohol once you change your beliefs about it through reading the facts presented. I do hope that method works for you. Many do have success with this.
      In my opinion, and in my experience, this is not always the case. Our minds are not always rational. They are emotional. Some believe that we develop an “Addictive Voice” which subverts our best intentions.
      That is why I value The 30 Day Sobriety Solution so much! In this program we work on our own values. We are given so many valuable tools to use when we inevitably have desires to engage in Addictive behaviors we rationally know are not in our best interests.
      I believe that even in the face of our fleeting desires to drink, the 30DSS enables us to rely on our inner strength to follow our New selves and make the better choice willingly! The choice is to Thrive in Sobriety and Life!
      Onward Friends! Sina

    Hi, I am on day 22 and loving this program. However it is not my first time, I made the mistake of thinking, “great, I did the 30 days and I am done”. That didn’t work for me but I learned from it. Completing the 30 day program is a great starting point, it got me on the right track. But in order to stay there I need to keep reminding myself of the solutions, I need to continue to ready, practise the solutions and even journalizing, if I want to truly thrive in sobriety. I need to do enough work to make it a part of my life so that I don’t forget and fall back into old habits. All the best to you in your journey. M
