I'm now taking the first steps into sobriety after years of having issues with alcohol. I feel woefully unprepared and anxious about leaving booze behind and wondering if I can even do it. I feel like I have all of this time stretching before me that I now have to fill without drinking, and I'm going to have to figure out who I am when I don't have alcohol in my life. I almost feel like I am leaving a part of myself behind, even though I know that it was never the real me. What helped you when you first became sober? Is there any advice you share?
