I want a change in some aspects of my life, but I still feel scared. I like my friends I have right now, but I don't know how much I'll have in common with most of them if I don't party anymore. Recently two of my best friends lied to me big time and did some other awful things. I was very shocked and upset, because I have always had this expectation of loyalty and honesty from myself when it comes to my close friends, and I thought they felt the same way. But it seems to me that most of my friendships lately (though not all) are more about how often we've drank together in the past than about actual love and respect...

Welcome to my first 6 months of sobriety! What an exciting and whirlwind time in my life it was, and I look back upon it with fondness. Although I am very glad to be past those incredibly challenging and painful first few months. The only thing I would have done differently was started working the Steps right away instead of waiting!
