Anbsolutely true. Thanks for the reminder.


One thing that always puzzles me is what to say to somebody who identifies themselves as a newcomer, with 15 or 30 days of sobriety or something, only to reveal later that this is the latest of many attempts to get sober, that they've relapsed half a dozen times and been in and out of the program for years, but "this time, they're serious".

Obviously I want to encourage them, but my own personal experience (one try, sober 3 years) seems essentially inapplicable to them.

What do I say? "Good luck, keep coming back?" Any advice?
