Today makes 1.5 years!
How are the rest of you doing?
13 years but who’s counting.
I once tried going alcohol-free. Longest hour of my life!
congratulations , you are certainly on your way to living sober one day at a time.
Your choice will transform your life.
I am filled with gratitude today , for my being able to begin the transformation of my life today.
I couldn't believe people had been sober for years 15, 16, 17, 20 years.
I thought "nah? your pulling my leg, let go of my leg."
I was thinking that in September of 1983, I had been sober for three months. I have been sober since that time.
I was worried, IF what they say is true I've just doubled my life expectancy that's a really long time ,decades and decades, that's a lot of water, still to run under the bridge., somebody figured out exactly what was on my mind and said ,
"You know it's o.k. not to drink . You only have to do it today,
And me thinks, just for today, wait that's to simple, there's go got to be more to in than that.
Looking back to my days of being a drunken drug addict I would never ever want to go back ther,e ever.
So good for you my brother. Congratulation and we will continue on our journey together you were you are and me where I am , but we can do it together.
Sincere congratulations to everyone who is sober - keep it up .
That’s great congratulations!
Longass January though...
Yeah, I used to joke about it too.
It will be sixteen years for me in September. I think back on the person I was then versus who I am and where I’m at now and only wish I’d gotten off the roller coaster way sooner than I did.
at least you can take make a joke still
15 months in a few days!! Life is so much better and so much has changed in that time!!
3 years this spring.
pretty bad, hahaha. 2020 was a real ramp-up for me.
I read it as "Alcohol free, January 2020". I must confess I was pretty excited.
I was waitin' and waitin'... finally went out and bought my own.
10 years as of last month.
One of the very best things I’ve ever done.
To anyone considering quitting, know this... you can do it, it is hard, it is worth it.
just wait you ain't seen nothing yet, figuratively speaking, of coarse.
The circumstance of my life have changed, the winds do blow
this way and that way
some days are sweet and easy
some days are horribly hot and dry,
while other days are freezing
my values are not dictated by circumstances
today I have a choice, now I am free to choose
Congratulations. I believe that WE can do this together.
I have huge respect for all those who have taken control of their lives. I've watched many friends suffer with an addiction of one sort or another. Some didn't take control in time...
And I've never met anyone who said 'I wish I'd spent a few more years addicted to <whatever> before I quit...'
You cannot truly appreciate the beauty of light unless you have spent some time trapped in darkness.
Over the past couple of months, I have cut down on my alcohol intake considerably. I used to polish off a case over the weekend. Nowadays, I maybe do 3 in a couple of weeks.
Dunno what happened, but I'm just not motivated to get drunk. The thought of a beer does very little for me anymore and at time repulses me.
I'm not complaining at all, as it saves me money and health issues. I find it interesting how some tastes and interests can change rather quickly.
I wasn't quite ready on January 2020... I just started my healthier lifestyle this April so only 53 days for me today but man I feel great!
