21 days Sober!
Well, today marks 21 days, or three weeks!
Even though my car was totaled in a hit and run on Sunday, leaving me in a very precarious place as it was reliable but will bring little money for another, I did not drink, and will not drink.
I started a thread to talk about the path I am taking, should anyone be interested. The thread detailing my journey/steps can be found on the forums, here:
Working the Spiral Steps: A secular Stairway of Growth and Renewal (Working the Spiral Steps: A secular Stairway of Growth and Renewal)
To everyone who is new: There is hope. I was hopeless to the point of suicide; now, I have come to see there are many paths to recovery, and am following my path towards healing and growth.
A warm welcome to all the new members,
"The body is the soul."-Nietzsche

Way to go buddy. Also 504 hours, 30,240 minutes, 1,814,400 seconds. I have absolutely no idea how many moments that is, but I guess it doesn't matter, if there is only this moment. The car's still a bummer, but it pales incomparison to your 21 days living.

Congrats on three weeks sober!!
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.

Yay HuskyPup - 21 days feels so good, doesn't it? I remember starting to feel so much better around that time. You're doing great - so proud of you.

Congratulations. I'm glad you didn't use your misfortune as an excuse. Im proud of you for sticking with your plan.

Many things can be preserved in alcohol. DIGNITY is not one of them.
