Doggonecarl has two years sober!!
Let's hear it for doggonecarl and his two years clean and sober. Thank you Carl for all your wit and good advice. I always learn something from you.
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.

Awesome Carl!!! Congrats on the two years!
The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.

I want to thank everyone on SR for making this milestone possible. I spent years telling myself I needed to quit drinking. Trying and failing over and over. I did not succeed until I came here. Coincidence? Hardly.
I wish I could personally thank those whose advice and support was instrumental in my recovery by name. But I am afraid I'd leave someone off. So thanks to all my SR sisters and brothers.
I would be remiss if I didn't thank the forum leaders, moderators, and community greeters whose wisdom, guidance, and patience is immeasurable.
Two years sober...I'm blessed.
