So I just did the official math and today I'm 90 days alcohol free...

I'd like to thank the board in general and specifically those people (don't recall exactly who) that convinced me not to drink on new year's eve as I said I planned on doing with my original posts in december. Who knows, you could have saved my life or kept me out of jail. At the very least you saved me between 100 or 200 bucks, depending on what I would have wound up getting into on NYE instead of staying home and watching Looper on blu-ray. For anyone who is just starting to quit now or only has a few days, I know it might seem like 90 days is far away, but the past 90 days have flown by, and not once have I regretted my decision to quit. I feel great both physically and mentally, and my life is getting better.

You have 90 days, 22 hours and 58 minutes sober.

That's 7858768 heartbeats and counting.


Woohoo! Let your heart beat another sober beat!!

Congratulations on your 90 days. New Years Eve seems so long ago now, I bet your thought pattern on celebrating & drinking has changed like mine seems to have.

Well done avocado. You rock!!
