Wow....lots of encouragement in everyone's post here tonight....Thank You!!! I have 10 days today (last relapse was at 10 day's) I too, feel something different this time.....I have "said" I've surrendered in the past, but really "feel" I've surrendered to the fact that I am completely "powerless" over alcohol once I take that first drink. My thinking has been NOT that I can't drink, or that I'm somehow missing out on something without it, but that I don't Have to drink again & that I'm not missing out on a damn thing when I think back to the last drunk (or the last 100 honestly).

I had a great day today.....I like to consider myself a pretty optimistic & happy person, but I felt just "really happy" today, like I haven't felt for quite awhile....was great! Keep it up everyone......your awesome
