I cannot believe what a little over a year has accomplished. I will never forget those nights and weekends when I was so bored not drinking.

Fast-forward and my life is full. I no longer think of suicide. My heart does not race at 2:30 a.m. I take care of myself. I am more present. Life is great. For those of you just starting out, stick with it. Just don't take that first drink.

You can do it, I was a life-long drinker for many many years. I do not miss it. Not even for St. Pat's.

That's wonderful to hear, Htown. We do go through many phases - I'm happy to know your life is fulfilling now. I know others will appreciate your thoughts & learn from them.

Awesome on the one year+.

I know what you mean - I have so much energy now and never seem to have enough time to do everything I want.

All those years I wasted feeling miserable and hungover everyday until I started drinking the rest of everyday away.

Day 8 today, technically. But I've chosen Pi Day as my sobriety date because how awesome is that?

I'm jittery and can't even address an envelope.

I agree. Sobriety is literally the best thing that ever happened to me
