Congrats. You are an inspiration to us all!

I have noticed lately by members stories that anxiety was many, many times a precursor to quitting. It was for me as well.

Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring story! I'm on Day 3 and it's been rough this afternoon. The hardest part of the day has passed, thankfully!

I love the above quote you made and I hope you don't mind if I borrow from it in my signature. I've been trying to think of something that will help me. "Drinking as an option is no longer and option." I think that will be a perfect reminder that...well, it's no longer an option. I almost made it one today, but like you, I'm eternally grateful I didn't! Thank you, God!

Congratulations on your success! Keep going!

Thanks you guys. Everyone here has helped me stay sober now 1 year and 2 days

Feel free to use it givingup, but I can't say I coined the phrase. Probably came from a wise man on here named Dee
