Thanks everyone. Like I kept hearing in early sobriety it really does get better. I'm amazed at the things I've done the last two years which would never had happened if I were still drinking. And thanks to SR. There's so much experience and wisdom here.

And to anyone who is just starting out, keep trying. Never give up. I was a daily drinker for the better part of 40 years. It had become my life. There were a lot of changes to that life which had to be made. It isn't easy but well worth it.

Watching others reach these milestones always touches my heart. Knowing that another one has escaped the grip of the liquid devil means so much to me today for I will never forget the suffering that I or should I say we had when we were drinking.

Hang sober tight JD.

Congrats, amigo.

Sobriety requires a lot of sacrifice, but what we receive in return for giving up alcohol dwarfs the ability to rely on alcohol to numb our emotional pain.

Glad you're here with us.

It's so great to see such long term success. It really gives me hope that I can really truly stay sober.
