Today 9 Years No Booze


I've been really slack about giving myself credit for this monumental achievement in my life. Addiction to several chemical substances was the biggest problem I had, however, I have conquered it. I mostly stay in the Newcomers forums and when I read a thread and someone says, "I had 30 days sober and fell of the wagon, this is impossible, I can't do it," my heart goes out to you because that was me. Reading those threads reminds me of just how horrible it was.
I'd like to thank everyone here for taking the time to help the likes of me. Luv you with all my heart.

Congratulations Michael for sharing your continued
sobriety, recovery and presences with us. You, like
all of us, are just a little part of a mosaic, a bigger picture
of us all coming together to form something amazing.

Just like one of many beautiful Roses you share
with us in on your RoseLover Thread.

Your recovery achievement is an inspiration
to all those just beginning their own journey,
bringing hope that a sober life is achievable when
we do the footwork necessary each day.

And to know that we never have to go thru
anything in life alone or by ourselves while
on this remarkable and humbling journey.

A gift that keeps on giving.

Love ya. Nefer..!!!!
