It' s official, I have doubled my life expectancy!

28 years sober today!

I was 28 years old when I entered into the sober life, there was no way I would have lived through that year. No one, including me thought I would live to see my 30th birthday. My Son woke me up with a text telling me how proud he is of me, if that's not the good life, I don't know what is!

Peace, Cathy

If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, another 28 years is quite likely.
