Hey guys! One year anniversary here!


I can't BELIEVE it's been a year. But it has, as of January 6th, 2018.
I just wanted to check back in here. It's so satisfying yet tragic to look back at my profile and see all the posts and the pain and failures and relapses that went on for 5 years. But alas! Success!
I will never drink again!
I mean, life's not perfect like I thought it would be when I got sober....but, it sure is nice to have that fricking controlling a-hole monster out of my life!!
My husband has a one year anniversary too!

Wonderful! So happy for you both. My husband is in recovery, too, and just a few months "behind me" in sobriety- I will have two years next month and him in June. We are so blessed.

Keep going! Year two has been different, interesting, hopeful, challenging and worth it for me.

Congratulations again.
