Anyway, feeling very grateful for eight years of my life that I would have lost if I hadn't made the decision to say goodbye to alcohol for good. Not drinking has never been a struggle for me (apart from maybe the first days/weeks), but living life sober has had its challenges! I feel like I recently finally passed a plateau I've been on for the past few years. Feeling more centered and present on a daily basis.

Thanks to all of you for being part of my journey. What I learned in Al-Anon has helped me on a daily basis in coping with the other people in my life--alcoholic or not.
That is fantastic, Lexi!!! You've done well, and thank you for your synopsis. I'm so happy for you :-)

That's awesome, Lexie! Congratulations!! You are a wonderful inspiration here and a valued poster.

Those 8 years are a wonderful 'foundation' for the rest of your life.

(See, some foundations ARE good!!)

Blessings,
