This is a fabulous Class with many wise people - very happy that found us.

SR has been my only source of support. I find that it works best if you visit very frequently and read and post and respond to posts.

Joining a Class is a great idea. I hope that you stick around this Class.

You might also want to consider joining the Class of October 2014 where you will find people who are 'where' you are at this point in your sobriety.
Hi Memra.

I guess we are confusing you...Leigh may have meant the October 2015 class:

But of course we love having you here with us as well. Congratulations on 41 days; that's wonderful!

Thank you my darling Leigh!!!!

And thank you Mark and Arbor for your lovely words....I am the only person on this side of the globe whose anniversary is the 27th, so I will post the milestones later on, but I had to share!

And it's about to be Briar's anniversary as well. Is it 8 months Briar?

So happy to be here with you all; so grateful to be one year sober!!

Yeah, eight months tomorrow. I always have mixed feelings on my anniversaries. Obviously I'm very grateful, but it still burns to reflect on where I was when I started. I guess I can't appreciate where I am now without holding it in contrast with where I was eight months ago and the roller coaster that followed. The start of this journey was pretty terrible, and I'm not quite over the shame and disgust about where I was. I feel guilty for what I put my family and friends through, especially now that I can really see it through clear eyes. My friend who helped me always congratulates me on my anniversaries, but I really can't even look him in the eye when he does. I hope someday soon I will be able to truly celebrate.

That time will come, sweet Briar. In the meantime, I hope you know how very, very proud we are of you.

Congratulations on your well-earned anniversary.

I hope you never forget how bad all of that felt Briar. It will keep you safe.
The shame will recede, but the memories of how truly scary things became (for me too) are there for our protection.

Your friends and family are proud of you. We are proud of you. And love you so much!


on 8 months!!!

Oh, and about your friend Mike; I am SO sorry.
I think the secretary is probably in recovery love, and that's why she said what she said...

Strong work Briar. Congrats to you as well. Much deserved. You are also an inspiration.

I felt at nine months sober perhaps similar. I wasn't sure if in fact my life was better. Hard to appreciate. Of course I could compare...the rest is history and here I am giving it another go.

You'll get there. Just keep chipping away at it. Your doing awesome things friend.

V your year is incredible, especially considering how much you've been challenged. You've met it all with the tenacity that shows your resolve to live sober. You're an inspiration.

We inspire each other...every day. And care for each other, and support each other, and listen to each other. That is huge. I could not and would not be doing this without all of you. ♥

Amazing, isn't! We've never laid eyes on one another, but we're like a family.

We need each other. It's what this process is all about. I do not see how anyone could go at it alone.

Rough night with the baby. I spoke too soon. This too shall pass...gotta run. Night all...

Could be...drooling lots, but don't see or feel anything. Wife has been trying for three hours to put him down. Ahhh well. Disturbed baby sleep is way better than drunken sleep...

Poor little guy. Has he ever had an ear infection?
