Wow thanks everybody!
And good on you GWP too. I know you had to tough out some difficult moments.

Right now I am feeling the most secure with my sobriety than at any point since I had that last drink and it feels great.

Lots of work ahead - but lots of work done too

As one of the Senior Members of SR, it is my pleasure to present each of you with a well-earned 90 day pin...I'll try not to draw blood.

One for you, Guywithpie


And, here's yours, Octoman

The dot in the middle is you.
If you keep God (the letter G) in one hand and AA (the letters AA) in the other hand, you won't have a hand to pick up a drink

Congratulations to both of you...well done! If you belong to a group, this is usually the time you are "shoved out of the nest" for speaking commitments and other AA-related responsibilities on behalf of the group.

For those unfamiliar with the AA 90-day pin:

The idea and design of an AA pin was dreamed up by a New Jersey member who had 100 run off by hand and presented them to friends in the movement and to all sincere incoming members of his group. That was about 1945. Eventually, the supply ran out, but the idea of an AA pin intrigued members everywhere, and the demand for more persisted.
So the design was copyrighted, and distribution of the pins was undertaken by the AlAnon Association, 384 Seventh Ave., Newark, NJ, which is comprised exclusively of members of Alcoholics Anonymous in good standing in their respective groups. Next, a custom was started among many groups of presenting a pin to each member as he or she achieved three months of continued sobriety. In a little ceremony, the group chairman made the presentation or the sponsor, at the start of the meeting with the admonition to "Wear It With Honor." This means, simply, that in case of a "slip" the member is honor bound to leave off wearing the pin until he or she has again achieved three months of unbroken sobriety

The manufacture and distribution of the pin is entirely in the hands of AA's
