Whoohoo, I made it to 1 month....

Well it's Jan 4th here, and I have been sober for a whole month.

Firstly I have to thankyou guys from the bottom of my heart, you have been a wonderful support, and I have learned & been inspired so much by your posts and threads

Thankyou to the SR team who set this site up and keep it going, I never knew it existed until 1 day before I quit drinking, this site was the catalyst for change for me, I'd never been able to stop drinking at home before and I was terrified of going a long way from my family to a rehab. This site, with all it's support and information made it possible for me to do this from home, and stay with my lovely supportive husband and our girls.

Life is good, it still has it's ups and downs, but it's more like gentle rolling hills now compared to the old mountain peaks with their suffocating lack of oxygen and gaping craters so deep and dark you think you will never get out.

I hope everyone is having a happy day, and that your journey of recovery gets better and better for you all. :ghug

I honestly think you guys are just awesome, thankyou for all of your lovely posts and congrats. Awwww I've got the warm fuzzies :ghug3

I just feel so gratefull that I have had the support I've needed to get this far, and I'm really excited about 2009, I have had a gut feeling all year that this year was going to be a turning point for myself and my family.

We struggled badly in 2008, Mr Kermit wrecked his shoulder (and he's a builder) I had to have womens surgery that went horribly wrong and I had to have another procedure to fix it, then I had to have heart surgery a couple of months ago. But thankfully Everything has been fixed in the last 2-3 months, and I never doubted that this year would/will be a fantastic step forward for us.

The icing on the cake was stopping drinking and being able to see this year in sober, happy & well.

Life is good, and I count my blessings every day.

I still don't sleep well, and my moods can be a little all over the place sometimes, my eating is getting better.... But I see all of these things as recovery... I am healing.

Thanks heaps again guys for being there for me, and supporting me

Yes, you are healing Kermit!

I love hearing your positive thoughts about SR. This place is my lifeline too and I am always inspired when I come here.

Your great attitude will get you through this. I'm glad that things are turning around for you and your family. I hope that 2009 is an amazing and sober year for you.
