2010: A New Beginning

I'm in. Are you? A new year. A fresh chance. In truth, everyday is a fresh chance, but when a new year turns, it might give some a little more incentive to stay sober. I hope it will for me. I look forward to the challenge and the new beginning. Here's to a positive and strong 2010 for us all.

I'm in. Four months under my belt, but I'd absolutely LOVE to make 2010 my first FULL year.

Thanks for starting this thread, ThirstforLife! And a HAPPY, sober and fulfilling New Year to you.

Count me in. I am two days sober today and I believe that I am going to make 2010 an officially alcohol free year. Done playing around.

Count me in.
I agree with unbrokenchain, dates are important.
Sober since my relapse July 31st, but like the ideal of a new year and new beginning.

Let's do this. Strength in numbers my friends. If one of us falls...we pick 'em up, dust 'em off, and carry on. 2010...here we come.

Maybe you guys can start a 2010 support thread in the forums? We have an August thread that we have been keeping alive for 5 months now. It is great to keep in touch with everyone and really get to know people who are all in the same place in recovery. Just a suggestion. I am 52 days sober right now, and let me tell you, it keeps getting better!

I started out the new year by cleaning out 2 closets --let go of the old and leave room for the new the less clutter in my life the less clutter in my brain

Me too! 2 days in. I know if I'm posting here in 12 months time I'm going to be in a much better place physically and mentally.

Day 3 here for me. Feeling strong (but a bit foggy-headed). Going to do this.
