Smile Very ecstatic...

Today I am very ecstatic and pleased to say that I have a year in sobriety and recovery. With hindsight the year has flown by very quickly. I hope this doesn't come across as bragging, but it is a very special day for me and hopefully others can see that it is possible to do this if you find a program that works for you and work it and stick to it.

I am very happy to be able to share this day with my friends here and with those in my chosen program of recovery. There has been many good days and many difficult days, but it can be done and at least I know for sure I can make it through absolutely anything without having a drink. Thanks all for letting me share this.

Wes

You have earned the right to brag! Plus, I find it encouraging to see that staying sober can be done. Congratulations on 1 year sober!!!

Congratulations!

What you said reminded me of this:

"I'm not telling you it is going to be easy - I'm telling you it's going to be worth it" ~ Art Williams

You do have bragging rights for one year. Way to go!
