Goat_has_6_months_on_Sunday!


I had to let the world (well SR is to me) know that my friend Goat is going to be SIX months sober this Sunday.
So let's see if we can bring him out of hiding and let him know what a great achievement this is. Maybe he'll even share a recipe with us ?
I know he has helped me a lot in staying on track. Thank you.

I guess I'm going to have to keep bringing this back to the top until he realizes that he does have a fan club (and we haven't even heard him play the guitar yet )

Here, Saphie - I'll help bump it up. Sorry I didn't see this when it was first posted.

Goat, I always enjoyed your posts and hope you'll come back and talk to us some more. At 6 mos. sober I started feeling really good and less anxious about everything. Hope you're feeling great today.

hahaha! Thanks for cluing me in Saphie! Everybody's trying to congratulate me and here I am -->

I check the recipe thread every day, but I haven't been in newcomers much lately cause I got addicted to facebook for a while... Let's hope I don't have to set a FB sobriety date

Thanks everyone! Y'all have helped me stay on track and I owe so much to you guys!

-Goat

p.s. Horselover - the recipe thread is still alive, it's just in the cafe now

Letting everyone hear me play the guitar would reduce the number of friends I have :-D
