9 months!

Today marks 9 months (273 days) since I gave up alcohol after nearly 30 years of drinking (the last 10 of those daily).

For those of you still struggling, don't EVER give up. If this old dog can do it, then so can you!

Thanks to everyone at SR for helping me on this journey.

Congratulations!! And thanks for the words of encouragement. Without the wisdom of those here who have quit, I never would have made it this far.
Thank you.

Awesome FBL, congrats on 9 months
And good message too...this just shows that it is possible and never too late to change things, even after 30 years
