great job least and i ask myself would drinking improve the situation whenever i'm tempted and it is always a no and i learned it here so kudos to sr.

i joined in feb. of 08 myself.

quit once for 100 days. quit another time for around 60 days.

i'm currently over 6 and 1/2 months.

i feel much better and more cognizant of things this time around. maybe it takes some of us more than one quit time. this place has truly been a godsend for me.

the other day i posted this as my facebook status:

my life is so good right now i keep looking over my shoulder waiting for the 'bundy curse' to blindside life ever supposed to be this good???

i've done so much good in my 6 months i can't believe it. i've got our bills straightened out better than they have been in many, many years. maybe to an o.c. level but hell, i'll trade that for drinking any day of the week.

major kudos to you my brutha....i am in no way special and the third time has apparently been a charm for me. maybe the repeated attempts by you is normal. it is to me!!!

Least, I'm just catching up on here - want to add my congratulations & encouragement! I've seen you struggle and rise above it all. "Normies" can't possibly understand what we go through - that's why our friendships here are so vital to recovery. We aren't alone any more.

You help many every day - probably hundreds that we never know about read our words of hope. I'm glad you posted your thoughts for others to benefit from. May each day get brighter for you.

Congrats on 103+ days, Least!

I think looking back on past sober attempts with regret is self-defeating and could leave you vulnerable to weak moments with a 'why bother' attitude.

Try not to regret the past - it's made you the person you are today. Good for you.
