60 days sober today

No big deal, I know... but it was preceded by 30 years of drinking, and then some. As someone said on this board, there's not one day sober i've regretted. Thanks for the fantastic support. The kindness and generosity of the people here have been inspirational! You've helped me get my mind back, my heart back, and my family back.

Congratulations!! 60 days IS a big deal!! Heck, when I first got clean, I realized ONE day is a big deal, and stringing a few of those together is even better

Hugs and prayers!

To go from 30-something years of drinking to 60 huge days of sobriety and get this back is amazing! Tears came to my eyes when I read this. I love the miracles of recovery.

Congratulations, AWOL!

Thank you all for your VERY kind comments. And yes Least, it does feel good. And yes, Humble Bee, these are miracles of recovery. Thanks to my HP as I understand him. You're all invited to my first alcohol-free party. Bring your own H2O!

Just for Today

AWOL 60 days is unimaginable, a single day is an accomplishment, especially when taking it one day at a time because in reality all we have is today anyhow. Congrats on doing it 60 times in a row!

I remember when I told someone that I had 10 days and they probably didn't understand what it took to get 10 days...and you have 6 times that! That's great...but don't stop.
