300 days!

Just wanted to check in and let everybody here know what a blessing it is to live life sober. I spent 10 years as a daily drinker and the 20 before that as a weekly binge drinker. I thought for sure that I would die a hopeless drunk...but instead I had one moment of clarity and it literally saved my life. I can't imagine ever going back to that bondage again, but yet I know I'm always just one drink away.

Here's to another "one day at a time!"

Nice work! If I make it through today, it will be 7 days for me. I feel pretty good about that, so you should feel 42.86x better than me!
