Three months


This journey in early sobriety the past 90 days clean and sober at SR ,

...I'll never forget.



In my Season (decade? ) of Hell, one of the many things I never had;.... was one single day of serenity. Only days occasionally less chaotic than others.

Today, at 3 months; I'm grateful for moments, ...sometimes hours, of a feeling of inner strength and peace.

Finally learning to live, .... in the present



Thank y'all for making SR what it is,

A constant source of support in my recovery

Right on Topspin!


A huge congratulations on your 90 days of sobriety! I can totally relate to what you say about "only having days that are less chaotic than others." I'm only on day 20, but it's already such a relief to have peaceful days.

Your post also gives me something to look forward to: moments of serenity. I'm getting small glimpses of those now, but like you say I look forward to hours of them!

Once again, Congratulations!
