Birthday Celebrations

Just gotta tell you all that I turned 53 yesterday and it was the first time since I was 15 yr old that I haven't had a Drink to celebrate my Birthday!

Usually I would have been comatosed at the end of the night with a Whopping hangover the next day, instead I celebrated with Coffee and had a cosy night in front of the TV....

Happy Birthday, Kitey! I just hit the big 54, myself, a couple weeks ago. My first sober birthday in awhile was last year when I turned 53 (got sober a few weeks after 52).

Heh, it hurts to think I'll probably never get that 50-year chip, but I'm glad to be sober before I'm a little old lady drunk!

This is exactly what I needed to hear (read?). My birthday is in a few weeks, and I have been really nervous because ever since I turned 21 (I'll be 28 this year), I have not had a sober birthday. There was a part of me that was trying to justify drinking on my birthday, but that is just stupid. I cannot and willnot do it. And, knowing that there are so many others out there that can do it, I know that I can too.

Happy Birthday and thank you for the strength to stay sober!!
