Thank you SR


30 days today without a drop of alcohol and I cannot think of any real fun without being sober. Once you learn to have sober fun you realise how much life you were wasting.

I want to thank SR. I want to thank you special people for helping me open my eyes. I am a stranger to you but still you supported me. Some of you might remember my first posts, just about a month ago.

I remember you all, even if I don't say the names. I remember you.

If you are reading this post and have not joined SR yet, I suggest that you do it now and start communicate with some of the most fantastic people I have found in my life.

I am thinking how strange ... you visit a website and it changes your life. We can change the world and help other people if we decide we want to.

Have a lovely weekend people. 5th Weekend Sober, Yeah!

Congratulations, I'm right behind you (24 days). Keep coming back, I know I will. I got to 5 months last time and then lost the focus. I won't let that happen again.

Happy sober Friday night

One month - wow, look at you go! It'll keep getting better, icanwin. Thank you for the nice compliment, and for being part of SR. We all need each other.

ICanWin, I still like your username! Well done, and that was a very nice post there. Keep exhorting the lurkers to sign up and get on with what you have found. And keep posting here, it's nice, isn't it?
