Thanks for the positive post! Yep, it is amazing how much better life is when you are sober. I am going through the loss of a pet right now, so my life is pretty painful, but I wouldn't trade the respect for myself that I am feeling right now dealing with life on it's own terms. (I guess. But this really hurts)
You sound like a fun person - esp on Thanksgiving! Keep going forward - you are doing great! Take care, and have a great(er) Sunday!
