6 months today

I know I do not post too often but please know I do read daily.

Somehow I have 6 months today. With the exception of my pregnancy--this is the longest I have ever gone without drinking. With the issues surrounding my daughter's illness--life is still a stressful crazy one--not drinking hasn't changed that.

But, there is no problem or issue that alcohol will make better--only worse.

Thanks everyone for being here and posting as you do. SR is one of many tools I use daily.

Peace to all of you.

That's so fantastic. It feels good not being enslaved to such a destructive substance, doesn't it?

Way to go!

Thanks everyone for your kind words. Today is six months AND one day. For all those struggling, just don't drink today. You can always worry about tomorrow then.
