Good morning to you all my wonderful, supportive friends and thank you for your kind words. Can this really me that you are writing about??

What a lovely thing to say Nel, thank you my dear Undie friend.

Elegantly wasted, thank you too and remember 8 months isnít so far behind me in the grand scale of life, so letís keep it going.

You too Snwflower, Iím so grateful for your post.

Heath, I am very grateful to have you as my friend and youíre on the same side of the water as me! Yay, just down the motorway.

Aww thank you WWG and I think 55 days is a massive achievement, sometimes I wonder how you put up with my with all the ear-ache and nagging I give you, youíve helped keep me strong.

Samwich and thank you too.

Thank you Least, so very much.

God Steve, you actually brought tears to my eyes! There have been times on our journey when you have held me up too and I thank you for that.xxx

Thank you Hevyn, Iím just so grateful that I found you all.

Thanks Dee and thanks for your ongoing support and wise words. You always just know the right things to say.

Thank you Oll, youíre my gardening buddy! Thanks for all your support.

Thank you Stairs for always understanding and congratulations also on your 9 months, my fellow August class mate.

EVERYBODY, MY AUGUST CLASS MATE, THE LOVELY , INTELLIGENT, WISE AND FUNNY STAIRS, HAS 9 MONTHS TODAY.

Thank you Deeker and thanks for your brilliant 24 hr thread, itís the best!

And you too Optivotal, many thanks for your support.

XXXXXX

Iím still a bit overwhelmed by all this but youíve all really made my Monday something special. Iím so happy to be sharing my journey with you all and I would never have made it this far without you, my virtual family.
There have been a lot of changes over the last 9 months and it has by no means been easy, thereís been good days, bad days and very bad days, but no pain, no gain and believe me the pain is worth it, I never, ever thought I would get this far and I truly believe now, thanks to the inspiration I have found here on S.R, that I, too, can do this. I will do this.
For me the best things is that at last I am honest with myself, itís like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Iíve finally accepted that yes, Iím an alcoholic, I canít drink, simple as! Just the way I wake up in a morning without that dreadful guilty feeling in my stomach and not panicking about trying to remember if Iíve disposed of all my empty wine bottles, trying to go over the previous days actions in my head, makes it all worthwhile.
I love being sober and Iím even beginning to love me, I have my dignity back and Iíve also found the sense of humour that Iíd lost somewhere along the way.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, for my life, for everything.

Gxxxx
