Hello again

Hello,

I used to post here a few months back and I've been away for a bit. I haven't drank at all and now have stopped for 18 months, I'm quite hopefull because I think this year has been the most stressfull ever so it's all up hill from here right?

Anyway, I hope you're all well

Did the board change, I had to re-register, it doesn't matter I just wondered

Welcome! Yes, there was a server crash in April and I guess many memberships were lost. And the management decided to upgrade the boards while making repairs!
Congratulations for your 18 months!
Awesome

Hi Dinosaur, Good to meet you. Glad you're doing well. Isn't the world a better place sober? I love it - I really do hope I never forget what things used to be like for me. The only way is up - and you're only beaten when you're Tim Henman.

Deg.

Hello, I'm back again. Nearly three years now - not a drop.

Are you dreading Christmas as much as I am?

How are you all doing?

Sorry hope I didn't know you'd replied.

How are you?

How's NYC?

I stopped the olympic lifting and have beeen doing bodybuilding instead. It helps me relax and sleep well

Nearly 6 years now, still trundling along :-)

That must be 10 years since I quit then. It's been ok, I dont think i'll start again. I'm glad I stopped. If you're reading this and have just stopped, it'll be fine, just don't drink and let whatever happens happen.

Ten years!!!! Incredible.

Thank you for your post, it's a great inspiration and a great proof that what seems impossible is actually possible.

Have a great day)

I spoke too soon. After 10 years of not drinking I started again and drank for another three years. Three relationships and about 6 jobs later I've stopped again now - 6 months today.

Welcome back, Dinosaur

Many years ago I had 6 sober years under my belt and then relapsed for about 22 years

I am back with 2 1/2 years sober!

You are not alone
