Six Months


Hello All - Checking in here. Six months of Sobriety and it is amazing. I remember clearly those early days with aches and pains and worries. For those looking to get sober, I say go for it! You will feel so much better. When drinking you make excuses for your heart racing and blood pressure too high and weight gain, but once you make it thru those hard months you'll find things taste better, your body feels great, and life is good.

SR is a great resource, use it.

Have a wonderful Sunday all!!
