Hi all,

My name is Lewis. I'm an alcohol addict originally from the UK currently living in upstate New York. Currently as of today I am sober for 118 days. Very proud of myself. But as I have this new life started in the States I am pretty much just me and my wife. I have no sober friends so I guess I am here for the friendships and to give support where I can. Won't ramble on too much lol Hi all!

Welcome Lewis! Today's day 118 for me, too! Maybe we're sobriety twins :P

You'll find heaps of support and guidance here. I recommend checking out the forum posts, blogs, and articles often; there are nuggets of wisdom everywhere. And check in when you're able to.

Congratulations on 118 sober days!
