seven years

Today is the seventh anniversary of my not drinking. No one's noticed, except me, and I'm pretty happy about that. Instead, I've been enjoying myself living my ordinary life.

And that's pretty cool.

Thanks, Purpleknight.

Anna, yes it is nice. I admit the last year has been probably the hardest one for me since I've been sober. But I've managed to get through it without a drink.

That is fantastic! Everyone in my 3d life has no idea how big of a deal this was for me. No acknowledgement of milestones and I like it that way.
