That's incredible, Soberwolf! Two years! I'm so happy for you!

I must admit that it's awesome to see another success story. You have not only turned your life around, you've also been a rock to so many others in recovery. Way to go, Soberwolf.

The reason i say this is to stress how bad i wanted to be sober i was willing to do anything if i carried on i wouldnt have lasted much longer

I started going to AA meetings, i went to group therapy 3-4 times a week which really helped, i had acceptance, i was constantly journalling, i was accepted on & passed 2 short college courses in plastering & floorlaying, i always reached out if i felt like drinking i would ring up my sponser & say im having cravings, i made the effort of reconnecting with my family always visiting them & always going the extra mile to get to that good tired

The stuff i learned in meetings will stay with me for life

I found SR at around 13 months last august & i truly believe this is the best resource for recovery hands down it is a phenomenal site for recovery

If i can ever help Surfer just drop a msg bud
WOW!!! First, I want to thank you for taking the time to summarize your story. Sounds like it was some heavy stuff SW, looks like you really hit a "bottom" It's great to see that God intervened in your life and gave your the courage and the tools to make a change and it has.

My situation is not as dire as your's was before you had to make that change. As i stated in my earlier post, I don't want my bottom to have to be that to see that I need a change, that is a long way to travel back from, and I'm glad you were able too. I know and see many stories that don't end with the success you have and I don't want to be one of them. I'm making the change now, I've always known I needed too but have been to prideful to accept that I have to commit to it or the same results will occur and I'm not happy with that at this juncture of my life.

Thanks again for sharing your story and more importantly, congratulations to you for your contribution and service here and to 2 years and counting of sobriety. Looking to follow your example SW

I was going to crack earlier this week and you saved me with a simple offer to shout out to you if I needed more help

You will save me again in time, no doubt.

When I grow up, I want to be like Soberwolf.

Congratulations on your two years and counting Soberwolf

It sounds like you were in the pit and you managed to seriously turn your life around. And get the girl back Props.

I read this thread the other day and it was inspiring. Great determination.
