500 Days


I thought it was impossible to get passed 3 days without a drink back in Oct 2014, now I've just reached 500 days sober. Proud of myself, which is also a big change. Before I was riddled with shame and fear most days. I'm living proof long term daily drinkers can turn their lives around and stop drinking. WTG ME! lol

500 days
◾43,200,000 seconds
◾720,000 minutes
◾12,000 hours
◾500 days
◾71 weeks and 3 days
◾136.99% of a common year (365 days
