One Year


Today, I am so grateful for 365 days of sobriety! For those of you who are new and may find the day to day alcohol free life challenging... YOU can do this! I did struggle, a lot (a lot) in the beginning, and for quite a few months.

Now, occasionally I briefly think about having a drink.

It's quite a progression, from lots to none, and I thank SR 100%! You all have helped me immensely with newcomer stories, veteran stories and admin support. Stories of strength, perseverance and determination dominate this board, no matter where the poster is in her/his sobriety journey. I admire that and thank you all so much. I wish for good health and well being for each of you.
