On This Day 2 Years Ago


I did what I did most Saturdays. My wife went to work and I was mixing a drink by 10:00am.

I killed most of a 5th + beer by that night and also found out a friends wife commited suicide due do alcoholism. No one but close family had any idea. This affected me. I found out around noon and was drunk by then.

I was on the verge of admitting to myself I had lost control. Started reading here shortly after and starting posting by April.

Its so nice to be in control today. Looking back it was sad scary times. Day 213.

That's terrible about your friends wife, it is a tribute to her in a way that she contributed to you getting sober.

Congratulations on 213 days, fantastic.

WOW! Thank you for sharing and congratulation on your sobriety. I look forward to moving through "the weeds" and getting where you are today, 1 yr sober.
