One year sober.. we did it!

Thank you everybody for all of your help. Iíve been on here for more than 5 years and finally got a year. On SR every day. I feel like I know some of you and Iím so thankful. It has been an incredibly hard, wonderful year. Feel so peaceful in the midst of the aftermath of chaos I created. Itís because Iíve learned to be alone without being lonely, to be a 59 year old grown up, and to reflect on my own behavior. AA has also been a great help. For anyone that is struggling. Just make up your mind.. go to a meeting and begin to really live
