Hello, my name is kaila and i am an addict. I have not had a drink since December 10th of last year, and before that it had been 2 years since i drank. I have recently started attending NA meetings, with my boyfriend to show him support but also because i have realized i lost all of my friends, because i try to avoid everyone and everything from my previous lifestyle. Probably not healthy. Anyways i am new to this and have a question.

I have always occasionally smoked pot, but i have not smoked in months, just not sure on the exact date. I want to be as honest with myself and others as possible about my clean date, but i don't know when i can start being proud of my huge accomplishment, i am pretty bummed.. any suggestions?

Hi and welcome aubogirl

I know some people who have separate dates for various things.
Thats one option.

I just go with the one date from which I've been clean from everything.

If you want to do that and you're not sure when that date was...maybe pick a date that is memorable, or means something to you, and one that you feel is an honest representation of your recovery time?
