Finally found my feet CHECKING IN DAY 240


Good evening from the UK guys,

I've been a member of the forum for a few years now and had many failed attempts. Things seem to be coming together now though. This is the longest I've ever been alcohol free by a long distance.

Everything that's promised is true. The family life, health, work life, weight loss etc all start to improve slowly from the very beginning but things become noticeable from around the 3 month mark,

I'm here to stay on the sobriety run now so thanks for having me over the years,

Merry Christmas and a happy new year,

Bruno

That's wonderful news, Bruno. It took me a while to let go too - but now we're free.

240 days seems impossible at my stage of sobriety.

I can only dream/hope.

Inspirational.
