4 years and counting...


Iíve been sober now for 4 years today and want to tell the newcomers donít give up and to stay positive. Each day will bring new challenges- which I also encounter - but alcohol will always take a backseat for me.

Iíve found a bunch of new hobbies and new groups of sober friends that bring me happiness. Iíve also found that helping my friends and neighbors with home projects and repairs gives me satisfaction knowing that Iím helping people - I look at it as doing good for all the bad Iíve done. This helps me deal with my guilt of the past.

I hope all of you find the wonderful SOBER life which Iíve found and always remember to not give up!!
