Well, hey! Fellow Georgian here. In fact, I think there's a couple of us. So double welcome.
Congratulations on six months sober. That is awesome.
You've found a great spot. For support, and to share what's working for you to stay sober.
Great to have you onboard.
Oh, and we both have Ghost in our name! How cool is that coincidence?

Welcome to the family CG. Six months sober is great. And for support along the journey, come here often to read and post. Lots of insight here.

You have some great time under your belt, CG, and I'm glad that you have come to join the group. I joined SR at 5 months of no drinking and am so happy that I did, as it has helped me to press forward in my own recovery in many ways, including getting past some difficult things. We're looking forward to hearing more from you in the time ahead and how you yourself have managed to become a sober person.
