600 days


Substantial, solid. Feels really good. I'm not on SR much these day , but if anyone who doesn't know me wants to see the story of someone who fell many many times but finally got it right just take a look back at my history here.

Only good things come from giving up the drinking game. Permanent sobriety solves so many things, gives freedom, peace and strength. Life is still difficult and filled with struggle, tragedy and pain. But it's a better, much much better, life.

You are certainly a valuable asset to us here at SR.
