Congrats Anthony & welcome to SR. I was so skeptical of AA at first but after hearing/seeing so many success stories of people who actually WORKED the steps I'm convinced.

Always good to hear from a fellow AA.

Especially one who has thrown down and done the work and is reaping the benefits.

It works if you do 😃

Congratulations on your 1 year milestone

Anthony, as I've asked others with long term sobriety, please post on this Newcomers forum as often as you can. It really helps people like me. Seeing a sober future more than just today is so important I think. I am ok dealing with things one day at a time, but seeing success down the road really helps us. Thank you for posting.
