Two years


Today or tomorrow is two years. It's hard to feel overjoyed about it with what's going on on the world. I've been working the whole time so it hasn't affected me as much as others but last night my sister called me and said my mom is sick. Cough, etc.. I hope shes ok but time will tell I guess. Like others have said thank goodness I'm sober for all of this. Hope everyone is staying safe healthy and sober.

There is room for celebration and sorrow in the same person at the same moment.

Not only room for it, but it is unavoidable.

Big congrats on your two years sober. Prayers for your Mom.

Congrats on 2 years.

I have 3 packs of musinex in the cupboard in case we need to try and heal up at home.

Cough expectorant to make those dry coughs more productive.

Lots of fluids as well.

Let the temperature cook away the sick.

Hope this helps is some way.

Love y'all.

Thanks.

Accord, I hope your Mom is okay.

And, do take the time to smile and pat yourself on the back. Well done!

Huge, huge, huge. Great job. Its so much better not drinking. I have been working also and I usually just come home and chill in the house in the winter so nothing had changed at all for me till my state made a mandatory stay at home. Now I lost my job yesterday and my wifes is teetering. Probably wont last long if this keeps up. Congrats on not drinking and having a job still.
