Checking In just because...

Life is going really well, not perfect everyday but I don't remember being this satisfied with it.

I'm still fairly active with a normal 5 miles of just moving around in addition to the gym and kayaking.

I don't keep track of the exact day any longer and still only worry about now/today and try not to think down the road.

I just calculate the dollar amount I haven't spent on the beer and holly $%^&*() that $20 a day adds up.

That is awesome stuff C0ntr0ls. My $30+ per day habit was financially debilitating. I knew it conceptually but within a few months of getting sober, I miraculously had money in my bank account and no longer had to worry about how I was going to afford other things. I was north of $1,000 per month and that is not counting ANY of the horrible financial decisions I would make when drunk. I thought when I got sober Amazon.com and the fast food places near me would surely all go out of business.
