A little over four years ago..

... I joined this forum lost and hurting and so tired of drinking.

I was afraid but I sucked it up and started a topic and told my story. I was absolutely amazed at the response I got and it was then I decided, after the amazing amount of information I received, I would never drink again and I would never change my mind... AVRT.

For those that are interested you can go back and read my very first post and just how utterly amazing the transformation was from the beginning of my post as people wait in and encouraged me and coached me or taught me.

These last four years have been quite a ride with ups and downs, but I put that drink down the evening I joined this group.

Congratulations, Received, that’s awesome! A little over four years.....equals five years, yes?

I can’t believe a year has passed since you wrote your four year post, sobriety rocks!
