@happyguy– Commit to this being your last Day 1. U really can do this. Sounds like it’s long overdue. Stay close- Stay strong and string some AF days together. We got your back. We are here and we’re rooting for ya!
@Ladyhawke– Hats off to 1 year.🎩🎩 It feels good. A milestone. I like to pick milestones or goal days if you will. I’m moving toward 400. Day 379 today. Congrats on your year👍- AF – the journey continues for us all!⌛Stay Strong!
@AprilsFool– your post hit home for me as I am 65 and 1 year sober. Part 2 is here for us and it will be much better sober. I chose not to have children as well. Leave the past behind and live your best life now. We all get lonely sometimes. You can be alone in a crowd. Keep moving forward as you’ve always done. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Stay strong – stay AF! Good Luck.
@Morgan – thanks for that great list! Sobriety is the only way to go. You are so right when you say a real life – a free life cause that’s what it is! Once you start putting the days together- you’ll see!
Day 365 today. I made it. My head is clear and my heart is full for all of you! Living Sober pulled me through the tough times and I’m so grateful. Thank you. Now the really really hard part starts—-Staying Sober!
Very nice, mmskinny! Congrats on your one-year. Such a big milestone. And as for staying sober, I remember when every day I ended up feeling compelled to get wrecked….never want to go back to that. Not everyone can pull themselves out of that abyss, but we did it!
Big congrats to the both of you @winner and @mmskinny! Fantastic work and a great accomplishment. Work it is! I can only imagine how pleased you both must be. I’ll get there one day. You show me that it’s very possible,
@Winner Doing well. Sober anniversary 2 days away. 8/10/19. It’s been a long year but a good one. Thanks for your support and for being there. We celebrate sobriety together as our journey continues. Stay strong as I will!
Day 352. WOW! I never believed I could do it. It’s been tough. The countdown to 1 full year AF is really happening. I’m very grateful to LS as you all have been an inspiration as well as a friend when I needed one most. Thank you.
@Winner@Morgan Day 349 totally AF! The year is so close. It’s been a great year but a tough year. I never really believed I could do it. Thanks to you guys and Living Sober- I am almost there. The journey continues for us all. THE COUNTDOWN begins- will be quite a milestone for me.⏳⏰
@phoenix0407 – sounds like you have all the reasons in the world to put alcohol in your rearview. Wishing reasons made it easy. As you know, it won’t be easy but it will be worth it. I’m Day 344 today. You can do this and we can help. The first days are nail biters. Stick with LS and the days will turn to weeks. We’re all on the AF journey together. Good Luck.
@Lars I have played the moderation game so many times- I lost count. As you know, it absolutely NEVER works. AF is the only way to go. This WILL be your last day 2. I know it. DAY 344 for me. The journey continues for us both. Good Luck-
If you could control your drinking, you would have years ago. Me too. We cannot. Moderation turns into the same old same old. Every single time. Believe me, I’ve tried and tried and tried. NEVER WORKS. Save yourself the inevitable pain and heartache. AF is the only way to go. Good luck.
You made the right choice plus you came to the right place. You can do this. Congrats on starting day one – day 333 for me! The sober life is a great life. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it. Good luck.
DAY 200! Hooray for me! THANKS to all the folks at Living Sober who gave me a shout out or a response to my writings. its been a long road and appreciate all the support! Living Sober has helped me live sober and I love you all.
Day 176 and it feels so good! 4 days from the 6 month mark. As the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months- i’m hoping the months turn into years! With the support from Living Sober everything is possible. Thank you for being there. 💟
I think my age -I’m 64 – played a part in my mindset. I basically just got sick of the hangovers. I had a one last terrible nite of over indulgence and that morning 8/10/18 – I said no more -I’m done. There’s been hard times but I go back to that nite and the memory of how awful it was- pushes me through- Whatt about u? Any strategy?
