1Year no alcohol

I can not believe I made it a year…no alcohol! Did it with family and friends support! And lots of running… lost 30 pounds.
Still stayed social but knew when it was time to go home. Lots of reasons to want a drink…pet dying, work stress, holidays, trips, celebrations…It is still hard everyday!


Congrats on a year!!

Congratulations on the year my friend!! :star_struck:


You say that it is still hard everyday…but ultimately life is hard. But living sober is easier. You deal with the situation and move on to the next one. Drinking causes us to hold onto the pain and just add more on top of it.

You’re doing great. Please post more often. I suspect you have lots of advice and wisdom to share with the group.

Niiiice job😊

Congrats! :tada::confetti_ball::balloon: I had 8 months once and remember how good it was to have sobriety as my normal. Yes, I always struggle with the social battle of not drinking. But, we can walk away feeling good about ourselves instead of guilty! So sick of the guilt and here I am starting over again in my first week. That’s okay. Already I am experiencing “real sleep” and it is heaven!

Congrats @Letsdothis ! Thanks for the inspiration!
