Congratulations I’m so happy for you I can’t imagine the feelings your feeling right now. I bet you feel like you conquer the world right now. But the bottom line is you know 1 year clean is the biggest hurdle to overcome and accomplish but you did it. Now don’t stop keep going and along the way don’t forget to help others that having a hard time to reach the level your on
Although, I think one year is a great accomplishment, in the bigger scheme of things, it’s really not. This is a forever type of thing. But I would like to start a thread with little tips that everyone shares on things that help them get through the first year. And I am so grateful to everyone on here, there were quite a few times where people talk to me off the ledge.
Yay! I am proud of you. Don’t forget to also be proud of yourself.
So true. The real goal is to die sober. 🏻 I highly recommend celebrating milestones though.
Congratulations!!! It will be my 1 year on June13th… I can relate to you saying its the difference between heaven and hell… also wishing you would have tried 10 yrs ago. I was talking to a sober friend recently, and said something to that effect, he said, “yea, but you probably wasnt ready…” I said “yea, I was still having fun” 10 yrs ago although still out of control, I had drinking buddies, and hadnt brought my marriage to the brink of divorce. I was sitting in the garage every night getting loaded, and at the time, that was fun for me. Looking back now I realize it was just the beginning of the end. With hindsight vision, I still wouldn’t have done it any other way. I had to hit my rock bottom version of hell to get here. Im glad you’ve come this far and see the light too bro, keep it up
Congratulations! Yep, I can say I wish I would have 10 years ago, but I wasn’t ready either.
This is a great way of explaining the feeling!!
It is a great idea for a thread…this is an active one on the tip topic, but asks for 2 years sober…maybe a new thread of tips from those celebrating a year? Idk…we can always use more tips for sobriety!!
It is a great idea for a thread…and we have several of them like that…here is a popular one you can add to if you want…
Congratulations!! great work
Amazing!! WELL DONE
Wow!!! That’s really great and NICE
That is just remarkable you are not just a work in progress you have actually arrived amen congratulations on your personal challenge
Oh, believe me, I am still a work in progress lol. Major construction, might never be finished.
I was thinking about calling it the toolbox. Where everyone just leaves a short tip of something that help them. We have so much in common, but then again, we all have different circumstances. I thought if everybody left one chip, everybody can come grab a tip that helps.
That’s a cool idea and title. Everyone likes and asks for tips, that’s for sure.
That is amazing, you must be so proud and relieved. Keep up the good work. Enjoy being sober
Bravooo! Congratulations! Keep on going! You’ve already seen it IS worth it!
Sooooo worth it
