Default Recovery Birthdays, Celebrations, Special Day's and Occasions

Just wanted to leave a quick note that I have been clean 21 years today!!

I nearly forgot!! LOL

Either May 7th or May 26th!! A lot of things were going on 21 years ago, but I know it is one of those two dates!!

Besides, I need a reason to celebrate and feel good about myself!! So this year, I am celebrating on the 7th!!

Thumbs up

Well Congrats! I celebrated 30 days clean and sober on the 29th of April! Had two years in '98 but went back out to do some research - ! Believe me it hasn't gotten any better out there! So here I sit as a retread! But as a good friend told me "don't worry about the years, just do it a day at a time"!

21 years is just a long string of 24 hours put together.

30 days is much to celebrate!!! I am proud of you!

I will look forward to a 60 day Post or PM from you!!!

This is my 14th year of sobriety. Sure has been a long rode cause I still miss it. No i'm not in a dry drunk. Got a bad liver and i'll only drink when i'm ready to die. Don't need alocohol in my life just want it. Thinks me look at it like a close friend has died. Can't have him back but i'm always thinking of him.

Thumbs up Clean & sober ~ One day at a time

Congratulations rtee, JJT, & Houtex Angel,
I was clean for 4 years & had to go out to relapse also. It is one day at a time & any clean day is cause for congratulations. Because that's all we have. I have been sober this run for 86 days. The camp my husband was just transferred to has 12 step meetings & a SAP program. He is in prison for drug charges so this is our higher power doing for him what he can't do for himself right now. But I truly believe if he trusts & works his program this will be positive for both of our lives & futures. Again I say congratulations to all on a new beginning & a new way of life.

Iam SO proud of all of you that have made amazing changes in your lives!
By reading these posts, it gives me faith.
You have done wonders for yourselves by staying clean, but you have done wonders for those of us who wonder if it really can happen. (Can I say wonder one more time???? LOL)
CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for giving me hope-
