Thanks!

It's nice because whatever I'm going through, I know it could be worse if I

wasn't sober. I'm pretty sure I would be in jail right now facing a life

without my son. I'm able to disallow the pushing of my buttons and walk

away. Great freedom.

Looks like I may be backsliding on supertopo oversharing though :)

later!

good work!

here is your 6 month chip,

the miracle is not that i do not drink, but that i have no desire to drink,

the message is hope, the promise is freedom,

and you don't have to climb with a hangover,

1 year in about 2 1/2 weeks. My god what an epic 6 or 7 years it's been. Truly should be dead, or in prison.

Congratulations on the six month mark Treez. As well to you, BVB, in your path.

I've been doing well, no thoughts of drinking or smoking, despite seeing plenty of it on a regular basis. I just got too good a deal when I signed on the dotted line. I hope I never forget that even for a second, because that's all it takes - one second of forgetting my commitment to sobriety - for it to all be over.

Had a good day yesterday. Spent time with the wife enjoying amazing weather, and taking two friends out climbing - one for the first time, the other's first time outdoors. I always enjoy getting the chance to share our amazing sport with others.

There was a time when I couldn't imagine going a day without a drink. My amazing day with my wife and friends marked 15 years sober. Couldn't be more thankful for the luck, support and strength I have received to make sobriety happen for me for so long.
Keep it up everyone - together we can do this.

Solid work Treez, I felt so much stronger after several months off the sauce. First six mo was the hardest, then a lot of smooth sailing in the years since with one or two bad cravings during times of intense stress. Coming up on five years?(IIRC) in March, along with Jaybro in the same time frame. Originally planned on a year's break, finally admitted to myself that going back on it would be like before, but worse, and it was easy to stay off it at the year mark.

Little things, like this thread, can be a big help. It helped me, many times. When I finally quit, I was struggling, and Linda and Jay had words of encouragement when I really, really needed it. More than they realize, I bet.

Hmmm , I didn't realize. Linda probably did, she's smarter than me. You seemed pretty on top of things, I took inspiration from you!

Hard to believe it's been almost five years!

Yes, thanks to Hankster, for one of this site's most positive threads.

Met a woman on Day 21 the other day, who was so clearly flying on a Pink Cloud I felt giddy for her. What a time those early days were, when each experience seemed to be a first time one, and life was filled with mystery and magic. Glad I can recall having those feelings all these years later. I got a very good deal, when I signed on the bottom line of committing to getting sober.

Feeling really down and just want to "escape", and not through alcohol other means. Yesterday was good but today I seem to not get that damn breakup behind me. Lonely and feeling hopeless, these happening on more days than not.
Hell I do everything people say to do and it just isn't working; I volunteer, workout, go to therapy but still in the sh#t can.
I want to get out of my house, go out to JT but still not sure If I can climb due to my foot issues. Am able to ride my bike and religiously doing so. Hope that venting here some of you guy/women can offer some insight. I don't think I am an addict, have no desire to drink, like I said above other means that I rarely indulge in-too afraid I might end up having to use on a regular basis.
Frankly, just want to sleep and not wake up.
