29 years yesterday

Post by positrac » Fri Nov 02, 2018 7:45 am

Wow that is totally amazing and I am so humble I have been given this precious gift of sobriety.

The only small piece of suggested advice to anyone struggling is if you have the desire to stop drinking and or using then you really need to make the same aggressive efforts that drive you to use, to stay sober and find winners in the rooms and work the steps and learn to live free of addictions.
Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.

Woohooo! Congrats

And many more my friend! To the newcomer YES! I too had to learn day by day. I really wanted some sort of magic potion that would free from alcohol altogether and be done! What I found was something better than I expected... a simple program of daily actions I could take. No magic ~ it works IF and WHEN you work it!

We share with each other what worked as The Solution. You can trust us to tell you the Truth. I say:
Simple but not easy
Program of Action
Work the Steps
Life or Death... You choose
