1 year today

Post by Niagara »

Do I get my first shoes yet? :lol:

What a Year. Ups, downs, highs and lows, and just ok's. I love the just ok's. I never had those before in my life. Just to feel ok in my own skin...what a gift.

I was at my home group last night. So many nice things were said that I got all choked up. Couldn't have done any of it without you guys on here, because this is where I started, barely off the drink, everything so horribly out of control.

Grateful to all the people I met along the way....especially my sponsor who took me out of that meeting when I was so desperately low, and set me on my feet again. He loved me enough to tell me the truth :)

Thanks for the fellowship all x

I love the just ok's.
Thats a great adjustments we all go through. That tells me we are not selfish and self-centered anymore. Great job on the anniversary Niagara. People like you keep me inspired.

My homegroup and I celebrated my 1st birthday 3 months early.

That's how cool I am.

I lied about my sobriety date. Eventually I 'fessed up though. Mrs Tosh said "When everyone was giving you cards and cake and telling you how wonderful you are, I bet you felt a right tit!" :lol:

Well done, Niagra.
