@Nullo: :( pie

Seriously though, good job. Addiction is one of the most wicked fights a human can undertake. There’s no bigger opponent than yourself sometimes, and… you’re winning! lol

Trillian's avatar

Well done. I applaud anyone who makes an active effort to stop allowing a substance to control them. May I add – keep it up – and not be taken in a negative light? Please accept my sincerest congratulations!

THANK YOU ALL for your wonderful responses; although I did it for myself, I am happy to know it does make a difference; we each affect the world with what we do even if its not obvious…but knowing someone cares is a huge boost…just got home from another great meeting, and I am ready for some of those nachos!!
@DominicX ; I was thinking of putting that on my list.
@bob_ ; that has happened; I know a guy that celebrated his first 30 days with some O’Douls, ( he thought it was safe) and that was it for him…

Nullo's avatar

@DominicX As if you’re old enough to drink. :P

Zen_Again's avatar

A nicer version of A.

Happy for you.

In a way it does matter to me as I know first hand what alcoholism and even drug abuse can do to ruin lives. If you are able to see your way through to a cleaner and happier life for 6 years, that is indeed a wonderful thing and I applaud your efforts!

A friends (in the program) brother yesterday was involved in this..(click avatar) Driving too fast on a country gravel road, into the ditch, rolled and up and over a fence. Driver gets 3 intoxicated assault felony charges.( and some stitches) Her brother has a collapsed lung, several broken bones including hip, swelling in the brain. He responds to basic nerve tests, but is not conscious. He is 22. Other passenger has broken hip, back, and plastic surgery to put the skin back on his forehead. I thank God I never did this, and never will. I pray you don’t either. Jen says; “If you have to drive drunk, stick to Mario Kart”

Thank you for sharing your celebration of this important accomplishment with us all.

It took guts for you to make the changes you made and determination to persist with them.

For those of us struggling to overcome additions, your example should serve to encourage others to keep working towards their own important goals.

Aster's avatar

Good for you ; you made the right decision. Enjoy your sober life!
I know it wasn’t easy so you’ve shown your strength.
