    No sugar racks up 10 years!!!!!

    Your strength and courage shine so bright,
    Your commitment to sobriety is a beacon of light.
    You have come so far in such a short time,
    Your transformation has been a truly sublime.

    In life, you will face many tests,
    But your sobriety is one that you have mastered the best.
    Your journey has been long and sometimes hard,
    But now you can celebrate with your ten-year card.

    We are proud of all that you have achieved,
    For your sobriety, you deserve to be relieved.
    So keep on walking down that sober road,
    We know that you’ll never let go.
    All you gotta do, is get thru this day. AF 1/20/2011

    Well done on the 10 years No Sugar!
    I quit drinking on March 8, 2020. Taking it One Day At A Time and no more taking my quit for granted.

    Also doing it for me. I got to stay sober for me.

    Just consecrate on today and do what you can to remain sober for today and worry about staying sober tomorrow, tomorrow.

    Ah NS - thrilled for you lovely lady to be celebrating 10 years free from alcohol.
    MWO has changed so much since we came here a decade ago but thank you for staying on to help others. No doubt it is sometimes a thankless job as people come & then go without warning and we wonder what happened to them.
    (But then again, I think we all did it when we were starting out - this can be seen in our join date compared to our actual quit dates.)

    Personally I have so enjoyed your posts over the years on ALL topics - so insightful. I've learned a lot.
    I know I can always find you by going to the Nest where you will be (with others) sharing your wisdom & encouragement.

    Take a bow !!!

    Hey, Byrdie. I didn't know you were a poet, too! Thank you. xx

    I really appreciate all the good wishes - so nice to wake up to them this morning.

    10 years ago, I fast-forwarded to this day in my mind. I fantasized about how after 10 years, days and even months would cease to matter so much. Even at the start, I wanted to be done with the day to day obsession with not drinking that is needed at the beginning. It took awhile but it is so nice to be to the place that living a life not controlled by a drug is comfortable and normal. I rarely think about alcohol at all and even more rarely does it have any appeal (which fortunately is easy to dismiss).

    Thanks for being here, everyone. It makes such a difference to do this with others NS

    Congratulations, NS, on a solid decade of alcohol-free living! That is quite a milestone. And what you described truly is the reward: to be comfortably living a life that is NOT controlled by a drug! Thank you for sharing that, my friend.

    Congratulations! And thank you for all you’ve done over the years, but most especially for being so supportive of me, personally, and an inspiration. When I first got sober, or rather, the first time I got sober and in the early days, I lived on MnMs, the peanut variety, because that was my healthy option. lol
    Reading your posts about the effect sugar had on the body made me shudder, but also made me do the research into health and nutrition needed, especially in early sobriety. You were way ahead of your time.

    all the best to you. Xo

    Re: No sugar racks up 10 years!!!!!

    Thanks, all. I really appreciate your taking your time to write a note. I'm very happy with where I am and know that this site and its members were instrumental in making that possible. My hope is that anyone who wants the peace that is on the other side read what we all write on MWO and realize it really is possible. The thing I was so afraid of - life without my crutch - was such an unfounded fear. Life is so much better this way!!
