    Congratulations Byrdie ...13 years booze free .

    13 years without a drink,
    Longer now than you ever could think
    Tried so hard in different ways,
    Couldn?t even do 13 days.

    Twas in the beginning at the start,
    Thoughts of booze in your heart.
    Surrounded with friend like walls in a fort
    All rallied round and gave their support

    You paid that all back more than enough,
    The folk you helped when the going was tough
    Newbies, Nesters and other threads too.
    All owe their ongoing to dear ole you

    So congratulations to you and really well done
    Proving you don?t need drink to enjoy life and fun
    Thank you from me in every way,
    Take care my friend y?all have a nice day
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 12

    Oh, Mick, this brought me to tears. I’m so grateful for the kind words. Indeed, 13 was a magic number for me, I kept falling at day 12 and when I finally jumped over that mental hurdle, the path smoothed out like a fresh jar of Skippy. My gratitude for this community is without measure. I could have never done this on my own, and I proved that for 20 years. MWO gave me the tools and support that is crucial for recovery. I have not had one drop of AL in 13 years and I hold this to be my greatest accomplishment in life, and it’s not even close.
    Special thanks to Lav for the much-needed reality check when I was BS’ing myself. She didn’t enable me, she extended a hand and pulled me out of a hole. I will never forget her unwavering support.
    Thank you to all in this community. I am forever grateful and humbled. Byrdie

    You really captured Byrdie’s journey in your excellent poem, Mick!

    I miss you, Byrdie, and your fun phrases like “smoothed out like a fresh jar of Skippy”!

    Congratulations to you on 13 years without a drop, and it is good to “see” you again!

    Huge congrats Byrdie!
    Quitting and staying quit isn't easy, its learning a whole new way of thinking. It's accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.
