    I can now truly belong to long term club!!! Today is ONE YEAR being alcohol free.
    And what a difference a year makes!!! Gone is the waking up in the morning with bruises and thinking "god, what did I do last night? Gone are drunken dials, gone is hiding booze and how much I drank. Gone is the embrassement of my family watching me lose control.
    Gone is not wanting to do somewhere, becuase there is no liquor served. Gone is watching the clock to see if it "happy hour" somewhere in the world. Gone is 20 pounds of extra weight from drinking. Gone is people talking behind my back about how much I drank.
    I believe in my whole heart, that if you want something bad enough and it important enough, anything is achievable. Even for a drunk like me, no longer being a drunk. Everyday is a breath of fresh air, knowing you made it without alcohol to depend on. I wake up with no regrets and love facing the day. As I mentioned before.... it feels like I am in a marathon race, now at the finish line. I would hate to trip or fall and have to start at mile one again.
    Thanks for all your love and support since I have been on this site. (I don't post much, but read most the posts).

    I must be psychic because I was just thinking of you last night! No joke.

    I am so stinking proud of you Abby. I can feel through your words how wonderful you feel. A real inspiration. Thanks for posting.

    Congratulations!! It's such a liberating feeling isn't it? (I made 1 year on 1 Dec)... I know that I kept thinking "only x until it's one year"... but now it's been and gone there is no longer that artificial deadline.... I am not 'waiting' for anything, life just IS.

    I know I will always have to be vigilant - how easy would it be to have a drink at a wedding, or out with your mates - but that life is not for me - I CHOOSE to not drink now.

    Well done, you are a champion!!
