    Super Sober Shout Out 19th April 2020

    I'd like to see a big SUPER SHOUTY OUTY SUNDAY from members who have been here a while, those just starting out again or those just starting out for the very first time.........don't forget to shout LOUD AND PROUD..

    Don't be scared of making the leap...........Don't be shy and give it a try...........remember each and everyone one of us here started with a day one!!!!


    SHOUT IT LOUD AND SHOUT IT PROUD. STAY STRONG AND KEEP THINKING POSITIVE ONE AND ALL. LET'S GIVE OUR BEST TOGETHER



    By using the time and date app........ you'll know whether you've a roundy number or not a roundy number.......................Date Duration Calculator: Days Between Dates

    For me its..................It is 3939 days from the start date to the end date, end date included orr 10 years, 9 months, 12 days including the end date.................
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    2492 days from Day 1 to today !
    or
    6 years, 9 months, 27 days Day 1 to today

    Sometimes when I come on here on Sunday I try to 'play down' the pride I have in myself for getting this far in case it's seen as 'boasty'.
    And also if I think if newbies are reading they'll think "ah FFS I'll never have to be HERE if I had that AF time under my belt"
    We think the goal is to get sober - but it's actually to STAY sober because life throws all sorts of shite at us. Our thinking about things change.

    Last year I asked the question : if I was given a year to live would I drink - the answer was a DEFFO NO.

    With what is going on in the world now I was prompted to ask myself the same question last night : there was no definite answer

    Excuse the waffle of a Sunda' but I write as I think ..... not always good
    Benji ....
    Doing it my way

    .... the joy of being sober never gets old !!

    Congratulations, @techie.

    2642 days for me.

    You know, @satz123, it probably would be ok to be a “normal” drinker these days (but I’ve read several articles about how some of them are drinking alarmingly more) but every day it occurs to me how grateful I am not to be an addicted drinker. All the acquiring, hiding, consuming, disposing, and recovering was a nightmare under regular circumstances. I can only imagine the horror it would be now.

    5 years, 3 months, and 6 days of living life taking things as they come...

    Congrats on the 10 years Techie!
    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís 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.
