Lovely to mark the last day of another sober year with all my buddies on BE. What a privilege to be a part of this community, I never forget just what a state I was in when I first arrived here back in 2008 to start the journey towards lasting sobriety ... gosh I was so scared. Thankfully you all taught me that my fears were in my head, life sober is not something to be frightened of at all \:)/ as TC said one day sober is a day of life gained ... so very true.

#3 checking in.

Thanks for organising us all for another year TC!

I haven't had a full year AF but I've had some good long chunks including a 5.5 month spell earlier in the year.

Well done everybody! \:)/

Evening All...#43 checking in ending the year as it began... Sober! However the period in between could have been better TBF I have managed to moderate quite well but AF is surely the goal...would like to request a no# for 2019 challenge if I may.

Seasons greetings to old & new
