    5 YEARS SOBER TODAY!! Praise the LORD!!

    well as the title says guys today 5 years ago i had my last beer. it was a 22oz bud ice and it was a very rough day! its amazing all the things the Lord has done in my life since and how much things have turned around for the positive. sometimes i find it hard to remember back to where i was so desperate and out of control but i need to keep it fresh in my mind to put into proper perspective how blessed i really am. i have a wonderful (most of the time ) wife and daughter, a great job and home... i have restored the damaged traumatic relationship i had with my parents and they have lived to see me "straightened out" which is a blessing because my mom is now 86yrs old.. my credit is actually good and i dont have to be afraid anymore when a cop pulls behind me LOL...

    i thank the Lord for His love and mercy.. it is only because of HIM that i am sober today..

    if u wouldve told me 5 yrs ago that today id have 5 yrs sober i would not have believed u. i could not imagine my life without drugs and alcohol... now i cant imagine my life with them.

    Agree. Anything can be overcome. If its easy to get, its probably not worth having! since you don't want praise, I won't give you any but you certainly have my respect.

    Congrats 405, been there just not the alcohol dependency. Never could imagine life without that stuff, and like you said cant imagine in your life now. I've seen a lot ppl who had a lot time clean slip up by the old f... It syndrome. Thinking I'm good now I can have one, and that one led them right back to where they were. Can't be done one leads to two. Keep you relationship with your savior first and you never have to worry. Again congrats and good job. God bless

    The answer to your every question

    Rules

    A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted
    to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially
    one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.


    If you get scammed by an UGL listed on this board or by another member here, it's all part of the game and learning experience for you,
    we do not approve nor support any sources that may be listed on this site.
    I will not do source checks for you, the peer review from other members should be enough to help you make a decision on your quest. Buyer beware.

    Wow 405! I'm SO proud for you, man!
    This almost choked me up, to know that it IS possible.
    I lost the love of my life in October because of her Alcoholism. She will have no contact ever since, and many people say I'm WAY better off... But I pray every day for God to help her heal, and to bring her back into my life.
    Inside every alcoholic deadbeat, is a person who is desperately hurting, and who wants to be better. I pray mine will have the wake up call you did.

    I'm always encouraged to hear people's stories of overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. You can truly thank God for pulling you out of that hell. Peace be with you 405!
