    Default 30 day mark.....bittersweet

    I have reached my 30 day mark until my last bet!!! I am really just beginning my recovery but am feeling positive. I am in major debt and rebuilding my trust with my wife but I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I am free!!! I was looking forward to my meeting to receive my 30 day keychain for me but also because we were to celebrate another members 3 year mark.....his celebration was cancelled. He relapsed. It was sad but I have realized my recovery has to be about me. I feel bad but if I get caught up with everyone else’s recovery I may blow my own. Stay strong everyone!!!

    Go you!

    And go the three year person too!
    What a wonderful achievement for you both.

    SMART allows me room to count any way I see fit.
    Continuos days; days in the week/month I altered my behaviour; any method I see helps me.

    I cannot erase the things I would rather I hadn't done, how can I erase days well lived by an act (s)?

    That theee year person still has all those days in my book

    I trust they cut themself a bit of a break.

    Very well done on your part
    What got me sober was trying to get sober. Every time I lapsed, picked up, drank, I was thoroughly beaten. I thought at those times "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from those thoughts just a little, I thought "have another go!" It was a lot of little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here.
