    Talking 1096 Days Abstinent From My DOC

    I just woke up into today and I decided to count how long it has been since I felt the need or urge to take a drink of alcohol (my drug of choice)... its been 1096 days in a row now. Thank you guys for helping me get here... one day at a time.

    Good for you!

    Sensational!!
    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.

    Congrats on 3 years. I had two years once and relapsed on pot, which made me go back to buying beer. Learned from my mistake. I just went on a 3 month binge and just quit cold turkey 5 days ago. Can’t live like that anymore and be productive.
