    Default 5+ years sober

    I moved on from here several years ago but thought I'd stop in and say hi. Smart Recovery gave me a good start and I'm grateful. Life has been good. Anything bad that does happen
    ( as does in life ) has nothing to do with drinking....just old age usually. Haha. But I can certainly deal with that.
    To those struggling always keep trying and you'll make it.

    Congratulations dude! That's really freaking awesome! I went from 12 step groups to rehab to lots of stuff finding my own way, so I understand the struggle of popping around like a March Hare trying to figure out how to stop messing my own life up. Keep fighting the good fight!
