    Default Three years!!! Yes!!!

    When I started with Smart recovery in February 2014 I went straight to the
    success stories.I had just returned home from a 6 week treatment program.
    I began to gather my arsenal of support.Reading these stories gave me hope.
    I was excited and kinda freaked out to be on this journey.
    Knowing I wasn't the only one was huge for me. I read the forums every day
    and still read the success stories. They make me happy!

    A lot has happened in 3 years.For one,I don't lie anymore.Really,I don't.
    I laugh,a lot.
    I enjoy the simple things.
    Im not ashamed to talk about my drinking.
    Im calm
    Im happy
    Im grateful and I don't take any of the hard work I've done for granted.
    I ask for what I need
    I have boundaries.(what an eye opener)What? I can say no? Really.
    Anyhow for anyone reading this please know with the 3 p's ,patience,practice and persistence and a lot of hard work this can be done. I'm proof of that and so are a lot of folks in these forums.
    All my best,Peg
    Life is good,I am good.
    My last drink was December 18 th,2013.
