    Congratulations Mickey!

    That's fantastic, mickey.

    And kudos to all who've been able to abstain during one of the world's shakiest times.
    I echo hedo’s thoughts too.

    There is a soberversary to acknowledge today.  I won't out the person, but I hope that they know how much I love them and how proud I am of them.  Brings me to tears.  (No, really it does! :wipes tears from eyes:) Jump on out if you wanna and let me give you a big, fat hug!

    Thank you, my dear friend.  One of these days, IN PERSON, dammit.

    Yup, more than 30 pounds less of me, a damaged liver for life and all the physical and mental shit that goes with it.

    But, I have my life back.  My clarity.  Myself.

    With that came the sobering - haha -  knowledge that I'm an alcoholic (something my own mother has yet to acknowledge - the shame!!), and always will be.  I'm not necessarily proud of that, but it's part of the deal now.

    My level of missing a bigass scotch, neat, is outweighed by my resolve and fear of ever drinking again.  I'm not ready to die yet.

    So...two years and counting :)

    Jedi, :hug: x 1000 

    Rob, Keep hanging in there. We're here for you. Gotta reach out sometimes though. 

    Often! :smile: I found I had tucked one of the Wrigley 16 Kinder Eggs away. (Whoops.) K loved it! Made her skip the chocolate though. I believe she got a mouse.

    Immeasurable thank-you's for the friendships.  You're my anchors at times.

    And Rob, five months is fantastic!  Keep hanging in and hanging on until you find your own way.  You will.

    And congrats to the member, mickey.
    its the group anniversary. he stumbled onto the thread in Sept 09. been sober since.

    its humbling to think , I started this for largely selfish reasons.  Several folks found it and used it as a launch pad to a better way of living.

    one of the results are an english speaking meeting in SW  Poland that gave birth to another several hours away from that town. and most recently a second english meeting was started out of the first in the same town.

    and pearl jam was a conduit for it......

    coincidence? I think not. 

    I believe it was a god thing or cosmic alchemy for sure.....

    I continue to stand in awe of it.

    Well, music ignited my marriage, and many precious bonds here.  It’s wonderful so many have been helped by it, even as a launching pad toward the better. 

    Love of music is universal, as is love itself.
