Four Years......

Today I am sober 4 years. That's really strange to write. I'm not sure how I got here. I guess one day at a time. Not drinking has certainly made a difference in my recovery. It hasn't been easy, but the hard work has been worth it.

Tonight I was at a dinner for a teacher who is retiring. It was weird because four years ago, my last drink was at an end of the year party for school. Obviously, it was a very bad night because that night ended up being the last time I drank. It was just weird for this anniversary to fall on the same day as another "school related outing." It just brought back memories of that night four years ago.........not very good memories.

Congratulations! I am happy for you. I also feel a bit of envy and shame, as I cannot make such a claim. Keep up the good work!
