I am 2 today!

Today I am two years sober. I remember in meetings seeing other people say they were 2 years sober and thinking that was so much time, maybe you are reading this and thinking the same thing. The deal with that is after my 1st year, time flew. Last year I was in a depression on my sobriety day...it was horrible! I had worked so hard and a depression? Everything happens for a reason and it got me where I am today, so I ain't bitchin. I have learned that excitement is not a feeling I like. I have also learned to be very in tune to my ups and downs, to stay balanced. If your curious why that depression happened here's why I think it did...my good friend got a DUI, I was eating like shit and was way to excited about making it a year, along with life happening. So this year I am just going to take it easy. I have a very busy day today so I am going to get what I need to get done and maybe think about going to a meeting to pick up a chip.

  8. Emily!
    Congratulations! I sure hope you picked up that chip. Aside from your accomplishment, that chip helps the newcomers know that it can be done and it helps the old-timers to remember what it was like early in the program. Chips help everyone. Way to go! Julia
