Use this thread to post your sobriety date and any other related stuff like where you got sober, and what group if you like.  smile
I got this idea from the NA board, which has 3 pages of replies, most of which are less than a year.

Mine is July 25th, 1989.  I got sober at the Unity Club in Falls Church, Va.

March 1, 2009. At home, waking up from a BAD night, knowing that I've probally lost my family to alcohol. It's still new for me. I only regret, I didn't get sober sooner.

Things have improved so much in the last month and a half. Better things to come!

18th October 2006, Gawber 7:30 p.m. was my first meeting - that's near Barnsley, in England.
I like to get to Tuesday Nights at Athersley, wednesdays at gawber, Fridays at penistone (Home group) and Saturdays at Barnsley central. I travel a fair bit and have always managed to find a meeting, often within walking distance of the hotel. Had a great meeting last week in Greenock

I recognize a couple of dates.  First is 1/16/86 is when I admitted to being an alcoholic.  This admittance helped keep me sober till July of 1992.  Then I decided I needed to do more research.

After two years of intensive study I came to accept that I was an alcoholic.  By the grace of God I've been sober since 9/4/94.  God willing, my research days are over...

10/1/08 I found my way into AA.  Thank God.  I admitted and accepted I was an alcoholic fully and said so in that first meeting.  207 days later, a day at a time, still a newcomer, still sober, and it has been a hell of a journey so far, but a great one.  Glad to be sober today.  Bless all of you guys (and gals).

Mark,

Feb 8, 1979 stopped drinking entered Al-Anon Clovis Ca. Alcohol Recovery Center
left...continued not to drink and returned crazier then before to the Monday Night
College Church of Christ Al-Anon Family Groups. Attended college so that the
Education System of California could prove the recovery people wrong and had it
prove the opposite.  Counseled in the the ARC for alcohol and substance abuse
and addiction for adolescents, adults, families and much more and then met the
instrument of my HP (a younger drunk) that finally led me to my own assessment
and my first for real AA meeting, the Friday Night AA/Al-Anon Family Meeting in
Fresno CA.  I was blessed with no return to drinking for 9 years before attending
AA.  My assessment included 3 toxic shock events covered up by a lot of denial.
My home group is the Sunday meeting of AA at the Bay just 4 miles outside of Hilo
on the Big Island.  I am the only remaining founder of that meeting from 1994.
I hang around relapsers to reduce the propability of that happening to me also.

Of course my most frequent emotion is gratitude.

Sober since my first meeting in Chula Vista, CA on 5/21/75. I felt at home in AA meetings in a way that I had never felt at home anywhere else . . . ever. I didn't want to lose that feeling so I did everything they suggested I do in order not to ever want to leave. Love and Blessings - Chuck

January 03, 2008 --> Realizing where I was, spiritually, and knowing that there had to be a better way of life.  I was looking for a way out and I believe that I've found it in AA!

My sobriety date is March 14, 1985. I got sober in Cincinnati at Oak Street clubhouse, Young People's meetings and some others. I went to the World Conference for AA's 50th Anniversary when I was just 3 months sober and 17 years old. CRAZY and I would recommend it to everyone. I just recently decided to make a sunday night women's meeting that I recently found my homegroup.

Make that 4/11/09, the first day I attended an AA meeting.  I'm not counting the dry time from 2/16/09 to 4/11/09, that's time I was sober but doesn't feel like that day was my birthday.

Date of Sobriety: July 11th 2009

Place: Salem Oregon Buckley Detox Center

Reason: Alcohol was ruining my life, I lived to basically drink. Even though its only been a bit over 100 hours since my last drink I truly feel like a new man and that the Higher Power has given me a second chance at life! I will Practice every day to be sober! 24 HOURS!

I'm too wishy-washy.  I'm just gonna stick with 2/16 because too many people get confused and I should just keep it simple.  I'll be 5 months sober tomorrow, that statement is as true as I believe it can be (to myself and to the world), end of story.

Your notes in this forum sound like the kind of group I've been looking for.  I carried on a fight to remain drunk and drugged for a long time.  My Higher Power waited and waited and waited until I was - truly - at the edge.  I had a simple choice - live or die NOW - and at the moment I realized this choice was perhaps the last decision I would ever make, I chose (I think) to give up.  Sobriety was a miracle that happened in my head and my heart and my soul - all at once, and with no doubt whatever that I was "safely home."  It's now been 28 years since that moment, and my wife (yep - also in recovery!) and I have made an unbelievable adventure out of our broken lives.  I am grateful to you all, and all the others who wander into a recovery program of ANY kind.  You have shown me what I was, what happened, and what I am now.  I'll be back!

Jim L - 6/27/81

Is it enough to say I've been sober all day today?  If yes, I have!  If no, try 6/27/1981.

Today is September 28th 2009 and it will be my official DOS. I have had several periods of not drinking in the past, but somehow I keep going down the wrong road. I blacked out on Saturday night and decided after an entire day trying to recover Sunday that I had not taken this fight seriously. I look forward to putting many many sober days behind me and making some new friends along the way!

By the Grace of God and AA I have not found it necessary to have a drink since July 12, 1976

I went to AA while staioned with the US Navy in Honolulu, Hawaii and having escaped from Active Alcoholisim I never went back for my hat.

My sponsor said slips were optional and I did not have to have one.  He was right!!

My first birthday in AA July 7th 1986
Now my birthday is 2000. I picked July 7th cuz I can't remember exact date in 2000.
It is important to me to post original date because I have never stopped recovery and the memories of learning a new way to live and having a relationship with my sweet higher power ; I do honor the significance of abstenence- Mental Health isn't possible without it.

Hi I'm Michael my sobriety date is july 12 2005.  I got sober in Akron.  God knew where I needed to end up it was a long road from Illinois to Washington DC to Ohio finally in the hospital in Akron.  It was uh interesting.

I could have sworn I had posted mine here, but can't find it, so here it is

July 11th 1990

First Meeting was at Moorland Avenue Monday night step meeting Barnsley, South Yorkshire England. I did this meeting as my first ever meeting 7 years previously, and 'occasionally dropped in' to various meetings just to et them know how I was (which was usually pissed)

After much consideration, I am amending my sobriety date to 09/10/09. That was the day I left jail and went into treatment. Since rehab was my idea and I stayed voluntarily, I believe the time in there counts.



Thank you all for being here.


Thanks, Dean!

my name is erin, alcoholic. November 24, 2009. 11 days sober for me.

i've talked with a friend's father who i've known was in recovery all these years, went to a meeting with him. he gave me the big book to read. i went to another meeting, thursday, on my own.

reading your date of sobriety posts, once again reminds me that meetings are necessary and helpful and fulfilling. i'm hoping to find something online to supplement. i'd really like to have gone to a meeting tonight.

My name is Neil and I am an Alcoholic.  I had ad my last drink 3/03/1999 and got sober in meetings in Escanaba, Gladstone, and Marquette Michigan.  No sponsor then but lots of meetings and great folks that sincerely wanted to help.  Meetings, using the tools, a sponsor and sponsoring, the fellowship, and living each day in Step 11 have worked for me so far.

My sign in is my name. D.O.S. December 10, 1989. Also my real birthday, therapist thought it a great idea although I gave up two and a half months to get it. Didn't go out, just couldn't recall the actual date I came off the marijuana maintenance program. My home group is where ever I show up. Living in Bristol, Ct.. You can almost always find me at the  Bristol Recovery Club.
