Taking the opportunity

To thank each and every one of you for being here the last 365 days.

Its been quite a ride.

Looking forward to a smoother one in 2005--God Willing.

My sobriety moment of 20 years --one day at a time-- is tomorrow at 115pm

Im not bragging about that--Im just pretty damned grateful

I remember that moment of despair, as I poured a glass of whiskey down the kitchen sink, looked up in desperation, and cryed out, "If there is a God, please help me."

He did. And through each and every one of you, helps one stay sober, for yet, another day.

I thanku all of you with love, and in turn give that love back to you in any way I can.

Never give up--no matter how hard it gets. NEVER GIVE UP.

One day at a time, have a good 2005.!!

Easy Does it..Keep It Simple..Let Go and Let God..

Thank you for that.

For me, I'm just a 'newbie.' As of today, I celebrate 115 days of sobriety.

I'm looking forward to day 116. And hopefully many days after that.

It inspires me greatly to see others who have done what they have done.

Congrats Phil. I have no idea when 1.15 is... (but we won't go there again )

Just have yourself another wonderful minute, day, week, month and year!

Tis a truly wonderful thing that you are here with us, and your contribution to my world is substantial. Thankyou so much.

All the best from Aus.

Howdy Phil,

Happy New Year,  and tomorrow... Happy 20th AA Birthday!!!  Way to go!  I agree with you wholeheartedly about never giving up.  Life is too short and it takes time to get the hang of it!

For me, never giving up means there's always hope, trying a little harder and being the little engine that could!  

I'm grateful to have you in my life, dear friend.

Love and hugs and prayers,
