Default Been sober 25 years today

June 26th 1992 started out as the worst day of my life. It ended up being the best day of my life. My life was spinning way out of control and I couldn't stop it and for the most part until that day I really didn't want to, but on June 26th 1992 I was on the verge of losing everything I valued in my life up to and possibly including my life if I didn't change. I finally admitted I had a problem and I needed help. I checked myself into Rehab and turned my life over to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and asked him to take control. 25 years later he is still guiding my life and I am still sober.

Congratulations. Almost all my family struggles with alcohol or has for a time but it has always been a take it or leave it thing with me. My best friend gave me some of the best advice that may have made the difference in my perspective. I was out with my buddy after an ugly fight with my girlfriend and said:"F**k this, let's do shots!" He looked at me and said: "What are you doing? Don't drink cause your upset that's stupid." I took that to heart more than he realizes and now it never been a factor or relief. Congratulations again, man.
