Default UPDATE!!! Lost lease due to alcohol

Well is has been over a year and a half since Jan 18 2020 and that awful night being asked to remove myself from my lease. I can say I am still 100% sober no even a sip. It was tough last year no being on a lease. I was blessed to be invited on a few hunts (all on the same ranch) with a group of friends I have know for 10 plus years. I was very blessed and shot a 140 plus inch deer low fence. Well after the season was over I received a phone call that they had 1 spot open and wanted me to join the lease. This weekend I will be headed to the new lease near Goldthwaite to start getting my area set up. Its been great still being able to go out with my wife along with friends to venues watching live music and not even wanting to drink. I am blessed with the best support system a guy could ask for. Thanks to everyone on TBH for all the kind words and to the people who continue to send me PM's every once in a while checking on me. If you struggle with and addiction and cannot do it alone GET HELP its worth it. GOD IS GOOD!!!!!

Roy

Congrats on getting & staying sober. The worse is behind you. Stay strong and resist temptation, believe me I know. I haven't had 1 drop of beer or liquor since Nov 1 1992. Never regretted it. Watch yourself on the new lease and stay the course. Good luck.
