I am grateful for my really close friend who cleaned my kitchen for me. I am grateful for her company and sweet spirit. I am grateful for sobriety and that each day my head thinks just a little bit more clearly and God helps me see things in a new perspective.

Grateful to have earned back the right to have my full driver's license reinstated today. I lost my full driving privilege last August 7 2012. (The last day I've taken a drink!) To say I've learned a very costly lesson is putting it mildly. Driving is a privilege and not a right. Drinking and driving is NEVER right.

I'm Aylamay, alcoholic. I'm grateful to be sober, by the Grace of God and the Fellowship of a 12-step program. I'm grateful to have the love of family and friends. I have a house to live in. Everything I could possibly need except my own car, and maybe that's because God doesn't want me to have one right now for some reason. I have the love of family and friends. I have my own little Kitty-his name is Brego. I have a place of worship and a spiritual guide--in fact, she is in the program too!
ODAAT, I will keep on building on my six weeks. Thank you to you all for helping me stay sober.

Much love,
Ayla.

I'm Ayla, alcoholic and an addict. I'm sober by the Grace of God and the Fellowship of AA since 6-8-13. I am grateful today because of you, members, who have been out there, listening to me in my online meeting, keeping me sober by making comments. Thank you. I am grateful to God Almighty, who worked in His Wonderous Ways to help me go from being severely depressed back to being normal (ish) again. I am grateful for my growing network of friends and allies, who support me in my time of need and are friends and buddies the rest of the time. Thanks Guys and Gals.I am grateful for the Promises, and that they do come true. I am grateful for modern medicine and phamacology, that it can help alleviate depression so rappidly with minimal adverse events. So basically: Thank you GOD, Thank you AA, Thank you World and everyone in it. Much Love, Ayla.

I am so grateful for this program and for the concept of acceptance. I was waiting for test results that could have indicated a major health issue and they seemed to have gotten misplaced. I handled the stress really well, and did a lot of praying. When the results were located today, all is well. And while I didn't stress because I trusted my Higher Power, I also was not as relieved as I would have been had I allowed this to dominate my thoughts for three weeks.

Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.

No I guess we are not alone on this journey. So many others are just wanting a little spark from someone to encourage them on.Humans are humans and we all just want to be happy and good and for me drink hasnt definitely been the answer . I want to explore a world without alcohol and see who really am I.So thank you so much for your replies..A girl in Spain.

This is so unbelievable I just got a reply to keep me ever so sober for just today .Thank the Lord there is sb out there . I tell you I wanna just cry out of pure joy. My drinking days were so lonely always trying to confort my self with drink..only now do I see how baffling powerful and cunning alcohol is for me, because I am an alcoholic, first important step to accept yet sometimes the hardest ty so much for your reply.

Keep going to meetings and working the program. The fear of a relapse does lessen over time. But it's a healthy fear because sobriety is such a precious gift and life is too good sober. I got to meetings, surround myself with sober friends, and help newcomers when I can. We are here for you. If you need help, feel free to send me a private message. I'll get back as soon as I can. Hugs

hi I've been sober for just over 20 months and I'm so amazed how my whole outlook on life itself has been changing. I attend AA meetings otherwise this would have been totally impossible . Im afraid. I honestly want to continue sober hereafter too.

I am really grateful that I am sober. The thought of having to deal with the anxiety it gave me to drink wine makes me really grateful that it is one of my problems gone.
