Thanks for the update Jen!
Glad that it went well for you.
I'm sure that it helped those that were listening to you.
They often want to know "Geezzz, how is this going to work after I get out?"
To see and hear someone, who is "on the outside" and "staying sober" it means a lot to them!
Especially... when it's coming from someone fresh in sobriety, instead of one of us that have been around for a long time.
When I was newly sober in AA -- I didn't believe anything anyone said -- IF they told me they had been sober for longer than a year. LOL. My belief was that if an alcoholic could stay sober longer than a year -- either they weren't really an alcoholic like me -- OR, they were just full of BS. LOL
