Hey Boston, congrats on 11 months and counting. I know I have a way of counting how long it has been. Which was 8 months on Aug 15th. Then I was seeing my counselor last week and mentioned I would have 8 months on Sun. He was like "and then what"? "What happens at 8 months?" At first I thought he was trying to burst my bubble. That he didn't think it was any big deal. So what, 8 months....that was my impression. So I thought about it and replied that it was kind of a milestone for me. I had never gotten this far and worked the program as I'm supposed to before. That I did feel GOOD about it ! I was proud of myself ! But in all reality - 8 months - it's just another day of sobriety. I'm not cured at 8 months. I'm not cured at 8 years. And that was the point he was trying to make. I told him I knew that. I had already been that route and I knew first hand I would never be cured. So I guess I had another lesson in humility. To be humble and not get too full of myself. There will be plenty more 24 hour days to add to my 8 months and this lifetime of recovery.

I know my counselor knows what he is doing. Relaspe prevention. And I will trust him to teach me, along with my meetings and church. Life is good now I have no doubt about that. And the word I think sticks the most with me lately is "willingess" - I have be willing. Willing to pray and get to meetings and listen.....really listen to God and other AA's who are succeeding with their sobriety. It's a beautiful thing.

I think it's awesome you have almost a year. And I'll certainly pat you on the back and others when they hit another mark. That helps me too !

Thanks everyone - have a great day.
