I just joined up here and hope to make it back to do some sharing. I'm coming up on 10 years sober Oct. 29, and life just keeps on getting better. Been involved with recovery sites since 2004, and it's been a great tool in my sobriety, along with f2f meetings and working the steps.
I was "out" there for about 35 years, along with "jails, intitutions, and (very close) death". It took me to hit my "bottom" to finally sober up. Will try to get back and post more later. Glad to be part of this site.
