    Well for me its been over 15 years clean in a family that booze was drank like water as a youth. I can  honestly say without the Lord's Grace and Help I don't think I would have made it. I feel very good that is one monster I was able to overcome, even though to this day my relatives still think you need to drink to have fun.

    Honestly - unsure who I even was.  It will be one year on Dec.1 that I took my last drink.  Scary stuff!  Didn't know how to act or go through the day being "normal", if there is such a thing.  I would watch other people to see how they spent their time.  Sad.

    i join the club of non drinkers to. It just awesome to know, that there are so many people who think the same as i do. I'm sober for more then a year now, and i really love it. For the present time i just keep saying how my life is good now. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but the last 10 months maybe are the best that i have ever had in my whole life.
