By the grace of a higher power, a whole lot of help from my friends, and a pinch of good luck, I have managed to stay clean and sober for another year. Today, I have celebrated my twenty fifth birthday.

Life is still a bit stressful, but we are all trying to coexist in the tiny space of my house. My friends are stilled camped out in my living room with all their dogs. For the most part I enjoy having company. The noise from all the dogs stresses me out, but I am trying to get through it. It seems so minor compared to their predicament. I didn't loose everything, I still have a house to go home to..... It's a bit stinky right now, but that doesn't matter cause it's still a work in progress.

Thank you all for your kindness, support and friendship.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 25 years, Holy Cow!!! You sure have built a very strong spiritual foundation over these years. It aids you when things occur that are a little out of control. You are fit internally and I embrace this as Hope for myself. It is a gift, what beauty.

May you enjoy your BD week. Such a miracle!

Congratulations!! What a wonderful accomplishment.

Truly, a stinky house..better than the alternatives. Plus, it won't be stinky forever (as you point out).

WTG!!

Happy Happy Birthday! Even if it is late. That is so awesome, and a milestone indeed. A long time between drinks, that is for sure.

Today, there is so much in my life that has happened that I say would have been unhandable had I been drinking.

Thank you for sharing this milestone with me.

I have a new post you might like. It is fun (for women)

Thanks for the info. Dealing with addiction is hard and if you are looking for executive rehab then help is out there.

Going to jail for substance abuse can be very difficult. Look into an alternative to incarceration and it’s the best option for many veterans.

Thanks for the info. Dealing with addiction can be hard and you should have an intervention for people you love when they need the extra help.

When our practice got started we needed crack rehab help. These were the guys we turned to and they did a great job.

When I needed to find a dual diagnosis facility these guys made the difference. They gave me the help I needed and it made a big difference for the rest of my life. 4 years sober!

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed treatment alcohol rehab help. When I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.
