Thank you all so much....all of your words seriously mean so much to me. Reid, I'm sorry to hear you are going through a rough time....I'll be thinking of you and hoping that it passes soon....
I'm so happy to be where I am....and I also realize that I have a long way to go. So many more goals to be reached....not only in my sobriety "timeline", but just in life in general. A long time ago in my thread I said that no one is guaranteed a happy, content life just because they stop pills. They have to work for it. I believe that now more than ever. If I don't fill my life with things that make me happy, fill those holes, etc., then I can easily slip back to my old ways. That was my problem to start with I think....I was just waiting for this "happy" life to instantly appear, and when it didn't, I found something that would simulate it for me. So I'm just going to keep working at it, and hopefully good things will come my way because of it...
A question....I'm not on here all that much so I think I might have missed something....is Robert taking a break? I haven't seen his name on any threads lately......

Hi all, just wanted to check in! On September 14th I hit my 7 month mark. If you would have told me a year or two ago that I could go 7 months, I would have said you were crazy. It feels so nice to be entering a new season (my favorite, Fall!) clean and sober and just enjoying life. And 7 months later I'm FINALLY starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel as far as the finances, so that's been good.
I hope all my old friends are doing well....and that anyone who is starting out and might be reading this can realize that there IS a better life without pills in it....

Thank you for checking in Moon! So glad to hear you are doing well. My father always has to remind me of the day. I just don't even count them anymore to be honest. I don't lose sight of the problem I had though and keep fighting daily. Hope everyone else can do the same. Peace
