    Wait, you're six years sober but only 34? You ain't no real alcoholic.

    Just in case you didn't pick up on it, I was joking. I was a teen-ager when i sobered up in AA. Still sober in AA today. 25 years. So, all kidding aside, congratulations. Keep coming back.

    I figured you were. It could of been taken either way but you're BOTL so I went with the positive interpretation and anyways, I always implement my favorite AA quote "what other people think is none of my business" congratulations on getting and staying sober yourself!

    I thought maybe you were, too...hard to pick up sarcasm/jokes via text sometimes! Lol. I heard somebody say "you didn't drink enough to be an alkie." The response was, it's not how much I drank, it's what happened when I drank.

    @3/5King Happy Birthday. 6 years sober for an alcoholic is truly a miracle.
