Congratulations! That’s really awesome. Although, once you start to get a little time under your belt you start to realize that bad shit still happens in sobriety… like when you watch the Cardinals smash the Braves lol.

Yup, sometimes your the windshield and sometimes your the bug. Or sometimes your the Cardinals and sometimes your the Braves.

Well, fellas, guess what?! Not only was November 2nd the third anniversary of the Cleveland Miracle, but it was also the day I celebrated 28 years of continuous sobriety! Can you believe that shit? Not one day off, no cheat days, no out of town sneaks, everyday all day for 28 years. This year was pretty special: being back home with my old Home Group members, starting to the Sober Stogies Group (we meet twice a week now! Thursday evenings just started), having the freedom to get to more meetings now that the boy has started kindergarten. Practicing that gratitude-is-action-word mentality gets me out of my default mode sometimes. If I'm grateful I gotta show it! Thanks for being a part of my sobriety!

That's awesome. Thank you for carrying the message and being a good example of "How it Works" and The Big Book. Coming from where you were 28 years ago to where you are today is truly a miracle and living proof that "It works if you work it" and being willing to go to any length.

We will do well in remembering that we are sober only by the grace of God and any success we may be having is far more his success than ours. (12x12 page 92 paraphrased from memory)

Ain't that the truth, my friend.
