    My activity will be sporadic, but I will make sure I check in. Again I'm sorry.
    I should atleast mention that I just hit 6 years!

    I miss drinking and being social. Getting comfortable with that thought as a truth and having it be okay is probably the hardest part. I think a lot of people feel like the thoughts are dangerous or a lie or a trigger, but they aren’t. It’s just true. I drank because it was fun! It’s just all the issues around it were awful and life threatening. Thinking about drinking being fun has to also be paired with the hangovers and the financial, physical, emotional and foundational dangers. I am 90% sure that if I didn’t quit I would be dead right now. So here’s to six more years! Drink up!

    Congratulations on being 6 years and a few days sober, ZubaZ! FWIW, Day 1111 was when Donald Trump made his dark acceptance speech in Cleveland.

    To be clear, this is my 4th sober WS title. Jar startin' rumors. I might not be funny anymore since I quit drinking, but that's different.

    Yes, any decline is probably age related. Those aging curves are a *****
