Sorry I aint been around kids, internet does not work.
Still sober cept my left shoulder is fucked once again so I am on meds for it. This shit makes me very sad, and irate. People say this does not count against my sobriety, I dont know if I agree.
Well besides, in a few weeks it has been a year, crazy.
I will say in no way has it gotten easier, I live day to day with this junk, but its all good!

Ask any expert, there is a huge difference between taking medication for a problem and substance abuse. I would count it.

I know there are AA people who literally take one day at a time and stay sober for decades, so you are not alone and you have hope. I had a friend who finally went to AA after waking up with blue skin after a binge. She stayed sober for 5 years, but was still down on her life. She was healthy, had a job, a place to live and was sober. She could have been in a hospital bed somewhere wondering if she was going to live.

Think about all of the wonderful stuff you are doing for your health by not loading your body down with that crap. Think what a better position your life is in a year later, from where it could have been doing destructive things for a year. Shit catches up with you. You probably dodged at least a few bullets in the last year.

Well it's time to update this from the last time I posted. The shoulder problem ended up leading to a massive relapse that landed me into rehab at the Cleveland Clinic. I almost shut down my liver with the pills and went through some serious hell but since I have been sober now for going on 8 months.
Lots of therapy and digging into the depths of my soul, I now know I can fall at any moment. One day at a time.
