    Congratulations. My wife hit 10 years this year and I’m 29 days away from a year 🙂 25 years is insane. Wow.

    As the grown (48yo) daughter of a now deceased alcoholic father I applaud & respect each and every one of you who has been willing to try, work, fail, try again and everything that comes in between and after all of this. I know it’s not easy! So proud of all of you!! 🖤

    Just quit last week let’s fucking go!

    Edit: I wanted to put this here for visibilities sake, It is critical you monitor yourselves for withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal will put you In the ground far faster than the alcohol would have. Both times I’ve tried to quit on my own resulted in me ending up in the ER. Don’t be afraid or ashamed at all to seek medical assistance, I vehemently recommend it. Doctors know how serious withdrawal gets; they have medicines they can prescribe that will negate the need for you to tempt yourself by weaning off. It’ll take away the guesswork and a huge amount of danger as well. So don’t concern yourself with whatever judgemental looks your mind perceives from them or whoever , cause there ain’t a doctor or nurse out there who wants to see you keep drinking yourself to death. I beg you to remember this. Thank you all and all the best to you!

    Congratulations! 7 years for me this past March. At one point I had 17 years sober, than fell off the wagon. But I got back on. Someday I hope to reach that 25 years myself.

    These type of posts are some of my favorite on all of Reddit. People kinda just taking turns sharing their successes and I’m sure there are lots of lurkers who find inspiration in everyone else’s success. If you’re one of these people and are waiting for a sign to begin your sobriety, here’s your sign! First step is the hardest but you’ll be damn proud of yourself after you get a bunch of steps behind you.

    I hit one year off pills about two weeks ago and feel super proud. I still struggle with alcohol and that’ll probably be a lifelong struggle but I take comfort in the fact that I’m beating one addiction which means I can beat another if I keep grinding and focusing.

    Good luck to everyone out there battling. It’s never easy but it’s a little bit easier when you see that so many others are fighting similar battles. We’re in it together

    You can make the change you want TODAY.

  14. thabbs says

    First year done, and going strong. Once you start, you don’t want to go back to zero.

  15. physis81 says

    Way to go! That’s amazing. No alcohol for me in 5 plus years.

  16. A_Random_Onionknight says

    Thanks and congrats, I myself got off hard drugs 3 months ago, quit drinking 6 weeks ago and don’t even smoke weed as of 2 weeks ago.

    It’s been hard so far, shakes, ttremors withdrawals, but these past few days have been good, I barely get anxiety or panic attacks anymore, I’ve been sleeping alot better, and my proudest thing right now, I’ve started reading again, I absolutely loved reading when I was younger.

    Edit: oh wow, a wholesome award, thank you so much kind Redditor.

  17. dave1684 says

    I’ve been sober for about 7 days. Can’t believe I’ve made it this far.
