Thank you ever so much for writing your story! My date is March 12, 2011, yes, I am a new sober guy. Just past 10 months. I thank God every day for allowing me to be sober! As they say, you can't do it alone! Tried that too many times myself. My hat's off to you! Congratulations on 14 years! That's so cool!

Congratulations. My last drink was April11, 1994

11 January 2004 was not the date on which I had my last drink -- I don't actually remember that one.

My wife had caught me kitchen drinking some months earlier and I had once again sworn to stop drinking, though I would not/could not admit I was alcoholic.

A nightmare I had on the night of 10 January forced me into the admission and on the morning of 11 January, I rang the local self-help group to ask for their help.

So the start of my alcohol-free life is 11 January 2004, because that was the day I looked into my soul and admitted I was an alcoholic and could not beat this on my own.


I had my 9th anniversary on 11 January.

Feels good to be winning this battle, doesn't it?
