Today is a really great day for me. I have remained sober for a year, longer than any other time in my existence since I was about 16+/-. I began drinking when I was very young, just not an everyday thing.
Shortly after becoming sober Buddhism found me.
I seemed to really enjoy the feeling of letting go and accepting things. My meditation helped me in numerous ways when things got dicey.
Reading the Suttras and teachings, as well as all the help from my great friends here, in understanding the Dharma, is in my simply humble opinion, the key to me remaining on my path.
Thank you too all my friends who have helped me in my understanding and progress on this path, without your help, who knows I may have never remained sober for this long.
