Day 60 whoop whoop

Today, I am 60 days clean. It seems so surreal at times. Life is great. I'm so sorry that I don't come on here much. It seems most of you have your go to friends, and I don't want to intrude. I still get a little emotional from time to time. I'm so excited about the Holliday's:) I'm finding myself getting truly happy about things, and I'm learning how to deal with the not do good days!! Just like all the sober people do everyday.. The way I used to be. Counseling has made a world of difference, and I suggest it to everyone. It truly helps! My counselor is AWESOME! We laugh a lot, and sometimes I cry the whole time! She has taught me not to beat myself up for my poor choices, and to embrace my sobriety. Life is good! I'm Blessed and I am so thankful to have a God that loves me even when at times I was sooo undeserving! My kids and I have been having so many laughs just like old times. Life ain't always beautiful... Buts its a beautiful ride!!!!

Good to hear from you Butterfly!!!  Glad you flew by and posted today!!

You sound REALLY good and major kudos on 60 DAYS!!!!!!!

It may seem like everybody has their "go to friends"....but that isn't the case.
The ones that post back and forth and share are the ones who become bonded in friendship to one another.  By sharing our trials and our joys, we grow to love each other in a very special way.
Would love to have you fly by more often:):)

Please never think you are intruding on anything, especially with awesome news like 60 days! That is awesome. I also appreciate you mentioned how much counseling is helping, so many try to fight the mental stuff on their own after acute detox. I find it is a real joy and saving my life still. The more the merrier, I am so glad you posted this. Nice progress report, keep working it.

I'm right there with you Butterfly!!! 62 days clean today....Great job!!! We got this far one day at a time.  One thing I learned this week is:
If we keep one foot in the past and one foot in the future, we "pee" all over today.  Staying in today protects our serenity and peace of mind.... thanks for sharing yourself....we are each others encouragement for sure!!!
