Its That Time! October 2014 Roll Call!!

Hey everybody! Its time for our monthly roll call. Its good to see so many new people on the forum and always a pleasure to log on and see the old faithful members that have been here for years sharing their wisdom. Ive been clean for 4 years and 8 months and I still get a lot out of this forum. Their will always be somebody who says something in a certain way that just resonates with me. Recovery is a lifelong journey and I'm blesses to be on it.

So, without further ado, its that time! On this thread, we introduce ourselves and share our various lengths of clean time and for those in AA we will be politically correct and call it sobriety for you :) It does not matter how long you've been clean...1 day or 20 years, we would love to meet you and hear about it. Matter of fact, you dont even have to be clean to post here. Nope....lurkers are encouraged and welcomed! Let this be the icebreaker thread for you! So I hope we get a lot of people this month...it seems like we get less and less now. Don't want this thread to die off because its a great place to share hope and encourage others.

Much Love,
ABN

56 days for me... and i as well stay with this forum to remind me of where i have been... and to read how good things get as our clean time continues... since i missed the roll call last month... i find it the perfect time to congratulate all my fellow green bay packer fans on a sweet victory last week over the chicago bears... and i look forward to being clean for one year and 56 days... as it will be the roll call where i get to congratulate all the patient CUB fans for making the playoffs with the best record in all of baseball in 2015... peace be with you all...

I'm Eva been on here about 3 weeks. So grateful. I'd never had the courage to try this much less think I could succeed. But with all your help I now know I can. I go to AA & NA but the healthy me in my area is the AA. In 1996 I cleaned up from street drugs in NA but lived in a bigger town. I got blind sided by the, cunning, baffling, powerful, part of this disease when I herniated a disc, then 2 back surgeries. I have a group, you'll, church, sponsor; but you all are the ones that gave the courage to try. I'm 21 days clean off methadone, hydrocodone, Valium, zanaflex & resteril.
I'm very grateful.
Thank you all
Special thanks for the Green Bay shout out. Can't wait for Thursday night FB

528 days clean from Vicodin and 31/2 years sober from my DOC alcohol. I have 2 upcoming surgeries, one Oct. 15th and the other Nov. 17th. (Rotator cuff repair and a laproscopic surgery for girlie stuff.) So, I will be requiring some pain meds, hopefully for a very short time. I'm sure I'll be on here a lot post surgery needing lots of love and support.

Keep up the fight everyone!  :)

I just wanted to thank you for doing this every month.  I remember the first time I saw the post...I was detoxing...I think I was through the worst of it but I remember thinking to myself I can't wait until I can post my clean time and now I am.
  Keep it up, you are providing something to all of us that we all need.  A reminder....of where we were...where we are going and where we are at right now.

Thank you!!!

ABN, even though I was on pain pills for a couple of weeks as the script said, I'm going to claim my 1 year this month! I only took them after my surgery. I didn't take as many as the Dr said I could. By the way, the surgery didn't fix my back. The pain is coming back in places that it didn't hurt before. My legs are better though. So it wasn't a total loss.

Hi everyone! Thanks for keeping up with Roll Call, Evan!

I have 4 years and 6 months. My life is good and I feel good nearly all the time. I'm very fortunate but I had a lot of support along the way. I know this can't be done alone and I hope everyone is making a plan for recovery care if they don't have one already!

Its so hard, our smokes for a carton (6 pks of 30) cost $150 Aus $'s and i buy 2 cartons a week.
