That is really wonderful to hear. Mazel Tov! You should go from strength to strength! It's cool to read some of you very early posts, when you were only a few days in and Guard had to manually update the 90 day chart for you.
Much Hatzlacha!

Thank you, Serenity.

I agree that, the early posts on the forum (not only mine) are of significant historical interest.

May we all be Matzliach, one day at a time.

Have a good Shabbos!

Hi Kedusha

You are clearly a motivating factor here on the forum.

I am interested to know if you found hatzlocho in other areas of your life as your days of sobriety accumulated.

Hi Kedusha,

Never realized that you exist till now. Relative to you I am a new comer here. If i may ask you post in short your Journey, and if you still struggle today? What got you to sobriety and what is keeping you sober?

I am sure that you have many tips to offer. It is hard to go through your 30 page thread.

thank you
I currently attend live SA meetings. Feel free to reach out to me.

Hi Lomed,

Take your time to go through this thread and other threads - no rush!

The bottom line is that I decided that, be"H, I would do whatever it takes to stay clean, one day at a time. Whether it's reading through the GYE Handbook, implementing the three-second-rule, participating in one of the phone conferences, posting on the forum, having an occasional live meeting with other GYE members, or using only properly filtered internet, I've done whatever it takes to stay clean, one day at a time, and I'm prepared, be"H, to continue to do whatever it takes.

Hope this helps. Hatzlacha to you!

Got it - old school. No illustrious chidushuim.

Follow the old tried and true but me steadfast in the commitment.

Sometimes having no Chiddushim is the biggest Chiddush.

I'm reminded of a quote that is attributed to the Ibn Ezra: "Ein Beis Midrash b'li Chiddush. Ein Chiddush? Yeish Chiddush!"
