I am very happy to share that, b'Ezras Hashem, tomorrow, Shabbos Shuva 5777, I will be 2,700 days clean.

The significance of this number is as follows.  As we know, in Halacha, when it comes to changing a habit, there are (at least) two significant numbers: 30 and 90.  For example, after 30 days of saying "Mashiv HaRuach" in Shemoneh Esrei, you can assume you said it, and would no longer have to repeat Shemoneh Esrei in a doubtful situation.  

Furthermore, if you say the phrase "Mashiv HaRuach u'Morid HaGeshem" 90 times (along with the preceding 5 words), then we also poskin that you would not have to repeat Shemoneh Esrei in a doubtful situation.

2,700 days is 30 x 90.

My Tefila is that, wherever each of us is holding in this journey, that we all continue to stay clean, one day at a time, and serve the RBS"O with Simchas HaChaim every single day!

By the way, I had a dream last night - make that a nightmare - that I had a fall.  I've never in my life been so happy to wake up!

With tremendous gratitude to the RBS'O, to Guard, and to the GYE community, I am happy to report that I reached a special milestone today, be'H - 10 Years Clean!

Now, this is very important - I need to keep reminding myself:
Take it one decade  DAY at a time!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Lag Ba'Omer.  Keep on trucking, and hoping to hear good news from all of you!

Kedusha,

I am new to your thread but from browsing a few minutes you posted a couple of years ago how you were 10 years clean! While that is truly unbelievablely amazing, what astounds me even more is your current streak of 78 days...

May i ask what happened, and how were you able to summon the courage to restart over 11 years later thats so amazing!!!

Please enlighten us

Hey Kedusha!

You were one of the regulars here when I first joined.
BH I remain sober some 11 years later.

Very brave of you to admit a fall so far in.
I thought you were invulnerable in your rocket ship.

Very sobering too.
Good to remember that we remain vulnerable.
Even this far out, I am tempted daily to slip and fall.

Always need to take this one day at a time, one nisayon at a time.

Looks like you're back on track.

Much hatzlocha,
Alex
