Tue Jan 15, 2013, 10:12 PM

I had a very great and very special anniversary yesterday, and...

...I completely forgot about it! I feel like a bit of a doofus.

Yesterday, January 14, was my 23rd anniversayr of sobriety. I'm not looking for kudos at all. I'm jist happy that it's been this long (and not even close to always being easy).

Thank you for allowing me to share.

PEACE!

2. Thank you, riderinthe storm!

I swear that the first 3 years that I was sober were harder than the last 10 that I was drunk.

For about the last year or so of being drunk, I was much more concerned with quantity than quality, so instead of my favorite beers, which were $7 to $9 a six pack, I was buying this rotgut called Strgmeier Lite for about $6 a case. There are 2 reasons that I don't call it panther piss. Not only do I have too much respect for panthers, I have too much respect for PISS!

PEACE!
