Today (3/19) is my 4-year sobriety birthday
Man, did I pick a HELL of a day to stop drinking. It's also the 4-year anniversary of this sonofabitchin' war.

Thanks for writing back! I worked too late today to go to a meeting, so I thought I'd celebrate here! Did you see my IM to you?

3. And I meant to add in my OP,
and I'm grateful for every flippin' second of my sobriety, even if it also tracks with every flippin' second of the war.

6. congrats to you
That is fantastic. Today was bittersweet for me, it would have been my 15 year anniversary had I not relapsed 5 years ago. But I'm still sober and clean today, so all is good.

Congrats to you again.

11. Your post reminds me of that montage in the movie "Airplane"
with Lloyd Bridges' character saying, "I guess I picked the wrong week to stop ____________."

Even though I am in recovery, I still find those scenes hilarious.

12. I know. How hilarious
I didn't even realize that the day I stopped drinking was the day Bush chose to go to war with Iraq. Now, when I look back on it, I realize I'll NEVER forget which day we went to war. Thanks for the congratulations.
