Coming up on 20 months now.

Delighted with myself but keeping up my twice-weekly AA meetings (on Zoom) and my programme. I also meet my addiction counsellor for a 1 to 1 once a month.

For me, it's important to balance the great progress I have made with the realisation that I cannot get too complacent.

116 days.

I'm tracking myself with the I am sober app that I find useful to keep an eye on my progress. All going well so far, the longest I've been off drink since I started it in the first place.

Good luck to everyone here

Brilliant stuff. Over two years. Impressive.

Best advice I can give is to keep busy and take one day at a time.

I did a lot of walking listening to music in the early days, I put away the money I was saving and treated myself to something small each week and put the rest into the Credit Union. When you see that adding up, it's harder to spend it on booze.

Make a list of the advantages/disadvantages of drinking. Remind yourself that alcohol contains ethanol. Keep your distance (further than 2m!) from your friends who are drinking, until you know you can spend time with them without an alcoholic drink in your hand.

Again, one day at a time. You CAN do it!
