Congrats on 40 years clean and sober. It’s inspiring to me. Miracles do happen!

24 years here. Sometime this month in 1997 was my last alcoholic drink. I started a thread about it some years back. Anyway, may I make my remaining years sober.
Congratulations!

Hey There Crusty,
So, you’re up in MA, and I’m down in CT. Seeing you’re on this forum, I assume you own an Ironhead. I’m shooting to ride mine to the September 2022 GBB in NJ (if there is one). Maybe you can join me on yours…
BTW, 35 years of continuous (in-a-row, as my home group calls it) sobriety as of December 13th, 2021. It was a cold day in hell!

Congratulations!!!
I too have been straight for a very long time now.
I don't miss it.
But I do remember the good times (and the bad).
It's just a page in your biography book.
I look back sometimes and think... "how the Hell did I get away with that".... and that... and that.
We grow, we screw up, we grow again until we get planted.
