Just wanted to say thanks for everyone’s support on this site over the past year. This past weekend my S/O and I went to New Orleans to celebrate his 40th Birthday and over 50 days sober. I’ve talked a lot on my other posts of my severe anxiety regarding the trip and going through the many emotions of early recovery. Well we did it. We went to New Orleans during Mardi Grad completely sober. We attended two concerts, walked the streets, ate some amazing food, went on some very cool tours, and found an AA meeting everyday. He even got a visitors chip which was very cool. He said he saw more of the city in just one day sober than he ever did in the past three other times visiting drunk. It was magical. and I just wanted to share this success story. He’s at 2 months sober tomorrow. In December I honestly thought I was going to lose him. I still worry about relapse as it is still early on. But what this experience has taught me is that recovery is possible for anyone at any stage, no matter how grim or hopeless it might seem. I know I’ll still have my breakdown moments but today I am feeling extremely grateful and positive. I’ll never forget these 60+ days. ️ ️ and sobriety.
Any other great recovery stories to share?
