    yeah celebrate my going to a meeting, and getting a sponsor if you don't already have one. Also celebrate by beginning some step-work if you haven't already done that.

    I'd just like to comment on the pleasantness of a good thread such as this, a successful run of soberness and the positive feedback given by responses.

    Stay strong bro.

    I got 6 months yesterday. my life has improved like 8000% already. I am really excited to see how much better it can get.
    My wife has taken to drinking N/A beers at social gatherings and stuff, what are your guys thoughts on N/A beers? I have had them a few times, it doesn't seem to threaten my sobriety but I know that a lot of people in recovery say" non-alcoholic beer is for non-alcoholics".

    I think if you talk to anyone who has been around A.A. for awhile, they would tell you that's a slippery slope. Stick to soft drinks, juice, anything that doesn't taste like alcohol.
    Congratulations on 6 months. Stick around, do the work, you'll be amazed how much better your life will be!!

    Yeah, I think non-alcoholic beers are rather stupid. They actually do have just a tiny bit of alcohol in them, I would consider it a slippery slope, however I heard some places here in California people drink them. I definitely don't want to drink anything that even reminds me of the taste of alcohol, personally.

    I have friends in the program that I see more often if I go to meetings. I was attending 3-5 meetings a week for my first 18 months, in order to make new friends. Now it seems like I hit 1-2 meetings a week, and I stay in ok touch with people in recovery. I'd like to attend around 3-4 meetings again, jumpstart my social again. Also, I have a committment at a meeting, that'd really made the biggest difference.

    Yeah, that'll be the next step for me, goddamned cigarettes. I've been smoking like 15 years and I'm starting to feel it.

    even smoking on a low level (1-2 pack a week) like I had been, after 4 years I can tell it's effected me at the young age of 19... After just three days of not smoking I feel way more energetic, I can actually smell stuff when I go outside (I thought people were crazy when they said they lost their sense of smell by smoking, I could smell just fine... but now I remember what it's like to smell everything around you :coold: )... Also my mind feels clearer.

    On one hand you should take it one step at a time, but

    My father quit smoking after about 40 years (3-4 packs a day). They showed him an x-ray of his lungs and he left the doctors office and never smoked again, it was 4 years ago. If he could do it, anyone can.
    He is always talking about how great food and wine taste now. It's pretty remarkable how the human body has that sort of plasticity, that he can regain taste and smell after all that smoking.

    Yeah but hopefully it's not too late for his lungs to heal.
