    Today is 9 weeks without a drop of alcohol.

    I've always been a strong "Anything if you put your mind to it" kinda person. Alcohol, though, was one thing that I tried to give up countless times in passing, and four times seriously with varying degrees of success.

    This time, I got over my arrogance and starting attending a few AA meetings per week. Without AA I doubt I'd have been able to where I am today..

    I can't emphasize enough: Anyone who is thinking about or in-process of quitting something - Get into a support program. The support, accountibility, coping mechanisms...and just being able to talk about what you're going through to someone who can relate, is absolutely incredible.

    When I first started this thing, 9 weeks ago, I mentioned in my meeting that I was going to not have a car and was likely to miss the next meeting. They sat there and figured out who was close and could give me a ride. Many of the AA veterans will bend over backwards to keep you out of the bar if you call them when the craving hits...or if you need a ride to a meeting.

    I'm rambling but damn, I just had to share something positive.

    I agree completely, congratulations. "I got over my arrogance and started attending a few AA meetings a week..." great way to put it. Same thing happened for me and now I wake up and realize I have 2 years sober.
