    No, I do think it matters. Someone who has 2 days sober has a lot less experiance living through lifes truly horrendous shit, and not picking up.

    anomaly i don't think he meant it that way... I believe he meant it more that it doesn't matter how long you've had it, it matters that you've got it at all. That you're willing to have it...

    however, I do take pride in mt clean date, but to be completely honest, to anyone who doesn't understand and is on the outside looking in, it means fuck all.

    I am only really sober today and somehow one today at a time God has done for me what I could not do for myself.
     
  9. first of all im new to these forums so i thought i would give a quick "hi!" :)

    mine is october 15th, 2003. maybe you are laughing, but it has been a hard time since then, and I am happy to say that I have little to no withdrawl now. sometimes i wonder if the urge will ever go away, but I am much happier without it.

    I am speaking of hydrocodone (vicodin) addiction, if anyone wants to talk about painkiller addiction please feel free =]

    Noone would laugh at you! What time did you wake up this morning? Probably the same time i did. There - we both have as much clean time today, get it? Looking at the length of your sobriety in front of you is defeating. Looking at it for today is motivating. The urge will never go "away", its a sleeping tiger that waits for you to pretend it's not there anymore. Withdrawal later on will manifest itself entirely mentally and psychologically. You'll be fine, but just stay clean for today! And repeat that tommorow... etc

    :confused:

    Withdrawl started while I was on vacation up in the Adirondack Mountains . I never intended to quit drinking . The first few months were filled with confusion , anxiety and panic attacks . I never thought of writing down the exact date , and I don't think it really matters . What matters is that I'm sober . It was sometime after August 20th , 2002 .

    gotcha. well, good job regardless!

    p.s. you should pick a day and just assign it as your birthday, it reduces confusion (just a suggestion)

    Had my first meeting tonight. I also plan on attending quite frequently. I know I'll especially need to on Friday and Saturdays.
