Re: Dry for 10 years without program

My father has been sober for over 25 years. He went to meetings for a few years after he got sober (perhaps not even that long).

New to this forum

I do enjoy my meetings here, but I feel the need to stretch my legs and get other perspectives now and again. I quit drinking and started going to meetings about 3 and a half years ago.
