Wow! Congrats on 11.5! I got all kinds of crazy waiting for my full 12 months! I still get hinky sometimes. This year is different I guess coming into 8 isn't going to be harder than coming into 7, LOL. But that first year! That was a crazy milestone - I got to thinking, "What the heck are you thinking Girl!!??" Still, I managed to hang on by talking to AA gals on the phone and arranging to get my 1 year chip on the very day! August 1st... I got sober in 2009, 5 days before my birthday! I wasn't having a whole heck of a lot of fun, was I?

Anyway - you & I should be pretty close to having the same anniversary? What is your day?

I'll be back in the morning! :) :D

My last drink was either July 30th or 31/2016, not exactly sure which day. My first AA mtg was Aug 1/2016, so I'm not entirely sure what my anniversary is! Any knowledge here?

Congratulations Kim. It's sounds like you just need to pick one and stick with that. I had to reconstruct my anniversary date as well. I know I'm within a day, but after a while, you won't worry about it anymore.
