Thank you Db! You know we could not have followed had you not set an example. I hope we continue to pass it on! (((hugs))) and CAKE!

Congrats on 37 years! Thank you for being here for us newcomers (when compared to 37 years, I am very much a newcomer).

I would love for you to share how you came to get sober on Christmas Day!

Well done, Db; I make the year you took your last drink to be 1977. I'd love to see a photo of you back then (forum rules don't allow it); but I imagine long hair, handlebar moustache, massive shirt collars and flared trousers.

Am I close? :lol:
