5 years sober

Post by Sue88 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:58 am

I just celebrated 5 years of continuous sobriety! Due to some health issues I am now an online only member and although I miss my regular homegroup members, I would like to reach out to the online AA community!

Welcome to e-AA. 5 years is great and we do go through some rough spots in sobriety and thats all part of the journey. We are glad to have you here. Please free to reach out and also post your ESH.

Welcome Sue, and congratulations on your 5 years. We have fine folks here in varying stages of recovery. It does tend to go up and down, sometimes very busy with lots of posts, then it might get quiet for a while, but it's always interesting to visit each day.
