I’m coming up on 2 years (May 27).
I vividly remember those first few months, maniacally riding my mountain bike through the woods with you guys plugged into my ears. That was my meeting, as it were. That was my time to not feel alone and imperfect with my drinking problem. Your conversations included me by not excluding my way of finding sobriety. And you led me to other recovery resources by way of your guests.
My trail rides are a little less frenetic/dangerous now. I feel settled, peaceful, and pretty much able to handle or just be with nearly anything that comes my way. Chris, Jeff, and Matt: I just want to thank you from the depths of my soul for sharing the depths of your souls. That in and of itself is a great lesson to me. I'm alive and no longer drinking myself to death.
