It has been exactly ten years.

No booze. No drugs. Clean and sober for 3650 days and few more because of all those leap years. Probably just as many meetings, therapy sessions and long cries. It’s hard to say which is crazier: my last few weeks of abuse or accomplishing ten consecutive years.

It seemed utterly impossible in the beginning.

But I hadn’t a choice any longer. I’d blown all my chances. Lost a slew of friends along the way. There wasn’t anywhere else to turn.

And today, I celebrate ten years. Next week, with new friends, I party again!
