Well that says it all. I’m well, I’m 5 years older, better, wiser, and because I’m 5 years sober it makes me really fucking cool! ( Oh, I still swear, just not around the little ones).
I’m having the time of my life. How bout you?
We had a blast at the beach. This is what life is all about. There’s no happiness in a bottle. It’s found in soft sweet cheeks, little kisses and being present in every moment. Five years ago I knew I couldn’t go on with the regrets, the hazy, sorrowful mornings, the wasted life. Not wasted anymore.
Hallmark or whoever decides these things says a fifth anniversary present should be wood. What the f… Hmmm, I’ve been wanting a new dining room table.
Stay in the moment my friends, stay here, as Belle says.
See ya around.
Wonderful! Congratulations on your 5 years! I am happy for you :-). Beach and 5 little ones, so sweet. 🙂
Congrats on 5 years. I have 5 days as of today. Reading your story has sure helped a lot! Please keep posting.

You were one of my inspirations when I got sober 4 years ago at 64

Congrats on 5 years! Good to see you!
A wonderful milestone. Congrats ♥ Love those little gems on the beach too.
Well done smasher! Great pictures and so lovely to hear from you. Right behind you – actually just did the arithmetic and counting today I have exactly 100 days to go to 5 years myself. Looking for something expensive in wood now 😉 xxx
Oh my dear Primrose, cheers to you too! Hope all is well! Perhaps something in mahogany
had to come over and say hi.
and, btw, yes we are kindred spirits,,,I think this birthday i’m talking about might coincide with yours (not sober, natal!)
those grandchildren are gorgeous!!
So happy you can be present for them and for yourself.
Happy 5 years!!!
September 25, 1951 holy Fuck! I know your not the same age but maybe the same month and day?
I’m August 9….a couple years younger, which means a big birthday in a couple days.
Close though, close. And getting sober older is an interesting experience…good for both of us!!
It’s been too long since I’ve read all my favorite blogs! So happy for you! Congrats on 5 big ones. You are my inspiration!
Thanks for the reminder of fun sober should be.
