Yep, four years ago today I had one last glass of wine to memorialize the event, then started my path to sobriety. That was about 6 pm. By midnight, I stumbled upon this forum trying to find the will to resist giving in to the call of alcohol as I had done so many times before. I feel so fortunate that I found it and that the many members who were on this forum at the time found me and helped me gather the strength to continue first to abstinence from alcohol, then along the path of sobriety. It has been quite a journey, but one that I am so grateful they I finally began. Thank you to all of the friends that I have met here. You, collectively, have been my rock. Mark/Jeyu

congrats on 4years. What an awesome job you did to get to this stage. I know that you and Brett and myself have remained strong friends since we joined this site and I know that I have stayed strong many times because of you 2,for that I will always be grateful.
im so proud of you, it’s a hard job to admit that we had a drinking problem and even a harder job to stay true to ourselves and know that we don’t need to drink. You did real good Mate :-) a big kiss for you from down under.
Four years of sobriety ... that is such an amazing accomplishment, Mark. You undoubtedly can recall wondering if you'd make it four months, maybe even four days, as many of us did. But look at you now. I know you're feeling proud, as well you should.
Sincere, hearty congratulations. I feel privileged to call you a dear friend.
PJ, It’s good to hear from you! You are absolutely correct in that four days was very much in question initially. You were/are very much a part of my path and I sincerely thank you. To a four year, but lifelong friendship! Mark/Jeyu
