hello. after being a heavy drinker and smoker for many years [with all the troubles and problems these bring] I stopped drinking 8 months ago and smoking ,2months ago.perhaps now I may have some ideas and insights which might be helpful and encouraging to others.
I dont want to be pushy ...Im no expert or born againer but have lived through a nightmare; and now the nightmare is over
..and that is good.
best wishes.

Hi Tony
I'm new here today, I have been sober for 1 year, 8 months and 20 days!
It was the best thing I ever did and for a long time the suicidal thoughts went away.
Today is my birthday though and I've hit a real low point in my life.
Certainly if I hadn't been sober I don't think I'd still be here.....

Hi and welcome to the forum,

I'm so glad to hear that the nightmare is over for you.. it sounds like you've put in a tremendous amount of work to give up the addictions and I really applaud your courage and determinism (not sure if that's a word). I've personally never been addicted to substances (although my friend and I used to smoke daily at school.. i never got addicted but she did, not sure how that works!?) so can only imagine how hard it is.. anyway, i hope things continue to improve for you. I look forward to seeing you around the forum.

Jenny
