3562 days sober

Yeah, it was a beautiful weekend here in the mountains! But, alas, I was stuck indoors most of it with my pneumatic stapler and 300ft of trim.

I did manage to spend an hour on the deck last night, sipping iced coffee, watching the sun set over the peaks...

Well, I have the exact same numbers as you! Only in a slightly different sequence: 3256.


Doing a bit better even though life is a turmoil at the moment. Found a new thing I can put my teeth in and perhaps earn some money with too. Glad to see my brain at 58 is still flexible enough to learn/dig into a completely new domain.


Probably helps said brain is no longer drenched in alcohol, and I'm exactly a month away from being 9 years sober. Feels good.

Yeah, I am 10 years behind you (next month) and I do NOT want to learn any new things...besides car stuff! I need some welding done and I am trying to work up the courage to take the grinder to my Roadmaster Wagon

My wife is throwing a "Decade Sober" party this summer. Got any travelling plans?

I'd love to learn how to weld and fabricate. I actually watched quite a few videos about it. A couple of guys bought a bog standard Mitsubishi Lancer wagon (115BHP), and turned it into a Lancer Evolution wagon (of which only 600 were ever made and sold in Japan) using parts from a salvaged (crashed) Evo, making about 520BHP on E95, with the full AWD system etc etc. Not an easy job . Thousands of spot welds to remove old panels and weld on the (much wider) new panels. It's truly an art.



But ... I think it's a bit late to start all that now.

Careful, or you have a 6'7" European at your door! Sadly, there's this little thing called Covid, I don't know if you heard about it. Also I'm skint (but that will change soon). However: sounds like a great idea, and I'm going to keep this in the back of my mind. I mean we can always go for an extra "joint party" when I'm near my "Decade", right?


I have 3 invitations standing for the US and Canada, and it's getting a bit rude from my end to keep saying "sorry!". But I'll PM you the gory details as to why/how, and how/when that might change.

3592 days sober!

Just got back from 10 days in the Arizona desert and, yes, it was hot. High of 101F (38C) on a couple of the days, but there was always a nice breeze so it was quite tolerable. Toured a Cold War missile silo, hiked a mountain, visited Tombstone and spent some quality time with family. Lots of walking, lots of water and many laps in our private pool.

As I approach 10 years sober I am thankful, and grateful, that I have a place to post my monthly triumphs! Not many would understand...

Thanks everyone!

Not many indeed.


For me it's 3287 days, or shorter: 9 years today. A week or so ago, I also passed the 100K EUR mark not spent on booze and cigs.


So yeah, I'm gonna continue this run.
