That's awesome! Be so proud of yourself-- only you have seen all the hard moments where you've had to push and only you can know exactly how much gusto and self-faith that has taken! Keep going!!
Also- treat yourself to something nice- a massage, a nice face cream, a day off, grab 2 friends and get a nice meal :)
You're neither clever nor funny.
What did he say?
What a childish remark. Username checks out.
Whoever downvoted you did not like the second part of what you said
Same, not two years, a few months now after a year long relapse from 5 years sober. I can’t believe the effect alcohol has on my mind. Happy you’re through it! Let’s keep going!
I kicked a substance habit after decades successfully, starting today, I’m adding alcohol to the list.
I didn’t think it was that big of problem, but here I am hung over on a beautiful day while my wife takes the kids to the park.
Best of luck man, your kids will thank you when you're older
I fortunately quit before kids were old enough to know “drunk dad”. Makes me proud
Man, I feel that. Some people can handle it. I can’t. Only ever making bad situations worse and good situations bad. Good luck man. Here if you need to vent to a stranger.
Will do. I’m definitely better than I used to be, but alcohol just changes me.
Thanks for the note!
Keep it up! You got this!
Good job OP.
You’re where I want to be!
You can do it! Have faith in yourself!
You can be there in two years if you start today!
Wishing you so much success in this quest! I hope you'll forgive the unsolicited suggestion, but if you try AA and it doesn't work for you, I recommend Smart Recovery. It's a very practical alternative without the religious stuff or the aggressive pressure to commit to constant meeting attendance and financial contributions.
I wish I'd known about it when I first started trying to quit. Best of luck and keep us posted!
Thank you! I never heard of Smart Recovery but I am checking it out now!
Congratulations!!! Room on the sober wagon for one more?
Come join us!
ONE OF US! ONE OF US!
Bro, do you know how awesome that is to be able to do that under the current circumstances? That's amazing!
I’m not going to lie, this past year has been rough.
Fucking celebrate it lady. Grab a cake, a cola, and go ham, you deserve it. Or go on a Timothee Chalamet marathon, or whatever makes you happy. Celebrate yourself.
Welcome to the club. Sobriety feels pretty good, huh?
It’s pretty great.
My wife was in a similar position regarding her drinking. She just hit 9 months' sobriety a few days ago, and I can attest how difficult but worth every step that journey has been for her. Congratulations on your 2 years!
Thank you! And all the love to your wife.
As someone who has had many family members and loved ones struggle with addiction: thank you, and I am so proud of you. I’ve seen how hard it can be. Two years is a massive accomplishment.
We're proud of you, op
Hell yes! That's awesome. Way to go!!
You learn more from failure than from success. Don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character
How did you do it? I make it a day or so before I'm back on my shit.
It sounds cliche but you really have to fully want to get sober. Until your heart and mind are committed to the idea, it’ll never work. After that, don’t try to do it alone. Find others in recovery. Tell friends/family about your struggles. Reach out your hand for help. Someone will grab it.
Trying to re-evaluate my relationship with alcohol myself right now, what made you give it up?
It was starting to affect my career and my relationships, like my entire life was structured around drinking. I did hit a rock bottom where I had to take a hard look at my choices and realized I didn’t like where I was heading. It was so hard to admit it to myself.
Don’t you guys have an AA sub for this kinda thing?
You are absolutely glowing.
Nice work sister! One day at a time. 💖
That so cool I cannot wait to beat that benchmark I'm 2weeks in but feeling good already. You're doing an amazing job, keep at it 👏
Is this subreddit now just people saying they've stopped drinking or taking drugs and posting an awkward picture that says nothing?
Honestly so fucking bored of it. Loved what the sub was initially for but it’s just being overtaken by random selfies that could be of anyone accompanied by a “I did it” caption and 50 million dribbling comments saying “I’m so proud of you” “you got this”
Good for you, that is awesome!
That's awesome. Keep up all the hard work!
You have shining eyes ✨ congratulations on not taking away your light!
Good job girl!!
Congratulations, that’s awesome!
Good gravy Davey, that is awesome!!!!!
I'm so proud of you! That is not easy to do.
I am so proud of you! Great work.
Thanks for sharing your story of success. You are a true inspiration.
i love your hair!
Congratulations that’s good news. You definitely should celebrate.
I lost my brother to drugs and alcohol abuse and I just want to say how proud I am of you, I know I don't know you but I have some understanding of the Hell it took to get you (and others like you) to your here and now. Well done. Keep going! 💜
I'm so sorry about your brother. Proud of YOU today for being here and being good ❤️
Thank you so much ❤💜❤
Well done. I'm proud of you
So proud of you love!!!
Yes! I am very proud of you. Rock on.
Tell me how you did it please
Well done 👏
The thing I was afraid of was letting my family down or having them be ashamed of me. When they responded with only love and without judgment, it was a weight off and it let me fully focus on recovery.
I had almost a year and then got hooked on Kratom. Don’t ever take that shit, it’s sneaky. Congrats on your two!
You look great. Onto the next 2 years and hopefully many many more!
Welcome to this side, you amazing, beautiful person! Well done.
Congratulations! Treat yourself to something nice. That’s a massive accomplishment. Rewarding yourself for these check points are sacrosanct. Cheers and love!
One year and 8 months. Feel so much better.
To me, that's not 'crazy' that's the result of some incredibly hard work on your behalf. Well done, that's really impressive.
I had a look on your profile and the embroidery you do is amazing! It looks fantastic! Keep going!
And you look so beautiful! Live life. Enjoy every day! 💜
Good job op
You go girl! Proud of you 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
What a huge mile stone. Your inner light is so bright, keep on shining!
Hell yeah!! I'm proud of you! Keep going and don't give up!
That's amazing, way to go!
Great job on you mate!
💐💐💐 great job queen 👑
You’re a fuckin rockstar, brah
I'm trying to be you one day girl! Thank you for the inspiration!

Congratulations to you! It's a long, difficult road... but you take one step at a time and you'll eventually look back and realize hom far you've come. Keep it up! You got this!
Life can get crazy. You look great. Kudos!
Good for you. I just broke a 25 day streak of not getting drunk, I'll get there someday

Right On!!!! That's awesome!!! Also I am Digging the bookshelves! Any of your books help you along your journey?
Proud of you friend, IWNDWYT
I never thought I would have the willpower to quit, but life is so much better without it. Glad that you're here with me killing this sobriety game :)
Amazing! Love your hair (and your dedication too)!
Good for you. Sobriety is the best decision I’ve made as an adult
Be super proud of yourself !! I’ve e got twelve years in. The first two were the hardest. It gets easier everyday.
Well done! Also, I love your hair!!
Nice work, keep coming back! :)
You are awesome!!!
Good on you
we are proud of you, you are valued, keep it up, thanks for sharing positive vibes on the internet, we need more of that! <3
That’s fabulous 😃 Your best years are ahead.
Hell yes! 🎊🎊🎊 That's a great accomplishment.
Hell yeah! You’re doing a kick ass job, and I just know you must feel so much better. :)
That's amazing! The road to recovery isn't an easy one, good on you for staying strong! You should be proud of what you've accomplished!
Nice job! Great smile!
That's not crazy- that's awesome!!! Good for you!
Good job!! That's quite an accomplishment!
That is amazing. 😊
I’m really happy for you!
Congratulations! You look fantastic and most of all happy! Keep up the great work 👏🏼😁
its called a miracle hope u never forget that. At a girl.
Two years is a phenomenal accomplishment, given that some moments can drive people to desperation-every minute counts. Every second counts. Most of all, you count. I am proud of you, and for you. You look so radiant! As Spock would say, “live long, and prosper” Lots of hugs!
That is GREAT discipline! What an achievement! Congratulations!
Really proud of you, kind stranger. One day at a time. You got this!
Having done this for a while, I believe the first two years are the hardest ( as in most of the change ). I didn’t drink, but I still felt like a drunk .... congratulations
I'm a complete stranger to you but I am so damn proud of you.
I'm just over 3 years, so I'm celebrating with you sister! You look beautiful, happy and healthy. Here's to the best life and the best that's yet to come. <3
Happy ReBirthday! Keep it up!
Wowwww! It’s hard but one day at a time turns into 10 years! God bless you! Keep doing what you’re doing. Xoxox
Then why bother commenting?
What does that have anything to do with anything I’m just trying to browse memes and your pathetic ass shows up ur just trying to feel good about yourself but you just need to shit the f up
Too bad you aren’t on a meme sub then isn’t it?
What does that have anything to do with anything I’m just trying to browse great posts and your pathetic ass shows up ur just trying to feel good about yourself but you just need to shit the f up
tl;dr: Don't be an arsehole.
Bonkers if you will
Congratulations!! That’s amazing.
May I ask what was your motivation for getting sober? I have a close family member struggling with drinking and don’t know how to help or if there’s anything I can even do
Keep it up! Press on! Congratulations!
YESSSSSSS, good for you! I hope whatever program or self motivation you have been doing continues
Awesome, keep it up!
Congratulations winner. Rock the fuck on!
Congratulations, you look beautiful and shiny, salute you friend.
Good on you, that's a HUGE achievement! 💜

Congrats, that’s awesome
Congrats! One day at a time...
wow, congratulations on your 2 years of sobriety.
Im very happy for you, that is a lovely pic and I bet it’s way better than 2 years ago! Keep going and you will make it! I believe in you
2 months yesterday for me 🙂 aiming for a year at least, or for good.
Congratulations! That’s so awesome!!
Congrats! That's some daily discipline and quality self-care! Brava!
Gratz so there still some good news 2021
You are looking healthy and lovely! Way to go!
So what do you do with all the free time? I’m two months in and didn’t know how much time I was wasting being drunk and hungover
Oh, man. Filling those Sunday afternoon hours was brutal. I learnt to bake bread. It takes a long time and requires patience.
Congratulations and continued good luck moving forward beautiful
You are AMAZING! Congratulations!
So proud of you and for you x
Crazy thing with alcohol addiction is the time lapse effect when you quit. It took me multiple attempts. Every time I would think wow I’m doing great it has to have been 3 months since I had any alcohol. Nope it’s three days. You’re definitely past that part now. Just don’t let your guard down and keep up the good work.
Congratulations! Reading your post made me smile
Not crazy at all. It's a testament to your strength of character. So proud of you.
Well done babe! It's a really hard road and you're in the driver's seat! Stay strong and be so very,very proud of yourself. Much love to you💕
Master of your domain - very proud of you.
Congratulations! Nothing is better than sobriety, not even the bad days. You're rocking this!
You look beautiful congratulations! We are all here for you
Congratulations! Keep coming back.
That’s so awesome... a lot if hard work, you should be very proud!!!
Hey, congradulations! Life is for living isnt it? If you are ready for a funny story from john melany, try either new in town, or the comback kid. In one of those he tells of his balckout drinking problem, a too wild party, a beoken pool table and stolen heirloom pictures. Its hilarious...and its what turned the table for him .
You’ve clearly got a flawless understanding of addiction.
