    well done is such a broad word to describe the one moment at a time baby steps that it often takes.

    it is indeed monumental, and it takes a while for people to just accept that "oh, he doesnt do those things anymore" and to cease being a curiosity.

    for me it is experiencing life, my joy, my pain, my successes and my failures, sober and without self medication!!

    mazel tov!!
