    Default SMART 2 Years

    Hi All

    As of later on this afternoon I will have been a member of SMART for 2 Years. At first before going to meetings I looked at a lot of the information and downloaded, printed and did a lot of reading. Quite a bit of it was overwhelming, but then I started looking at things/items that applied to me more then others. Overall then I started going to meetings to just see how they were and how they went. What a difference from other programs-- plus I did not have to go anywhere-- could do all straight from home; what a blessing that was. At point during the winter was doing 44 to 65 meetings a month to satisfy Probation requirements at the time.

    I have in my notes August; but that may be when I first filled out the paperwork to join--September may be the first month I was really going to meetings.

    So very well done lynn50!!!

    Congratulations on 2 years of a life well lived

    "looking at things/items that applied to me more than others" - wonderful! Truly 'Take the best and leave the rest!'

    Marvellous efforts on your part and your support of others and contributions here are truly appreciated.
    What got me sober was TRYING to get sober. Often when I lapsed, picked up, drank, I FELT thoroughly beaten. I thought at that time "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from that thought just a little, I thought "I'll have another GO!" It was a few little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here!
