"One Day At A Time"

I wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who have encouraged me on my goal of "Staying Sober One Day at a Time".....I added this goal yesterday, because I wanted to keep track of how long it has been for me since my last drink.  I have befriended a couple of members of the Alcoholic Recovery group, and they track their sobriety this way.
As of today, I have been sober for 7504 days, or 20 years and 6 months.  Evidently, some of my friends got the impression that I have only now begun the experience of living life without alcohol.  I just felt I should clarify the situation.  I doubt that processing the grief of losing one's spouse would be the optimal time in which to try to kick the habit....That being said, the only way I am able to remain sober is to take things "one day at a time."  I didn't drink yesterday; haven't had a drink today; and I have no plans on drinking tomorrow....after that???  Who the hell knows??  Certainly not me...LOL.
Thank you all for your support.........give a look & a listen to this from The Eagles & Joe Walsh.......

 Well you know, I was always the first to arrive at the party.Ohh-ohhh, and the last to leave the scene of the crime.Well it started with a couple of beers.And it went I don’t know how many ye-ears.Like a runaway train, headed for the end of the line.Well, I finally got around to admitthat I might have a problem.But I thought it was just too damn big of a mountain to climb.Well, I got down on my knees and said he-ey.I just can’t go on livin’ this wa-ay.Guess I’ll have to learn to live my life one day at a time.Oh yeaah! One day at a time.Oh yeaah! One day at a time.Oh yeaah! One day at a time.Oh yeaah! One day at a time.Well, I finally got around to admit that I was the problem.When I used to put the blame oneverybody’s shoulders but mine.All the friends I used to run with are go-one.Though I hadn’t planned on livin’ this lo-ong.Have to learn to live my life one day at a time.It was somethin’ I was too blind to see.I got help from somethin’ greater than me-e.And I have to learn to live my life one day at a time.

I will admit I was a bit curious when I saw your goal, but now that you have explained, I understand.

Anyone one that knows anything about alcohol, knows that it can only be done one day at a time.
You have set a great goal and I hope you continue to meet it.
