That's how many days my son has sober.
I am so proud of his efforts to stay clean. We saw him yesterday and he continues to make progress. He's opening up more and it's really noticeable how that is helping him in his recovery. He's now one of the "senior" residents at his home and is therefore called upon to help guide the newcomers. The house manager and our son have an awesome mutual respect for each other and it's a joy to see.
I am realistic about relapse. But, I'm choosing to not focus on that because #1, it hasn't happened yet and #2, it serves no purpose for me to worry about it.
I think I'm most impressed that son is very genuine about his feelings and recovery. He doesn't gloss over anything. He doesn't claim to have this licked, he knows it's life long recovery. He calls his sponsor A LOT. He prays for God to help with his obsession to use. I could go on and on...
He makes me proud and I love him so very much!
