it's my anniversary

Today marks seven years without a drink.

I had set a calendar alarm on my phone, to go off at 7 AM this morning - just as I was getting off work for my weekend. I chose that time because the woman who comes in at 7 AM, allowing me to leave, is in recovery as well and I wanted to share the news with her. Her demon of choice was opioid pills and I think she has about four years clean.

Seven years seem to have passed so quickly, yet so slowly. Tallahassee was a long time ago. I still look at the Tallahassee mug shots every day, but I see fewer and fewer familiar faces.
