Hi everyone. Happy new year 2016. It has been a while since my first postings. I am now over 2 years sober and have more insight into what it takes to stay sober long term. I have been in a learning process as to what works to keep me sober. I haven’t been to any AA meetings. I have read books and researched the web to develop my own personal recovery process. I have come up with my own long-term sobriety program called MAGG(Motivation ,Acceptance, Grit and Gratitude). My next post will be my starting to develop MAGG which I first called my equation for long-term sobriety. Then I will post more about MAGG which developed over my 2 years of sobriety. First this next post will reveal how stopping my drinking affected my mind and body.
