Will you be staying at Anonymous camp Jon? A friend of mine stays there! He's a hoot!

I'm giving this a nudge over to Get Involved, since I think that's a better fit.

I think congrats are in order too, if that date's what I think it is. That's quite an achievement!

Definite congrats are in order Unjon! That's a lot of one-day-at-a-time, and I'm glad we have you around. I grew up on swing & the era that you play, I should try to swing by & say hello.

I can still two step/waltz.. That is if my pardner can help me stand up..My daughter drags me out to big band dances.. That's how we got our oldest.. Polish my belt buckle in a slow dance with mom. Nasty cigar in one hand, a bottle of beer in the other and a bottle in my pocket.. Then go puke at the end of the night..

There's a few of us over at Retrofrolic, too. Including me, 6/18/1990.

Damn, you've been sober almost as long as I've been alive. And I'm no spring chicken. Btw, happy birthday/anniversary! :D

9/11/05 for me, the funny part about attending BM sober is being able to remember the entire week. The highlight of my first burn in 2011: I was sitting at the Burning Desires meeting wearing Mickey Mouse shoes and sunglasses, cause that's how I roll, listening to the gratitude flow from others who were enjoying the playa as much as I was. I was suddenly struck with the memory of being a newcomer, convinced that my life was over and I was NEVER going to have fun EVER again. HAHA I sure wish I could have traveled back in time to give myself a pep talk and a swift kick in the ass... I can't wait to see you guys in Anonymous Village this year! Congrats on your anniversary unjonharley! See you on the road to happy dustany!

Jon, I was reading this thread and noticed the day you started your sobriety. God bless you my friend. I will come to meet you this year. I'll be camping in the same vicinity as you! ((((UJ))))

You will always find a willing ear with me... just celebrated my 27th "birthday" on the 20th. We should be somewhere around 3:40 and C or D... Look for the Destiny Lounge sign, although we are just a small camp this year.

I usually hit the noon mtg. at Anon. Village. 1-1-90 for me. I have now been sober for as long as I drank.

I was told that it takes as long to get sober as it did to become alcaholic.

I'm glad you finally made it. 8)
