Chip In (My 2-Year Anniversary)

2-Year Chip in AlKHall Anonymous recovery sobriety alcoholism

2-Year Chip In

January 11, 2013 marked the end of my second year sober. When i picked up the above 2-year chip, i had this to share.

There have been times in the last two years where i really struggled in sobriety. What i learned from those moments is that when i thought the AA program wasn’t working, it turned out i wasn’t working my program hard enough.

A dry toast to another year and many more to come. Thank you all for your support and comments. The above chip is, in no small way, thanks to you. Please, keep coming back.


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.

  8. It is amazing how quickly those “one days” begin to add up to a whole lot more. I can not express how happy I am to see you working so hard, and exceedingly well, at your recovery you are an inspiration and a role model for me.

      Keep coming back,

      Al K Hall
