My sobriety date is January 22, 2012. One of the reasons why I feel like I have been able to stay sober this long, is because of the TAFS summer trip. I gained new tools to grow as a young person in recovery. TAFS is an experience that I can never recreate or replace. It has taught me that I could have fun without the use of drugs and alcohol, and that I could gain fellowship with real friends. The amount of gratitude is unmeasurable, and it has surely change the course of my life.
