It's Official!


I am happy to announce I have recieved my official Letter of Completion from TPAPN.It was frustrating, humiliating and financially devastating but at long last it is over! Thank you to all who have provided me encouragement and emotional support. To all the current participants in punitive, draconian monitoring programs: Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, the absurdity eventually comes to a close. I wish everyone the best of luck and patience.

Good for you. The process is expensive, long and humiliating and you survived!!!

Congrats! Got clean and sober as a young waitress, only had to prove to boss I was serious that last time. My hat is off to anyone who makes it through the BON ringer!

Congratulations to you. I know from previous posts it has been a long road for you. I cannot imagine how freeing it is. I am "supposed" to be done in the next 2 months. I have been thinking that I really should sign up to be an advocate or something. This process was so trying when I first started, heck it still can be. Remembering that hopeless and helpless feeling I had when starting out is one of the things I use to stay humble and sober. Congrats again, you should be proud of yourself.
