00:
02:13,213 -- 00:02:16,614

I must've...

I must've dozed off or something.

6

00:
02:16,650 -- 00:02:19,380

I apologize. Watch your head.

Watch your... I'm sorry.

7

00:
02:19,419 -- 00:02:21,944

Ready, one, two, let's go.

8

00:
02:56,923 -- 00:02:58,914

You're gonna be fine.

9

00:
02:58,959 -- 00:03:00,984

You're gonna be fine.

10

00:
03:01,027 -- 00:03:03,018

Just relax.

11

00:
04:52,072 -- 00:04:55,667

Hi guys. My name's Craig.

I'm an alcoholic.

12

00:
04:55,709 -- 00:04:57,802

Hi Craig.

13

00:
04:57,844 -- 00:04:59,937

Today is my five-year anniversary.

14

00:
04:59,980 -- 00:05:02,346

That's five years of sobriety.

15

00:
05:07,187 -- 00:05:10,179

Um, you know,

I know a few of you

16

00:
05:10,223 -- 00:05:11,986

are just getting started

with this thing.

17

00:
05:12,025 -- 00:05:14,550

I just wanted you to know

it does get easier.

18

00:
05:14,594 -- 00:05:16,619

It never ends.

19

00:
05:16,663 -- 00:05:18,722

Lord knows it never ends.

20

00:
05:18,765 -- 00:05:21,529

But if you stick with it,

it does get easier.

21

00:
05:21,568 -- 00:05:23,627

And believe me,

22

00:
05:23,670 -- 00:05:26,195

if I can do it, then so can you.

23

00:
05:26,239 -- 00:05:28,571

That's all I wanted to say.

24

00:
05:28,608 -- 00:05:31,941

Thank you, Craig.

And congratulations again.

25

00:
05:34,614 -- 00:05:37,515

On that note, I think

26

00:
05:37,550 -- 00:05:40,110

there's someone else here

who has an anniversary

27

00:
05:40,153 -- 00:05:43,418

that they need to celebrate today.

Am I right?

28

00:
05:43,456 -- 00:05:45,481

Sarah?

29

00:
05:45,525 -- 00:05:48,858

Oh, um... hi.

30

00:
05:48,895 -- 00:05:52,126

I'm Sarah.

And I'm an alcoholic.

31

00:
05:52,165 -- 00:05:54,531

Hi Sarah.

32

00:
05:54,567 -- 00:05:57,627

This isn't... it's not really

33

00:
05:57,671 -- 00:05:59,662

as big a deal as Craig's.

34

00:
05:59,706 -- 00:06:03,699

It's just I'm three months today.

35

00:
06:09,182 -- 00:06:13,175

Sarah, is there anything else

you'd like to say?

36

00:
06:13,219 -- 00:06:15,119

No, that's all.

37

00:
06:15,155 -- 00:06:17,146

No? Okay, well,

38

00:
06:17,190 -- 00:06:20,125

unless anyone else has anything

they'd like to share,

39

00:
06:20,160 -- 00:06:23,095

I guess we're done here.

40

00:
06:23,129 -- 00:06:26,223

Okay.

41

00:
06:29,936 -- 00:06:32,063

Lord,

42

00:
06:32,105 -- 00:06:33,766

grant me the serenity

43

00:
06:33,807 -- 00:06:36,970

to accept the things

I cannot change,

44

00:
06:37,010 -- 00:06:40,468

the courage to change

the things that I can

45

00:
06:40,513 -- 00:06:43,949

and the wisdom

to know the difference,

46

00:
06:43,983 -- 00:06:46,679

living one day at a time,

47

00:
06:46,720 -- 00:06:50,087

enjoying one moment at a time,

48

00:
06:50,123 -- 00:06:52,114

accepting hardships

49

00:
06:52,158 -- 00:06:54,820

as a pathway to peace.

50

00:
06:54,861 -- 00:06:57,125

Amen.

51

00:
07:02,469 -- 00:07:04,960

Thank you.

52

00:
07:44,310 -- 00:07:46,676

Sh*t.

53

00:
07:46,713 -- 00:07:49,477

- Hey Sarah.

- Hi.

54

00:
07:49,516 -- 00:07:51,040

- Hey.

- Kevin.

55

00:
07:51,084 -- 00:07:52,244

- Yeah, Kevin.

- Kev...

56

00:
07:52,285 -- 00:07:54,253

That's right.

57

00:
07:54,287 -- 00:07:56,585

I just wanted to come

say congratulations.

58

00:
07:56,623 -- 00:07:59,183

It's a really big deal.

You should be proud of yourself.

59

00:
07:59,225 -- 00:08:01,489

- Thank you.

- Yeah, you're welcome.

60

00:
08:01,528 -- 00:08:04,122

Um, and I was thinking maybe

61

00:
08:04,164 -- 00:08:06,530

if you wanted to go celebrate

62

00:
08:06,566 -- 00:08:08,261

it would be my treat.

63

00:
08:08,301 -- 00:08:10,633

I could take you out or...

64

00:
08:11,638 -- 00:08:13,970

Uh, not tonight.

65

00:
08:14,007 -- 00:08:15,998

That's all right.

66

00:
08:16,042 -- 00:08:17,703

You've got plans.

67

00:
08:17,744 -- 00:08:19,803

On the couch... a movie.

68

00:
08:19,846 -- 00:08:21,711

Fair enough.

69

00:
08:21,748 -- 00:08:23,841

All right, get home safe.

70

00:
08:23,883 -- 00:08:25,646

71

00:
08:25,685 -- 00:08:27,550
