Going on 18 months sober

Sitting at work counting down before it's shift change, and I realize I have less than a month till my 18mnth sobriety date, fast approaches. I would like to mark the occasion with a watch, but what to get? I am a man of meager means, so I was thinking Mako II or Gshock like a MudMan. Any thoughts from my well mannered fellow brethren, from these options or others that come to mind?

Firstly, amazing achievement, dude. Mako sounds like a great choice. They do a very nice red dial/burgundy dial, which I think it's super nice. Depends on your style tho!

I鈥檝e recently bought the duro, perfect for knocking around, looks smart and a bargain price, oh and well done sir, I lost my brother to alcohol at 34 so always nice seeing people winning the war 馃挭

Honestly? Go for another G-Shock. A tough and resilient watch for a tough and resilient man. Congratulations!

Get yourself a Casioak can鈥檛 go wrong looks classy if needed and can get ran over by a tank and still keep going. Congrats on the 18 months brother 馃憣

I have a friend on here that is sending me this model in blue I think. So I'll have that to run with!! Hey sorry to hear about your brother. My fiance lost her battle of 8yra sobriety a month before we were to be wed. Rocked my foundation, so I can only guess at what it's like to lose a sibling. I'm gonna keep on trucking in my recovery, ever forward!!

That's intense!! I'm gonna have to find that, regardless of it's this month or down the road lol

Sorry to hear that my watch brother, you gotta keep on going for them and never give up, always nice to meet people on these sites, the watch addiction is better than the other addictions, hopefully you enjoy the new watch and keep building brother 馃挭

I noticed the shocked emoji, I hope you took it as the compliment it was intended to be, and not an insult.

Congratulations. Celebrating 18 months away from the gates of Hell is an awesome achievement. Well done! As long as you can afford it, I say buy whatever puts a smile on your face and reminds you of your journey. You are not alone. BTW, I like the Mako.

I got myself this Festina to mark 2 years of sobriety.

I've had my own roller coaster ride with sobriety, so I know what it means.

Congratulations. It does get easier as the time passes more. But sometimes and some days after life problems arise, it will be calling your name and it is the most familiar path to take. But don鈥檛 let that get to you. Just remember that it doesn鈥檛 make us do it, we just choose to. Take that and keep that power to yourself and keep moving forward. I鈥檝e been down that hole for 10 years straight but I decided to take control instead. You鈥檝e got this!

As others have said, congrats on a hard road. As for what watch to buy to celebrate? I鈥檓 not going to recommend one. Instead keep your eyes open and you will find one that calls to you.
