a life of its own

Shit happens Things occur in daily life that I don't like. Often.

"I realized I had to separate my sobriety from everything else that was going on in my life. No matter what happened or didn't happen. I couldn't drink. In fact, none of these things that I was going through had anything to do with my sobriety; the tides of life flow endlessly for better or worse, both good and bad, and I cannot allow my sobriety to become dependent on these ups and downs of living. Sobriety must live a life of its own."
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, Fourth Edtion, pages 450, 451

2 ears / 1 mouth. Good thing ears won't get me in trouble.

I'm glad that things occur..... makes the time go by quicker! : ) and I'm grateful for only one mouth too! and that sometimes I can shut it!

Seems for years my sobriety was dependent upon everything and everyone else around me. Thank God I came to AA and got a solution that works for me.
