Character Reference

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that a small adjustment to my Mom's anti-depression meds 3 weeks ago really seem to have helped

that I did not wake up with a hangover this morning after a night of not drinking

for a super busy weekend which kept me out of a bad neighborhood (do I really have to say it?)

for the few hours I spent answering Intergroup phones (I was an hour late Saturday morning - 7:15am instead of 6am - but apparently no harm done)

for the fundraiser at Lambda Center that raised about $2700 in one hour

for a sponsee who is able to be honest with me

that I always did what I said I was going to do, except when I was drinking

that I am a day-er at a time-er (words invented and inspired by a fellow Anonymous Alcoholic-er)

for phone and internet chat with Hayden in Trinidad last night

for a new topic on SOBRIETY SOCIETY

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, and only character endures.

Go on, say it. Or don't. We assume you are speaking of your mind. Or speaking your mind. Or something.

WOW!!! That's a LOT of funds raised! Great job!!!

and somebody somewhere changed One Day At a Time in my circle. They are too lazy to say the whole thing, so they just say "ODATT" pronounced "Oh-dat" : ) Its goofy, but aren't we all?
