doin' the deal ...
Most of the news from my recent physical exam is pretty good. However, my cholesterol levels are nothing impressive. My good cholesterol is too low and my bad cholesterol is too high. Changes in my diet are underway as I type. And I'm on a regimented exercise program as well.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that a friend showed up at 2 meetings yesterday -- he had 8 years of continuous sobriety, relapsed over a year ago and has not been able to put together more than a month or two since then. He relapsed last Friday and almost commited suicide, but stopped short.
He will be the first to tell you that he cut waaaaaay down on meetings, quit calling people in recovery (including his sponsor), put his relationship and 2 jobs in front of sobriety etc...
Where have I heard all this before?
for all the unfamiliar faces at the nooner yesterday
that I have been asked to read "How It Works" in 3 of the last 4 meetings I've attended
that I now have some experience in sobriety that I can share with non-believers
"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it."
