that I was present to hear the short, 30-minute AA story of a guy who seems to be working a fine program of recovery
for a situation that occurred yesterday afternoon when my program worked me! I was able to put pause when agitated into action, which meant doing absolutely nothing besides pausing.
My old self would have been cussing and slamming doors and otherwise making a complete fool of myself. For no reason.
that a friend had 8 years of sobriety before relapsing last year. Since then, he's not been able (or willing) to stay sober more than a few weeks consecutively. Watching his life unravel is painful but at least he keeps comng back. His example reminds me how difficult it can be to return to the rooms, giving me just a little more motivation to stay the course I sail today.
that I will eat lunch with my sister today - something we rarely do any more
for the discipline (or is it motivation?) to go to the gym and work out on days I don't have scheduled with my personal trainer
