Perseverance

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I woke up sober this morning, just like the past 1621 mornings

that these days when I get agitated, I know enough to just shut up

for the 10th step and the principle associated with it - perseverance

that my best thinking wanted me to stop trying AA; I am so glad I didn't give up 5 minutes before the miracle

that recovery helps to level out my playing field

that every sober day is unique; when I was drinking, especially in the last year, most days seemed the same as the day preceeding

God helps those who persevere.
-The Qur'an

Yes, my last days drinking were a monotonous repeat of the day before...every single day. I like the excitement of the new day now!

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another. --Walter Elliott

I guess ignorance (incredible ignorance) is really cute!

I'm glad that you didn't give up and are proof of the miracle. Have a great day.
