Turn left at the next corner, please

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am just as enthusiastic about staying sober as I was about drinking

that staying sober is not a gray area for me; its either complete sobriety OR just give up and go get drunk

that you guys in AA taught me about needing a defense against having the first drink

for another very, very good 1st step meeting yesterday with a newcomer present (complete with a black eye and it didn't look good on her!)

for cats, coffee and computers

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

I ♥ this:
"I am just as enthusiastic about staying sober as I was about drinking."
Hey! I'm going to steal it! That's right, and there's not a thing you can do about it! Why, by the time you find me, I'll have shared this in several meetings. Bwa-ha-ha!

Glad you are doing well Dave.
