A matter of convenience




Ya know, I didn't drink and get drunk only when it was convenient ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I didn't get sober because it was convenient
that I don't go to AA meetings only when it's convenient
that I didn't work the steps because it was convenient
that I don't pray only when it's convenient
that I don't meet with sponsees only when it's convenient
that I sometimes volunteer to help when it's not convenient
that I don't blog only when it's convenient

I gave my life to be the person I am. Was it worth it?

It got to where it was more convenient to get sober than continue fighting.

If I only blogged when it was convenient, it would be once or twice a month.
When I was drinking I'm sure others would say "Why today, why on this important day would you screw up and get drunk?"

Convenience always seemed selfish to me. But then I did many things that weren't convenient. I'm seeking the balance now in life.

Dave, thanks for that. I agree. And I am grateful that you blog when it is convenient or not.

As for convenience, never did this there was any with dealing with Alcoholism. (Hugs)Indigo

I've been an inconvenience to others all my life.

Yes, it was WORTH IT! In the case of Richard Bach, and in the case of dAAve

The Bach Tower (Lake Wales, FL)...one of our favorite 'picnic' places any time we cross the state. A place dripping with sereneness...
