Staying fresh



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a sponsee who gets it

for those who do what they say they're gonna do -- it's called integrity! Those who don't do what they say they're gonna do provide me with pertinent information about themselves.

that I've really been enjoying my life recently. It was just a few years ago that I was passing out every night after drinking all day (most days I drank 12-15 hours). I thought I was so lucky to be able to drink that way. Nobody, I mean nobody, got in my way.

for the (usually) intangible lessons I pick up in Al-Anon meetings.

The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.

I'm glad you're a winner, but not a rat.

Integrity...something I am working on. It is important to me that I can be dependable. I didn't use to care...now I do thanks to learning to be honest with myself in the rooms.
