I try not to romanticize my drinking days, but memories of those times (good and bad) are necessary for me to keep fresh. Yesterday I was reminded about those first days of drinking as a teenager and the warm feeling of Drambouie as it slowly slipped down my throat. I can look back on that and know now that my alcoholism began then.
for this quote from the Big book, 4th edition, page 450 ...... "I had to separate my sobriety from everything else that was going on in my life. No matter what happened or didn't happen, I couldn't drink."
that today, I get to chair the first of 4 Wednesday noon speaker meetings this month
that my work on lowering my expectations (of everything) is on track and working well
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
