Who shall I be today?

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I never suffered from denial of my alcoholism.  I did, however, deny that my alcoholism was the cause of any personal problems.  It wasn't until I sat in enough AA meetings that things began to make some sense.

that, as a sober man, I enjoy doing volunteer work.  For decades, my mother suggested I get involved with volunteer wok in some degree.  (She had always been heavily involved with her church activities)  But my job(s) and bar hours gave me plenty of excuses prevented me from getting involved.  I can look back and see how difficult it would have been to get involved whilst sitting on a barstool.

that the results of my physical exam from last week are excellent.  Everything is working the way it should but I still have a follow-up on some artery blockage.  (I've had peripheral artery disease for about 5 years)

loses the present and risks the future.
