Day # 3000 (and counting)



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Step 2.  Me?  Insane?

that I didn't give up before I grasped the concept behind this step.  I could not (for the life of me) understand why it was necessary to accept a higher power.  But then I didn't have any intention of stopping drinking either.

that my insanity takes on slightly different looks today.  My thinking can still go "there".  If you don't believe me, just ask my partner.  He'll be more than happy to expound on this issue.

for the excitement this week at my recovery center (Lambda Center).  You can just feel it in the air.  It's tangible.  The fellowship is ready to celebrate our gratitude.

that I've gone 3000 continuous days without a beer, rum/coke or any other alcohol.
Incredible.  Amazing.  Higher Power.

until I met a man who had no feet.

That is a lot of days. Good for you. And yes, I do believe that I was pretty insane when I came in. Might still have a touch of it. But at least I recognize it now.
Glad that everyone is excited about the conference.

You make me so grateful. Others would love to have our 'problems'. And lets hear how many posts--I bow down to you, my liege!
