One Day (thanks Bob)

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that ONE DAY, something happened.  I guess things had gotten to the point that I just had no choice but to surrender.  I had just enough AA meetings under my very wet belt that I understood finally that I had to surrender.  Just give up my drinking to a Higher Power.

ONE DAY was a concept that was briefly discussed in a meeting yesterday.  I think we've all had that ONE DAY experience.  Or else, we would not be here trying to recover -- yet.  Please use the comment section to briefly describe your ONE DAY experience.

that I miss so many people who have given up trying to stop using drugs and/or drinking.  The problem is that I don't remember most of them.  There seems to such a turnover that I can't possibly keep up with everyone or even notice (with any regularity) who's missing.  But when they can make it back, I'll be here waiting.

Tolerance is the first principle of community; it is the spirit which conserves the best that all men think.
- Helen Keller

One Day I woke up and thought - I can't do this anymore. I called AA and the rest is history, as they say.

I'm glad none of your dear friends are amoung those who have left our program. That is a heartbreak like no other.

My one day came when I was seriously thinking of running my car into a bridge abutment. I didn't see how I would ever be happy. What a difference from then to now.
