that I don't have knee-jerk reactions. I'm amazed at the "contempt prior to investigation" of some of my friends on Facebook regarding things in the news. "Hang 'em!" "Lock him up and throw away the key." " He's a Democrat. He can't be right." "He's a Republican. He sucks."
I don't have to over-react. I can gather the facts first. That usually eliminates the need to act or even think irressponsibly. I can pause when agitated or disturbed. Isn't this what recovery is about?
OK. A friend with 23 years in recovery and is still very active with service work had a farewll party last night. There were about 40 of us at his dinner. He's moving back to West Hollywood after being in Houston 3 years. What a fun time, being with so many real people.
