I went where I was fed ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Step 9.  On completing it when I was about 9 months sober, it opened up a new life for me.  The weight on my shoulders (which I didn't know was there) was lifted.  I felt free!  Coincidentally (yeah, right) I stopped going to my bar every night about this time also.  I no longer needed to be there.  My longtime drinking friends had changed (or had I changed?) and it wasn't much fun to be around them any more.  I had found new friends who were sober and in recovery.  I seemed to get what I needed from them.
I was a different person than just a year before.
