Today, I am choosing to ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have so many good choices to make today; nine years ago my choices were pretty much limited to when to stop drinking coffee in the morning and switch to beer.  That point generally occurred about 7am - 9am.
Then, I had to decide when to switch to rum/coke.

that I choose every day to ask my Higher Power for the guidance to be the person I am supposed to be -- just for today.  I often stray from this goal, but I have the knowledge and practice of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous to guide me through my imperfections.

that this Friday night is the anniversary of my last full-fledged drunk.  My sobriety date won't be until 5 days later.
I'm stubborn.  LOL

One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

I'm glad I was not present at your last full fledged drunk. I'm sorry you had to be..... ;-)

I wish I could come to your birthday meeting. Maybe next year...

Glad that your stubbornness was supplanted by your willingness.
