todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for those who return to sobriety and recovery after a relapse. Over the weekend, someone returned who had a number of years, certainly double-digits. I'm not sure how long they had been drinking again, but I think it was only a few weeks. Personally, I've always felt that I probably would not make it back if I relapse. Either my behavior would lead me to an early death or my pride/ego would prevent me from coming back. So, each time I see someone return it is recorded somewhere in my brain that it is OK to return, if I choose to drink again. I'll just have to reconnect with my Higher Power.
to be reminded that my willpower will not get me sober or keep me sober. I have plenty of personal history of this.
The cyclone derives its powers from a calm center. So does a person.
