todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for sober days and sober nights. I was thinking about my previous life (when I drank to oblivion every night) when I had that absolute obsession to start drinking as early as I could get away with each day. Ya know, it just didn't matter what was going on in my life -- good stuff or bad stuff. It just didn't matter. That obsession was there all the time, until I gave in to it, which I did each day without giving it a second thought. Unless you're an alcoholic, you could not possibly appreciate the depth of these feelings. This is why I must stay spiritually connected to my Higher Power. Without that HP, it probably wouldn't be too long before I would be back sitting on a barstool.
So I do the things I do in order to stay spiritually fit. Right now, I'm writing these words as a reminder to myself.
Thanks for putting up with me.
I think I've discovered the secret of life - you just hang around until you get used to it.
