Last night I heard someone share of their gratefulness for having days that they never have a thought of a drink. They thought that this would never happen to them. I could relate to this very much.
After leaving the meeting I thought of another time that I am extremely grateful. Those are on the days that I do have a thought of a drink. I am so grateful for the tools that were so freely given to me to use in these times. You see, I have not had the experience yet that took completely away the compulsion to drink. I still have thoughts,however fleeting they may be.
I am not disheartened by this because I know it will come. I have prayer and the ability to talk to others when I get these feelings. I also know that I must never look ahead, there really is something to the One Day At A Time thing.
