A Year's Sobriety

Postby Worm » Tue Aug 18, 2009 11:49 pm

Computer crapped out so I havent been around in a while. Trying to get caught back up and see the new names and the old are still hanging around. I've missed reading this forum. I've always got alot from it.

Anyway, August 5th was my 1 year birthday. I am still amazed at the fact that I went a year without alcohol. I know it only happened with God's wonderful grace and the people in this fellowship. My brain has cleared somewhat, I see and remember things now I certainly didnt a year ago. Ive had some curveballs thrown my way this year,worked through them and did not pick up that drink to ease the pain or indulge the self pity as I used to.
Well this Saturday I'm celebrating my birthday at my home group with 6 others. We are having a fish fry. Sobriety ranges from my 1 year up to 42 years. Now thats amazing! The thing is, I've been more nervous since the 5th than I have all year. I still have that feeling that I don't want to let the people down that have helped me so much.

I just felt like sharing this tonight. BTW, youre all invited Saturday night if youre anywhere near south Georgia. Eat at 6, speaker at 7.

Love all,
