My best day sober is always the day that I'm still sober -- especially then the day is "today!".
I no longer try to compare if one day was better than another considering my circumstances. I've seen days that I considered my worst day sober that actually turned out to be one of my best days -- and I've had some best days, that after I reflected on it -- turned out to be my worst day.
When I go to bed at night -- I tell myself that if my eyes open in the morning -- I'm going to do all that I can to make it one of my best days ever. When I wake up, I tell myself that I'm going to do all that I can to make it one of my best days ever. Then, I try to do a little better today than I did yesterday.
I do love to hear the sharing, like above, where someone still has their kids or their spouse, or their family -- after they get sober. And, how their changed reactions and responses were. It's GOOD for me to hear those sharings -- because it gives me something to hope for and to grow towards. Sometimes, I can actually say "I understand!" because I relate and have been blessed to have a similar experience.
Ditto on thanks for all your sharing above! I appreciate you!
