Today, I celebrate 18 months. I feel nothing shy of total and complete gratitude, because of the recent events in my life, I have come to realize that I almost didn't make it.
The life lessons these past few weeks have taught me have shown me that, alcohol never was my problem. It isn't my problem today, and if I keep my head in the book it never will be. I know that today beyond any shadow of a doubt. My problem is the disease of Alcoholism. And there is no longer any doubt that it is a crippling and deadly disease. I also understand today what it truly means to say that I am willing to go to any length to stay sober and to recover by the grace of my Higher power provided I stick to the program.
If you still have any doubt about the disease, I implore you to study, not read, study the Doctors Opinion and Bills Story. It's all there and it was all there all along, I just didn't have my eyes open. Today I do.
I heard in a meeting tonight that a smart man learns from his mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. I say this for two reasons, 1) because it's true, and 2) to remind myself and you that when you at a meeting be there, mind body, and spirit. Be where ever your feet are planted at that moment in time. :shock: :shock: :shock: :D :D :D
