On my sobriety birthdate -- I try to figure out how I can double up on doing what I did the year before -- that kept me sober.
If alcoholism is a progressive condition -- and I do believe that it is -- my alcoholism gets stronger each year -- and I'm normally unaware of it -- because I'm living in sobriety.
Cunning. Powerful. Baffling. Even when sober. If it wasn't -- would you be crossing the one year mark -- for the third time? Something to think about.
Perhaps, what's getting you through the first year, the cards, signatures, candles, cakes, chips, dips, the meetings, the work, whatever you're doing, etceteras... is not enough to get you through the second year.
