Good morning brothers and sisters in sobriety!
Let's make this a day that we really
carry the vision of God's will into all of our activities.
Then we can LIVE life to the fullest and enjoy the daylights (and nightlights) out of it.
Hey PeaceJoy, just be yourself.
I saw a t-shirt: "Be yourself. Everyone else is taken."
You'll know what to do.
And no, you don't have to relapse!
My son, who has been in so many rehabs that I've lost count, says they teach him relapse is part of recovery. I think they do this so you don't beat yourself up & stop trying.
When I first read the big book and came to the part in More About Alcoholism about the man who drank again because he failed to enlarge his spiritual life, it shook me up. You mean I can't just sit around and look good now that I'm sober?
Nope, not if I want to insure immunity against drinking.
The cool thing about working & self-sacrificing myself for others is that it gives my sobriety a color and flavor that even Baskin Robbins doesn't have! And it takes me places no travel agent could dream of.
Here's to living the sober life!
