Things I care about today..
...that I neglected in active addiction.
That's all we've done so far. Anyone else have something to add?
I have been sober from alcohol for almost 2 years but spent the past few months in a haze of pain, oxycodone and surgery. Finally clean, relatively pain free and enjoying being back to clean and sober life. Not clock watching for my next pill.

Good stuff, SSIL. I can remember never wanting to go anywhere if there wasn't alcohol and a ladie's room readily available. What a way to live.

I care now about geuinely relaxing as opposed to obsessing about things.
I care now that i may help some others grow towards sobriety that they want and in turn re-enforced my own.
I care that i've given the best of myself to life today, given whats possible.
Ups and downs still happen, it's how we deal with them that counts. gave up 3rd sept 2011.
I post because i have some experience , not because i have any answers for you .

My kids. Not that I really neglected them before, but I have put myself before them somewhat. So I am spending time with them and acting like a kid. Breakfast for dinner in our PJ's and watching a movie of their choosing. Mmmmm...pancakes and bacon!

I neglected my poor dogs while I was drinking. Now they get the loving thorough care they need and deserve. Sobriety rocks!!
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.
