A simple guy making his way

Just for today I will not drink

For me early sobriety is like waking from a deep sleep.

I can pretend like the past was all just a bad dream.

Skillfully executed to make me think I was nothing... A loser... A drunk drugged out freak.

Orchestrated at the highest levels all to make me believe what was is.

A cliche of someone out of control and on the ride of his life. Never stopping long enough to see where I had arrived.

It was not a dream. I have assured myself. Today my dreams are about my future and not my past. They embody the hope that being sober gives me and I embrace it with joy.

There is a lot of good to come from this if I make it so. Ride my pink cloud off into the sunset.

For today... Just for today. I will not drink.

You cannot see your strengths, but you gain confidence in their existence as they enable you to act.
And the results of your actions you can see.

Today is all we will ever have. I plan on making the most of it
I've dealt with my ghosts and faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself

I just do it day by day. The one day at a time concept is so important. For those out there still struggling you can do it minute by minute, hour by hour if you have to.
