One of my shames is all of the bottles I didn't recycle....every day I would hide two empty bottles in my rubbish bag so no one could see them. I still feel bad about it....if I add up the bottles I threw in the wrong bin.....hundreds? thousands?

And when the garbage collectors came I could hear my bottles breaking in the truck, and I always cringed.

It is seriously wonderful not to do that anymore.....I hadn't thought about it in a long time....makes me even more grateful to be sober.
