I have 30 days today

Almost didn't make it. I was starting to feel I had life in the palm of my hand, and then yesterday I got some really horrible financial news. At the same time, my neighbors were partying outside and invited me over for beer. I really felt like I wanted to give up at that moment and just get numb. Instead, I called my sponsor, who was here within 15 minutes and "rallied the troops," so to speak. She got me reading and writing, and I felt better although the problem itself didn't go away.

Even though I have a really difficult road ahead of me, I thank God for my AA family. I know they won't let me fall and go back to being the person I was before, the one who didn't even have the luxury of enjoying an evening with her own 3 children like I had last night. Strange as it sounds, I know I'm blessed.

You are blessed Glenna :day6 great job on the month mark. I recently started going to AA & am coming up on a month next Friday. I look forward to hitting that mark as it will be my longest trip without alcohol since I was a teenager.

Keep it up, you & your kids deserve it.

All of the best
