DAY 22 - Lying to a Doctor

Tags damage , doctor , hope , liver , pain

I had been experiencing liver pain the past couple years. It's been a significant factor in my decision to quit for life. I recently wrote a post about how I am trying to repair my liver. I have mild, acute pain on my right side, under my rib cage, after taking supplements and vitamins or eating. It's not debilitating, I just know it's there. I have not been to the doctor yet to get checked out. The reason is because I am embarrassed. I told my doctor last year on my annual check up that...

This morning I woke up to my 6:00 am alarm with no problem! Wow!
I woke up with a positive attitude and a smile on my face. I haven't felt this great in a very long time. I will not take this feeling for granted and will use this power to give my life a boost. So I set quite a few goals for the day. Mainly school, I'm working on the 4th Real Estate education course, 2 more courses to go before I get my license, and it's been long and grueling! Today I see the light at the...

Day 18 - Hope!

It's getting better. I am here to tell you it does get better. I'm not ever going to be healed from alcoholism, and now I know that sobriety is the only way to live for an alcoholic. I had quit so many times in the past, and convinced myself that I'm not as bad as other alcoholics (look I have wine in a fancy glass you see) but the truth was 1) I was making excuses to drink again, 2) I could easily get worse than what I was, and 3) there is no spectrum with alcoholism, it's yes or no. It's...

Twenty four hours sober!

Posted 04-07-2015 at 10:45 AM by FLGuy34

I feel good! I'm drinking tea, and I'm going through all the disorganized boxes that I was too drunk to sort out.

It is amazing how much time I can get done when I'm not drinking a six-pack (or two) a day.

The Cracked Pot

Posted 09-20-2013 at 04:24 PM by ProgressNotPerfection
Updated 04-25-2014 at 10:49 AM by ProgressNotPerfection

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to his house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of...
