Day 64

If you would have asked me 64 days ago, if 64 days sober were even possible, I would have told you that it might be for some people, but for me, forget about it. Today I stand (or write) before you a humble and changed man. I know that the journey is not over, but I do feel that I have come along way, and I am very grateful for all of the things that I have rediscovered in life. The little things, and the big things.

I am very grateful that my wife has had the courage to stand by me throughout my recovery, and was able to somehow find a shred of belief in me to somehow know that this time would be different.

I also owe a great debt of gratitude to my psychiatrist who has helped guide me through the first crazy week of detox, the first weeks of insomnia, and finally by helping me come up with practical methods to help manage the cravings.

Finally, I am grateful to God for giving me a new chance to be the husband, father, and employee I should have always been, and for His helping hand which has been guiding me through the bouts of intense guilt, shame, and regret for all of those nights....

So, I am grateful for Day 64.
