Finding things to be grateful for


I am new to this site but I have a few things to be grateful for...

Mainly I am grateful for the friend who showed me the way, who was there during my darkest times and who is still there despite dealing with her own problems and hardships.

I am grateful for my family even though they don't understand what I am doing and still believe that this is just a phase I am going through and that I will still have a drink at Christmas and have already catered for me.

And finally I am grateful to find people that I can say all this to, who do not know me but understand and don't judge.


Thank you to one and all

I found that it got easier to find things to be grateful for. Even the small stuff.

Seems like with a little practice it does get easier.

It’s a useful tool in the battle for sobriety, so why not?

At least that’s the way I see it, especially in those moments it seems like nothing is “going right”.
