I never had time for baths before, I've had more baths in the last 2 weeks than I've had for the previous 6 months

(don't worry I'm not minging and don't wash- just used to prefer a shower lol.)

When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation- some fact of my life- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept my life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes
It's amazing to me that I have read these words every day this day since 2012 and how much more I understand or learn each time I read them. Growth. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Was busy at work and a couple of nurses were being rude and unhelpful to me when I asked them about a patient of mine. Ended up nearly crying in front of the bloody patient how embarrassing Normally that wouldn't bother me at all, well maybe just a little bit, but then I would have thought they were a couple of arseholes (they are) and just got on with it! Need to man up soon

see you all tomorrow for my day 16

You're doing Good Mcflurry! Even with lifes ups and downs living through them sober is easier than living through them drunk. Check!

Congrats on 2 weeks and counting!!
