"The tremendous danger is that this belief - that genuine happiness comes only from pleasant feelings - becomes a strong motivation to stay closed to anything unpleasant. But by staying closed to all unpleasantness, we also stay closed to our own wellspring of compassion." -- Joseph Goldstein

Thinking of all of you!

8 weeks sober today; 71 years old today, some sayings come to mind......."We get too soon old and too late smart"; "If I knew I was going to last this long I would have taken better care of myself"

Grateful for all of you, this forum and the Smart recovery forum. Each and everyone has a story to tell, so much easier and better hearing and telling it without the use of mind altering substances.

Might be offline for a few days, headed to NH. Stay well.
