Stick with us, OldTom. I've been here for a while now, and even while on the cruise without internet, I was thinking about you all. SR kept me floating in my new beautiful sober life. The folks here truly care and won't let you down. You will feel this safety net and KNOW that we are here 24/7. There is no judgment, you can be totally honest, and that safety makes all the difference. Congrats and welcome.

So, once again I'm three weeks sober. This morning I've sat here and pondered what alcohol did and does to me. Other than being drunk or hungover. It turns me into a spiteful, hate filled and, bitter person. A person I'm not. I've done shameful things. I can't believe the dark hole my thoughts dragged me down.

That's not me as a sober person. People who've known me when I'm sober say I'm say I'm one of the nicest and kindest persons they've ever met. So, why would I ever want to go back to drinking again? I don't!

I just needed to put this out there. Didn't know where else to post it. I apologize for my ramblings. Once again I hope everyone here has a good day. If it doesn't turn out to be a good day, then make it a sober one!
