Day 8, still having strange thoughts...

Hello everyone,

This is the first time I've ever been on day 8...

I'm still a little bit in lala-land, but the thoughts are slightly different now. I can't get this thought out of my head that I'm like an astronaut who has just broken free from a deep, black hole called Drunkenness, and is heading towards a beautiful, shining planet called Sobriety. But there are all these asteroids coming at me. The asteroids are negative thoughts and emotions which make me want to press the self-destruct button and have a drink.

The "12 steps" are the forcefield around my spaceship, making the asteroids bounce off without doing any damage. My little legs are pumping up and down as fast as they can, trying to work the 12 steps to generate more power to the forcefield. I just hope my forcefield holds out. Please, please let my forcefield hold out...


Kind thoughts to all of you out there...

Dear Paddington - welcome to unknown territory. You are truly a great explorer!! Just think how fantastic it is to be on Day 8 - a new thing for you to discover. And every day from now on will be new. Keep on avoiding those pesky ateroids and you will get nearer and nearer to your destination. Have a good day.

Great Escape

Yes, daily vigilance is essential. I always need to work on the negative thoughts, though it's much easier now than it used to be.

Keep in mind, your addict mind is trying to bring you down. Recognize it for what it is and dismiss it.
