finally making it again

I'm 34 days out after a 4 month long roller coaster ride. It feels so good to be 100% clean and sober again. I asked for help. And that is what I really needed. I just could not do it on my own. I went into a 21 day program after failing over and over again. I knew I had to break the cycle. I'm going to meetings again. Found a great sponsor. And am now working on the forth step.

Now I'm looking for a job. But in the mean time I'm getting out, and being social, and doing lots of walking. I feel pretty darn good.

And grateful most of all.

Thank you both. Yes, hope is so important. Being an obsessive and compulsive person...I was so stuck. Going into a 21 day rehab program gave me the kick in the ass I needed for sure. I was never so happy as I was when I walked into those doors. It's not easy, and I was scared. But I was so relieved most of all.

I had fallen down and hurt myself pretty bad. I don't know where, when or how I fell. But I messed up my neck and arm really bad. I still have a hard lump on my arm. It is going away now. I have to put a hot wash cloth on it. But it scared me so much. I'm just glad I got myself home after that. But I knew I was in serious trouble.

Thank you all so much for your love and support. It's just what this silly ol' dysfunctional heart needed...and needs.

As soon as I went into the program my Mom and kids (who had not been talking to me) called me on Mother's Day. Those three phone calls were the best present I could have ever asked for. And it was only my second day in that program.

The miracles of sobriety.

i'm so glad you went to treatment
and IMO more importantly
you are back to a program.

I consider Step work was the key
for me to find solid successful recovery.

Blessings to you and your family
