The Long Road Getting Sober

The Long Road Getting Sober

Life at 11 months the count down to one year..
What has really change the way I think for one ..But who I am hasn't really
..I'm can still be a total ass with my anger.But I can control it ..So much
better now . And when ask the question.. Do I want to drink the answer will
always be yes.. But it all come down to who I want to be..The bad ass roger
or the good one ..You can say I have realize what it does to me ..Like two
personality doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde..And the thing is I know what I want
now and I love who I am becoming .. It really doesn't matter what people
think of me anymore ..I'm not here to make their lives better ..But to make
my life better and there after come the true me ..And if you were to ask for
my secret ..I have none ..To tell you the truth it is all me willpower
knowing what I really want out of life and who I want to be .. The problem
of everyday life is and will always be there you can't stop it from coming..
But you can make the best of what you have and who you are..
When it all comes down to it we are all the same just maybe some have more
money or more kids ,job sucks your husband an ******* or your wife etc etc..
When that problem happen .. Its all but two question to be ask should I or
shouldn't I .. It goes the same with having fun spending time with friends
and family .. Do or don't and these day's I don't want to drink and I don't
and i also wanted to add this part that my exwife wrote ..

Hi Roger, I'd be glad to. "Having Roger not drinking anymore has made a very positive change in many people's lives; especially his sons. They wanted a father who would be understanding, patient and non-judgemental. It seems to me that alcohol can turn the nicest people into mean, rash people. Before, I could not get along with him, and I had no patience for his attitude. Now, it's like I re-discovered one of my best friends and I am proud to call him the father of my children. I know it will always be a somewhat difficult road for him to stay on at times; but I know he will perservere and stay sober. If he doesn't, he stands to lose everything again. And I never want to see that happen. " How's that? Hope you havea great weekend. Talk to ya later. Margie
and say to you all .. that it does get better everyday ..
peace love and god bless you all happy sunday
