TOPIC: Changes In Recovery. We All Go Thru Them.
Hi Im Sharon and Im an Alcoholic.
By the Grace of my HP and people
like you here in SR I havent found
it necessary to pick up a drink of
alcohol since 8-11-90.
For that and you I am truely grateful.
Changes in recovery. We all go thru them.
I suppose if we didnt have changes
then we wouldnt grow and mature.
For me, Ive gone thru many changes.
Forever shedding another peel of
an onion as it falling off.
Child abuse changed me from a shy
child to one full of fear. Fears and
insecurities handicapped into my
latter teenage yrs when i began
That substance called alcohol gave me
courage and strength to face obstacles
in my life i wouldnt normally face with
A 25 yr marriage with half drinking
the rest sober. Drinking to cope
with a family. Drinking to fill a lonely
void. Drinking to belong.
In Feb. 1990 an accident didnt stop my
addiction nor stop me from trying to
end my miserable life.
Aug. 90 family intervention and a 28
day stay in rehab was another change
in my life. Them doing for me what i
couldnt do for myself.
Many many meetings thereafter. A
geographical move to Tx. for 10 yrs.
A failing marriage as i continued trudging
along the road of recovery, sharing
my experience strenghts and hopes
here and there for anyone to listen.
2006 I moved back to my hometown
leaving my little family in Tx. Kids that
were grown and in college and a husband
not wanting to relocate.
All the prayers and tears and forever
being answered and always being
guided by a Force greater than I
is still molding me and changing me
into an fine tuned instrument.
For the last few yrs. more changes
as my HP placed a person in my
life to share it with. I havent asked
for anything and yet I was blessed
with an awesome gift.......all this
due to turning my will and life
over once again and following
the principles of our wonderful
useful program. To finally recieve
the gift of HONESTY.
Once i achieved that then
FREEDOM as mentioned in
the promised was given to me.
This was another unbelivable
remarkable change in my most
Now for today.....i was let go
from my little job, due to
some unquestionable issues
This door im saying is closed and
will wait for a new one to open.
What change is about to happen
i wonder. Is it time for me to grow
some more? What does my HP
have in mind for me?
Only time will tell.
Till then, im in good hands.
So many changes and still more
Share ur changes with us if ud
Thanks for letting me share.
