48 days today since I put down the booze. My car is now registered licenesed and insured. I am completely legal now. It feels weird, I found my self thinking "Is this happening?" The spritual growth that comes with accepting life on lifes terms for me is about "just taking in everything" and resting in the Lord.

It has been a good day.

59 days..."It's all about dreams" and not being afraid to go after them---what I hold dear to my heart. "It's all about making the best out of everything".

Lots of love and hope from me...I got both from my awesome HP!!

:ghug: :day6



Thomas Paine:
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

William Allen White:
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

Two of you with 60 days today! "Congradulations" Angel and SteppinUp "like children to the playground, you make me smile".

Still 10 days behind both of you one day at time and I'm loving this day God made for me.

61 days. The longest I have ever been sober. That I am happy about.

I feel like everytime I come here its when I'm really tired and kind of in a blah mood. It's been a long couple weeks, with work, and trying to GET to work (no license due to DUI) and I'm trying not to get stressed, but right now I'm just frustrated. I want to go to sleep and wake up in 7 months when I have my licenses back so I don't have to worry about how I'm getting work tomorrow anymore. This should probably do in the "Whiners Anonymous" thread.

Dryspell dont even think about long term sobreity, think about hour to hour, then slowly work your way up to thinking about staying sober one day at a time,go to meetings lots of meetings.

Checking Back In

Hey all Marchers,
Been away from posting for almost 2 weeks now, just been real busy. My daughter had prom last weekend and graduated high school today. I'm doing okay, 75 days sober here. Glad to see a lot of familiar faces (Angelina, Adore, Eidectic, Deano) and some new ones too. Hope everyone has a great week.
Cya, Lynx

63 days.."In letting go" of trying to do things my way, "I am so proud of what I've done" by humbly allowing my HP to take over and guide me toward better things--a better life...which is definitely more fulfilling and meaningful that what it was before.

"I shed my coat with caution" of who I used to be...."the secret I kept here inside" myself for so long---now "I'm ready for the world to see" who I really am, and not be afraid.

64 days--and going strong.

Great post Angel. Isn't that what it's all about for us?

54 days today for me. Life remains good with all the ups and downs. I found out today when I was supposed to take my driving test to get my permanent DL that I have to get one of those breathalyzer deals on my car that I have to blow in each time before I can start it or whatever before they will give me my permanent DL. Of course my first reaction is to find a loophole. I have a temp license that is good till November so screw them......But the sponsor said just don't get pulled over without one installed in your car, and a friend who was there said at the very least they will give my car a place to stay for the night.....blah

So then my broken brain trys to tell me "I might crumble, I might take a fall again". Two AA meetings later and I am feeling great. Guess I'll check into getting my breathalyzer lock. At least this way I don't have to worry about relapsing and jumping into the car to run to the liquor store and ending up in the State prison for several years.....

They made these stupid things for people like me.

Life is good today. Happy to be sober and know God in my life.

Day 65..."I take off the mask that surrounds me"....and allow myself to become vulnerable before you...."Look me in the face" and tell me "What do you see?" I hope you like it, but if not, that is ok. I accept who I am today.

Day 66..."There's some kind of light at the end" of this journey, but it is walking through darkness (painful times) that seems to strengthen me the most.
