but its still a good thing and a good day to be sober. I need to let go of the self-centered negativity of thoughts like "You've been here before...so what?" and just accept the help and grace of both God and others in recovery. I know for sure my wife and 4 kids are happier and safer...I know my community and employer are too. All the down playing and comparing out and low self-esteem and all that anxiety stuff is just an elaborate relapse plan..a depressing road back to the pain and s***...for everyone in my life, not just me. So today I am trying to sit quietly and gratefully....humble in the knowledge that many people- people who've gone as far down as I have...don't get YET another 30 days.....Thanks...Rob

You sound so much better than when I last read your posts. You sound like your doing really well. Keep it up.
Dont just count your days...Make your days count!

It may not get easier, But it will get better.

30 days and what seems like 1,000 looooooong nights. Congrats Rob, I'm glad you continue to share your ES&H with our members.

Congrats!! Humbly on day 78 this time myself... Some times the negativity really sucks, what really helps me is reading posts like yours and recalibrating my own thoughts and perceptions. It's getting better and will continue to. What I think right now affects my future and accordingly my opportunities.
He who neglects what is done for what ought to be done, sooner effects his ruin than his preservation.
