Who would have thought that accepting that I'm an alcoholic would have been able to make me feel like I've been given a totallly new lease of life?

It seems quite a common theme that accepting oneseelf as an alcoholic can be such a troublesome thing. But as long as I'm a 'recovering' alcoholic then it's all gravy!

In some ways I'm actually pleased that I am an alcoholic as it's enabled me to see the beauty in most things. I also feel so grateful too which is a great feeling.

I guess when getting out of bed was a real challenge then anything seems something to be grateful for!!

Grateful to be a recovering alcoholic!

peace and love xxx

In reading the difference in your posts from May of last year to the present, I think you've come a remarkably long way, Neo. Pretty nice progress, my friend.

Who would have thought that anyone would say they are grateful to be an alcoholic?

My sponsor asked me the other day if I would trade the way I am feeling now for all the things I wanted in my life and couldn't get when I was drinking.

My answer was immediately No.

You can't beat this feeling. I am grateful too.

Great post, Neo! I know how you are feeling, as I experience very similar things right now. Rebirth is the perfect way to describe it.
