Well..end of day two- almost

I knew things could get rough today- so I decided to fight WDs with a creative plan...took my Harley out for a nice ride when the weather warmed up, then rode it to my first AA meeting in months. It was great- a bit emotional, I saw one of my old best buds in there that I hadn't seen in a long time and sat beside him. That was awesome, I guess he got tired of the rock star lifestyle as well- because we certainly brought the house down MANY times years back. We hugged and well- maybe a small 'tear-up'- it was cool.

I am going to another meeting in about an hour. 2 today! I still don't understand how I just have anxiety, the last 'go-round' I was sweating and shaking and basically dead for 2 days. No complaints. One day at a time.
Hope everyone is doing great - looking forward to tomorrow- I mean day 3!!!!
Love and Peace to All

I'm closing out my day 3. Haven't been to a real meeting yet. I wish I had a bike ... I need to get one. About 1000 times a day I just want to take off an be somewhere else. I keep thinking about the desert. Hang in there man - I think that whole "one day at a time" thing is right on and the only way to get it done.

I agree with the 'one day at a time' thing being crucial. When I am starting to struggle a little I have to go back to basics and just pledge to myself that "just for today I will not drink"


peace and Love Dubs. Keep The Faith.
