Hello SRC, Glad to be clean and sober on this Monday morning, grateful that I could show up for work today.Even though I having been battling a cold all weekend. Could be worse I could have a hang over. It has been a tough weekend. I have had about 4 friends relapse over the weekend and this makes me so sad. I know that today I can only stay sober for myself and I cant make anybody else stay clean but it breaks my heart to see this going on all around me.

If you have built castles in the air,your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

It is very hard to watch others relapse around you. I also saw someone go back out this past week and feel a bit used as well because she was crying on my shoulder before I knew that she had started drinking again. Now our long conversations seem tainted. And I feel somewhat betrayed. Although I do have compassion for her.

You are still sober. I hope you hold that to you today as you pray for your friends and hope they make it back to sobriety quickly.

Hopefully, your friends will find their way.

Enjoy your day.
