Coming up on 90 Days...


Here I am... coming up on 90 days sober. This is the longest I have made it in my year and a half battle to get and stay sober. It is a wonderful feeling to me! For me I have been someone that has been in and out of the AA rooms for over a year... and I would get several weeks maybe even a month together and then I would relapse.. rinse, wash, repeat... over and over and over again.

But, something happened this last time. I stuck it out... everytime I wanted to drink, I called someone, I talked to my sponser, I went outside and prayed, I did something that got me out of whatever I was feeling at that moment that made me want to drink. And, I started working a true and good program with someone who knew what she was talking about. And, guess what... it truly is working.

I have gone back over and read my old journal here... and I am SO grateful that I am no longer that girl .. I am becoming the woman I want to be.

Fantastic!

And, that's the way to do it. There are no tricks or short-cuts, other than just getting through it.

Be very proud of yourself.
