Old Cherokee Adage


An old Cherokee told his grandson: "My son, there's a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It's anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is Good. It's joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth." The boy thought about it and asked: "Grandfather, which wolf wins?". The old man quietly replied: "The one you feed."

This quote kept me from picking up a drink tonight. It really helped me as I'm contemplating my sobriety and trying to move forward with a sober life. I hope it helps some you all too. Let's feed the right wolf tonight.

That has been working for over 13 months now for me! It's a brighter world without intoxication!
(funny, "intoxication" has the word "toxic" in it!)

Thanks for sharing that!!
