Day 67


Good morning to all my fellow drunks and addicts. I'm a recovering addict and alcoholic. Just over two months sober and today is a good day. I've been out of treatment since August 8. Treatment was such an amazing experience for me. I came back to life. I accept what I've done and who I am. I am worth it.

Coming out of treatment was scary. I was afraid I would lose the freedom I found in recovery. There are good days and bad, but I've come a long way in these two short months. I just found a sponsor this past weekend at a CA campout. I've made some big steps in my relationship with the God of my understanding.

I never thought I could get here. I still have doubts and fears, but I have support if I ask for it.

Finding a strong community here is just one more tool that I can use in my recovery. Thanks for being here.

Thanks Candi. Thanks NoFireWater.

Getting a dose of reality took me down off the pink cloud, but life in recovery is so much better.

Two months is great! We're so happy to have you here.

You have a positive attitude and sound like you're enjoying being free. I never thought I could get here, either - but I'm loving having my life back.
