It was big for me

In the big picture they may seem like little steps but they were big for me. I made dinner for my parents last night. I can't even begin to rememer when the last time was that I did that. It was especially big for me because I hate cooking. I also laced up and went for a two-mile walk today after work; again, I know I haven't done that in a really long time. This, too, was especially big as my coordination hasn't been the same since my last drinking episode gave me a brain injury. I spent a lot of time looking at the ground and I didn't break any speed records but mission accomplished. I was so self-conscious of how I looked; I never care about that stuff. It was a strange feeling. Sobriety is good.

Very big steps Drinking robs us of life's simple pleasures......fortunately sobriety restores them.

Good for you. Walking is the best, and don't worry if you think you're going a bit slow. It's so great that you're out there doing it. It sounds like you're doing well.
