Day 7, busy weekend ahead!

Itís been a few days since I posted, happy to say things have been great! I have been going to AA meetings and other meetings that help me remain focused on my sobriety. Learned so much about the selfishness of the alcoholic personality and been more aware of my thoughts, catching them before they have the opportunity to damage.

At one of the AA meetings this past week we read from the Big Book (wonder why itís called that) and one of the stories was an exact experience of what I went through as a child, Dťjŗ vu right there, it brought back painful memories. This would have caused me to drink immediately but to be able to talk about it with the group and also have some possible explanations of why my parents acted the way they did many years ago brought me immense peace.

Busy weekend ahead, I was able to stay sober last weekend but had a glass of champagne which compromised my sobriety so this weekend Iím staying away from parties, gatherings and the like and have lined up quite a bit of community service work, spring cleaning (though the weather hasnít gotten the memo), biking and catching up with friends.
