One drink away, and its all gone.....

I wrote this today in the one year and under club... And just thought it might be a good little read for the newcomers..

I had a great morning of reading and meditation..I was just doing a little reflecting and taking inventory of my last 201 one days of uninterrupted sobriety.. And I won't bore you with the long drunk-a-log, but sum up the last year..

By the end, the last couple years of my drinking career, I was a very low bottom drunk.. I had lost all control of myself.. I was unemployable, couldn't control my bowels, a shaking mess, ect......

And really only lived to drink, did go anywhere but the store and bar..

In the last 201 days of working my AA program.. I have ....

Had a spiritual experience
Found a Higher Power
Attended a 12 step retreat on Lake Erie in January (awesome) weekend...
Took a trip to Milwaukee for a week of their AA
Got a job and still have it, while I found a better one
Stayed a weekend at the Ritz Carlton and took a friend down to Dr. Bob's House and Grave.
Got to see a doctor and have a check-up and get healthy]
Went to the dentist several times which I had not done either doctors for 20 years
A handful of road trips to southern ohio for AA
Continue to go down to the detox facility to be there for the new guy


Just to name a few... Truly a miracle..!!!!!!!!!! And all of it can be washed away in one simple drink... For its the first drink that gets me drunk , not the 12th...

I wrote this to just show what this road of recovery can do, since we have a few people with 20-40 days.. Stay the course, its one day at a time..
