Very happy for you grampa - I'm so glad you found us too. Great job on reaching 2 wks. It'll continue getting better.
You are so much more than the worst thing you've ever done. Fr. Greg Boyle

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.

What a nice post Grampa
In the attitude of silence the soul finds a path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness, our life is a long and arduous quest after truth

Hi Grandpa - glad you were able to put her to bed and I'm sure you both enjoyed it more sober.

Your doing it Grampa ! Congradulations.

I'am with you at about 2 weeks also. I'am starting to see "peeks" through the gray curtain of depression now and then. How about you ?

Sobriety is getting by day !...hope your's is too !

Great stuff, grampa

Stop seeking, and you will see.
Stop running away, and you will be found.

Great post.

Sometimes it's hard, but I'm glad that you're finding gratitude in your day.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
