Looking forward to Tuesday march 3rd. That'll be 200 days sober for me. I feel great. But I'm still on guard and weary. There is no room for overconfidence, arrogance or frivolousness. I drank like a fish for fifteen years. So 200 days=a hell of a lot farther to go. I've taken one step on a million mile journey.

Don't crave alcohol. But lately i have been craving weed. Strong cravings. Really felt like smoking a spliff. Don't know what it is. Weeds all over american t.v nowadays. Legalized here legalized there..internet articles proclaiming the innocuous nature of weed. But I won't have it. Smoked everyday for fifteen years..I'm through. Must stay focused. Sobriety. Complete.

My defense of my sobriety is like Stalin's command to the people of Stalingrad right before the siege; "not one step back"

Last night. Jogging at park. Past the softball field. Saw a crowd of dudes. Presumably part of a softball league. Finished playing a few games. They had the truck beds down. A barbecue pit smokin. A few ice chests out. They were huddled around. Pounding beers. And laughing and shouting at each other the way dudes do when they drink. That once was me I thought as I jogged by and kept on without looking back. Was. Good riddance. Tomorrow 200 days sober.

Being sober I find I don't worry about my internal organs. When I was an alcoholic I constantly worried about my liver, kidneys, and pancreas. It sounds weird. Worrying about internal organs. But did. Now I don't.

A cold beer on a hot day..a stiff whiskey on a cold night..a bottle of wine at the beach in the evening...do I miss them? No. Because I can't/won't romanticize alcohol. When it comes to my drinking I must look back with a cold clinical eye. Alcohol cost me family, friendships, time and money..alcohol was murdering me.
