Sobriety is Wonderful

The many gifts sobriety has given me. I never planned on getting sober, however, scared of withdrawal and out of cash I decided to go to rehab. I couldn't afford both my addictions financially. Almost 26 months later here I am, sober. I couldn't help but feel so grateful to have made it out of my addiction alive. I understand that my hard work on my recovery must continue for my life time and that is just fine with me. The life that I live today is wonderful. It's important to look at the things we do have, not the things that we don't. I just thought of SR. These forums and meetings give me support because I know I don't have to go through this alone. People have said to me "Wow, If you can do it anyone can". Yes they can! It all began with a realization that when it came to alcohol, I was powerless! I could not drink like a normal person and if I did I was going to lose. Here I am today, sober? Lol. What has happened to me? :-)

Awesome job on 25+ months
Every soul is like a raindrop that falls from the sky into one vast ocean of consciousness. Most raindrops hit the surface and make a small ripple that fades away ... but some ripples become waves.
