Another Year Making #4

Hen I first got sober this site was amazingly important to me. I come back here and read my journal from when I was drinking and attempting to get sober. Damn my life was rough and it took losing everything and almost my own life in order to get IT. It being that there was a HP that would and could remove my destructive drinking behavior if I worked for it.

I am about to turn 4 years on Wednesday with the grace of my HP.

Don't give up y'all you can rebuild and have a life beyond your greatest imagination.

Hold close to your sense of something or that can help outside and inside yourself. Sobriety is there if you want it.

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.
