I'm sober, life's awesome, I am blessed, I have nothing to gripe about. Here's my gripe.

Bottom line point of my post - Sobriety doesn't mean you're going to have an end to problems, stresses, worries, troubles, frustrations, sadness, issues...... it's not a cure-all for bringing a state of utter bliss until we pass peacefully on into the next life.

But it's a much better place to live, and problems in sobriety are much easier to manage, accept and still live life with gratitude and joy.
YEP !! Being sober is key.

We all are human and IMO aren't to be on cloud 9 all the time. We would never be hungry for more. What is the meaning of life and why and I here besides feed the kids every nickel and dime we make.. We each have a purpose and IMO that changes within our own seasons of life. I have the wife, 4 kids, house, cars, job etc. and hopefully are considered a productive member of society. For me I'm a child of God and my mission is head of the family to spread that word in the ways that God designed me for.
On this earth I don't expect to be on the cloud 9 all the time. It's promised to me later.
