Doing it anyway

Today is day 5. I had to not go to a bar every time I thought about it today. I look at people on tv or life drinking and I think - why not me? Why not? Cause I need to be free. I need to not drink every day. I need to commit to my physical and emotional health. Today I went to a meeting and asked the speaker to sponsor me. Tomorrow I'll call her. I also had an epiphany. Do what they suggest. It applies to me. Oh ****! I'm not special. That's huge. Anyway. Love u guys.

Nice post Press. I followed those suggestions too, even though mostly I didn't understand the whys and wherefores. By this point though. I had answered two critical questions: what are my options? An alcoholic death, and what have I got to lose? Nothing.

It worked. I never thought it would, but it did.
