Keeping On

My posts may seem repetitive but I come up with new ideas during this strange sober time and they may be hard to convey
I read posts and find so many things that mirror my own situation
Hereís one: Iíve already done my time of realizing why Iíve drank for most of my life. Iím getting my personal and financial life in order and I just canít believe that Iíve wasted so much time being drunk or waiting until I could get drunk again. With calmness comes frustration
My mind is still wrapping itself around the facts of reality
By stopping the boozing I have a chance at a better life
I couldnít even think straight about anything for such a long time
Itís like an awakening now

Maybe the drinking time was the strange time and you are simply feeling what life is like sober. Its funny how just simple, normal things are so miraculous to me. Waking up without a hangover....or actually without the terror of knowing that I must drink or I will start to withdraw..and all the awful crap that comes with that. Just normal, SR, email, bills, cleaning, exercise, walk the dog. WOW. Normal.

You're doing great.

We're waking up.
Finding ourselves again
Restoration is back to what we really are
Decent people
We need each other
In my experience this addiction dilutes in good company loses its grip.
Like you said my friend
You read others posts and you see yourself
So do i.
That's recovery

Keep on keeping on!
