For the past two days,

and approaching a month of sobriety, my complacency grew much more than Iíd realized. My last post only hinted at this, really, yet it wasnít until this morn that I came to said realization.
I was planning ways to get drinks while my family would remain unknowing. Iíve done this for years and when Iím sober long enough, I feel that Iíll be able to finally drink normally.
This time, however, I said no. To myself- to this insane idea.
And when I woke up, the idea of wanting to drink was gone.
Yep, this time is decidedly different from all the times when I really didnít intend to quit for good.

Secrets and lies are a real hindrance to a sober life. It isn't just drinking or not drinking that makes me successful, it's having integrity in the small things and in my relationships.

We can lie to other people should we choose to - but we should never lie to ourselves.

Keep true to yourself and your intention Rodney.

Good job

Sometimes this thing is kinda tough, but if we are patient the thoughts or urges will pass.

I had done this for so long my brain would default to this type of scheming when left unchaperoned. I had to force it to think about other things for quite a while.

Now I don't.

Keep doing what you're doing and some day you won't.
