I'm Lucky


Lucky to be employed. Lucky to even be alive. Lucky to have complete strangers that care about me (this forum).

Alcoholism is a beast - and a lot of people don't realize just how strong its pull is.

I just looked at a quote this morning- how the subtraction of alcohol gives us the additions of happiness, love, and self-respect. i also love the "I get to" not "I can't" vibe you are giving off, TWTOM.

Great stuff! It's so easy to forget how lucky we are to have another chance at life, after the hell we went through.

Great thread!!!!!! It's so easy to just focus on the negative stuff, and spend little time appreciating what we have. John

And, on the upside, isn't it wonderful to be here among friends here who understand.
