Sober since April 6, 2006

That's
days

Obsession is not a perfume!

It's the constant, sanity-stealing impulse to do something -- even if you know it's bad for you.

It might hide, but it never goes away.

It stalks you. And at your weakest moment, it strikes.

What little sanity you had is gone.

You lose the "will" to fight it.

And it defeats you ... again.


Today, I'm thankful for ...

  • not giving in
  • being 74 days sober
  • long walks in the forest
  • AA buddies
  • loving family and boyfriend
  • precious puppy
  • God, who helped me to stay sober today
