Getting Back on Track ... Maybe :)

I haven't been going to as many meetings as usual lately, and that's not working too well for me.

So I'm trying to get things back on track. I went to two meetings today. I also socialized and helped clean up. Sounds simple, but gosh, it goes against what every nerve in my body wants.

I'm afraid of people. Maybe it's because I'm afraid that I won't be accepted. Or that I'll freeze up like an idiot and have nothing to say. But it kind of helps to know that many of the people I fear probably feel the same way.

Today, I'm especially grateful for ...

  • being 130 days sober
  • being sober
  • AA
  • AA meetings
  • AA members
  • the Big Book
  • my family & boyfriend, which support me in recovery
  • my functioning car, that gets me to meetings
  • God, who makes sobriety possible

Try not to slow down on those meetings. Remember ~ willing to go to any and all lengths.
