Sober since April 6, 2006

That's

Wednesday, October 04, 2006

and so it goes

Today, I'm grateful for ...

  • being 181 days sober
  • a really good book that has helped me to make sense of the past month's illogical happenings
  • getting to listen in on two AA meetings today
  • discovering the awesome guitar playing of John Petrucci (see the two previous posts)
  • finding a music player plugin for my blog, and learning how to embed it
  • getting a job offer today. I'm not sure that I want it, but I will start Monday morning anyway
  • my supportive family, which gave me a standing ovation for getting a job
  • taking my dog for a nice walk in the cool air of the beautiful evening
  • God, who doesn't shield me from life's pain. I choose to believe that He does this is so that I will learn how to find new sources of joy that I have not recognized yet.

GREAT SITE! CONGRATULATIONS!!

I tried to get off the sauce 3 times in 1966, and didn't succeed until Oct. 1967. Been OFF ever since and don't miss it! When I go to weddings, I pour water in the glass to toast the happy couple!
