I am back to the blogging world. I took a break because frankly I wasn't working a strong program. I thought that I could do this without this aspect of my program. What happened? I became grumpy all the time, restless, and irritable. Don't even talk to me about discontent. It seems that when we get away from the drink, life inevitably gets in the way. It could be a trip, someone saying something we didn't like, or just plain life...it can take us from our program if we are not careful. I am powerless over those feelings. I am powerless over how being a dry drunk makes me feel. I hope that I can learn from that and work a harder and harder program everyday.

Today I am grateful for:
  • The program I know I need, and the work I have done to keep me here.
  • My wife and her program.
  • Not having to walk this road alone.
  • Completing my first 3 steps and the chance to get real with another alcoholic on Saturday about them.
  • My mind clearing from the fog of an emotional hangover.
  • That I trudge the road with so many others.
  • That God does when I seek him.
