Celebrating 23 years!
I 'loved' alcohol and drugs. I did. I did. No, I was addicted. But I was considered a 'productive member' of society so who cared if I was bashed half of the time? Bashed and yet looking for the next dose of something. That's is until one Christmas I found myself calling 'round to see what, if anything, my friends had for me to use. That was the beginning of a downward spiral that stopped October 5, 1989.
This year on the fifth I will celebrate 23 years being 'clean and sober'. I earned my chair at the meetings I chose to attend. It is one of the greatest moments for me... more important that my 'navel' birthday! No regrets.
My wish is that everyone has a chance to challenge and change things that hold them back. The very best to us all.
