Knowing I have a problem is the first step to solving it. Truth is I can’t handle my alcohol or other drugs. Life is better without them. I am better without them. For most of my life I feared the unknown, I was afraid of who I’d become without alcohol, I was afraid to face the truth, I was afraid of being honest with myself, I was afraid to look in the mirror.
Honesty was the cure for me, being honest with myself, honest with what I wanted, honest with where I was in life, honest with where I wanted to go.
Integrity & strength of character helped me get there. Commitment, dedication, and my higher power gave me the courage to see it through.
Gratitude of the day: Today I’m thankful for my higher power, helping me see my illness for what it is. Helping me see that honesty is my best friend.
Action of the day: Today I’ll take 30 minutes to thrive, to think about what my true condition was, that led me to consume alcohol and other drugs. I’ll also focus on the progress I have today.
