It’s One Day at a Time
How much time do you have? Everyone wants to know! I have today! That’s what really matters, and that each day, I ask my Higher Power once again for my daily reprieve from alcohol. How do we stay sober? One day at a time, because that’s what I can manage. In the beginning I couldn’t imagine life without alcohol. I wondered how miserable I would become. I thought my fun was over, my dealing with life was over. That I would be a miserable, cranky dry drunk. Then I decided to follow a program, and it taught me how to live without alcohol and enjoy life. Today I notice the leaves changing color, and laugh with friends. I spend time with family and appreciate each moment because I know that if I were still drinking I may not be here. Life would not be this good, and for that I am extremely grateful.
