Some of us are struggling to stay sober right now and I find this thought helpful. What gets an alcoholic drunk is that first drink.

When I feel the urge to drink I think about that first drink and how wonderful it would taste and how tingly it would make me feel. Then I think about the second drink, the third and eventually the bottom of the bottle. You see, it’s not the quantity of alcohol that gets me drunk, it’s the first drink that gets me drunk, because I am an alcoholic.

One drink leads to the bottom of a bottle. Plain and simple. However, the thought of never drinking again can be very overwhelming. So instead of thinking about being sober the rest of our lives, we need to focus on being sober right now, this moment, this day. Not forever. If we can avoid that first drink, just for today, we will be successful in our sobriety

The mindset of a drug addict

Six months of raw sobriety without any mood or mind altering drugs whatsoever. Really emotional today but so grateful for the lessons I’ve learned so far and for the possibility of a life better than the one I was living before I got into AA. Time, God and AA is the answer to all my questions and prayers.

I don’t know where I’m going, but at least I am no longer standing still.

Four Years

happyhealthycook:

Four years ago last night, I was drunk for the very last time.

In the last four years, everything has changed. I quit smoking. I lost a ton of weight. I started running and hiking again. I started cooking every single day and nourishing myself properly. I got physically healthy in every way.
