My Sobriety 

January 9, 2016 by Kayce L.

Today, I am 6 years sober. 2191 days. And my gratitude is stronger than ever. I find myself thinking, 

"I got this without meetings, without meditation, our even without my sponsor." Then my attitudes and behaviors show up and I realize this is my medicine. I need my program, my sponsor,  and my meetings. To maintain my life. So grateful and proud. 

One day at a time, is all we have. And I pray, for another sober 24 today. Have an awesome day.

    Everyone needs a sponsor. A person that can point out when our ego starts to play the director of the show. To see our character defects when we cannot. To hold us accountable. Without one, you're running your own show. Be very careful with this.

    I'm at 339 days sober, and while that's all good, I suffer tremendously from depression. Back in the day, some wine would really smooth out the rough edges, of course until it didn't and I became physically addicted. I try and find solace in meetings and lots of prayers. Keeping busy helps too. That, and my trusty psychiatrist who so earnestly tries to help me. So glad though, that each day is s new beginning. Peace and love to all.

    To the newcomers. Depression comes and goes. When we stay sober we can deal with it in a better way. Celebrate and appreciate the little things in life. One of my sons once told me that 95% of what we worry about never even happens.
    I do know that everything that has come my way with the help of my higher power, house , car, wife, grandkids, could disappear in one little shot glass.
    Meetings do help when depressed. In fact that's when you need to go!
    If you want what we got do what we do. So far it's worked for me.
