A Fresh Start 

September 4, 2016 by Kayce L.

When I started this journey of recovery, I was overwhelmed by my feelings of resentment, anger, grief and fear. If I wanted to get and stay sober, I had to be prepared to get angry, cry and grieve to accept all of the feelings that I had been suppressing. With a fresh start and my program, I can easily do these things today. One Day at a Time. Start fresh, be open, be willing, and be honest.

          Thomas a year from now everything could be different with your daughter. Living amends May make a big difference to build her Trust. When you let go people come back to you if it’s God’s will. I’m sorry for your pain.

            I’m ok Janice we talked for a while her anger just needs time but one day maybe she come home and have a fresh start !!!!!!!!

    • Take heart Thomas because eight years ago my ex-wife told me that I ‘would never see (my) kids ever again.’ What a terrible black day that was. And for a very long time in fact I did not see my kids and gave them to God. But for a year now my daughter has been attending college and living in an apartment with her sober dad. Miracles do happen.

    Thomas I’m so sorry it didn’t go well… We cannot control people places and things…. Nothing happens in gods world by mistake so we have to accept situations and I know you already know that… You are right you are going to be ok.. Focus on your wife and pray for your daughter.. Pray for gods will to be done …the miracle in this is that you have your sobriety and didn’t have to pick up a drink over it and for that you can be grateful … Stay in the moment and remember one day at a time my friend!!!

    30 days today, about 40 without any kind of pill. No desire to drink, but a few pain pills would take away the monotony, drudgery and insomnia, but would eventually lead to a drink and another trip to detox. 9 times is more then enough. So gettin high by doing cardio at the gym. I have to remember this is paradise compared to detox

    Hang on Thomas! There are no guarantees
    Or instruction books on kids. One of mine as you know is
    Still battling this disease. Still haven’t surrendered.
    I will think of your situation in my prayers.
    Scott you are right cardio is a better way to get high.
    Don’t stop coming back. However long it takes.
    We don’t shoot our wounded.

    • Thomas Cromer says:

    Paul all I can share is my experience strength and hope and it comes from my heart and what was given to me I can’t keep I have to give back to others… For me life has a purpose now and before I didn’t want to live… This program has completely changed my life and I’m so grateful for every day I wake up and then when I try and do the next right thing..throughout the day and then thank my hp for keeping me sober that day…I guard my sobriety and no one can take it away from me!! Dave I also have a child with this disease and I can’t get him drunk and I can’t get him sober… Anyway thankful for all of you!!
