Welcome back - Go say hello to...

Go say hello to Sui

Her honesty reminds me
that for many people
a drunk after a period of sobriety
doesnt just happen in a click of a finger
it happens over a period of time
of letting up on the suggestions
letting up on those same suggestions
that led us away from that first drink
and helped us to develop that
essential mental defense against the first drink

When I am feeling restless irritable and discontented
the problem is in me
do I have a checklist of what I need to be doing? Yes
Is there anything I am not doing? Yes
Well just do it then , without sulking..
If I dont know what to do
I ask someone that knows me better
if its about my head - that person is usually a Sponsor!
mine or someone elses!!

Thank you for your share
and stopping by
Welcome back :)

Keep coming back
We are ALL worth it

I'm glad that you have the willingness to ask someone who knows you better. I wish that all in Al-Anon were so willing to open up and get honest.

That's why I really appreciate when someone is brave enough to come back and shares as Sui did. Really helps me to hold onto my seat and remain vigilent.

Indeed we are. No life is without value. No life is without meaning.

We all travel a different road, but we all end up at the same destination. All roads begin and end at Home.
