Happy to be mailing out the first 5 bracelets today 🙂 super powers are on the way!
I got a great email from Colleen in my inbox on the weekend:
Wouldn’t it be interesting if we could live out two lives — sort of like the in the Christmas Carol? So we could see our life with alcohol, and the one where we chose sobriety? How interesting would it be if we could see how our lives would be played out with each scenario. What would we lose, gain?
I play this game in my head it scares me…because I know that alcohol would take everything away — my family, friends, health, finances, looks, I am so glad I am not on that path and am choosing sobriety — the upward path. But I know that the downward path of self-inflicted path of misery, pain and suffering is waiting for me — hiding and ready to pounce on me at places like backyard bbq, birthday parties and other seemingly innocuous places. I am grateful that I am on the path of sobriety and I don’t want to ever give up this freedom.
Had a nice time at my friend’s party … I didn’t have the desire to drink at all and this is SUCH a blessing. I have made it this far before, but always white knuckling it — feeling deprived that everyone could drink and I couldn’t. It is different this time. I feel like I am the lucky one …
