Suburban AA

I went to a 10 a.m. meeting in a suburb and talked about my Crappitude™, what's going on with my KindaSponsor™, and how I need to both work the steps and get a temporary sponsor.

The topic was Step 8 -- my KindaSponsor™ is on my list as of today -- and I heard a lot of stuff I needed to hear.

So! Gratitude.

  • I'm grateful for the idea of living one day at a time
  • I'm grateful that -- despite my best efforts to the contrary -- I have not had to take a drink since February 14, 2005
  • I'm grateful for a husband that puts up with my BullSheeyite
  • I'm grateful for the trademark symbol (™)

Now to get to some of the stuff my husband asked me to take care of today. On my list: Contact Netflix about the Pushing Daisies DVD (#2 of season 1) that my baby boy puppy punched through with one of his massive, pointy, white canine teeth.

I think that you are actually in a good place so far as recovery goes; you are being open and honest with yourself for what sounds like the first time in awhile, and really, that is the beginning of moving forward again. I can't speak for anyone save myself, but in my experience, there is always a period of time in my recovery where I feel like I am going backwards or simply standing still, but as long as I don't drink and go to meetings, it ends and I later find out that there was something BIG going on internally; sometimes it takes going back some before we can move forward. I say yay for you!
