New



On Tuesday at my womens meeting we read the last story in the Big Book. It talks about how AA teaches you how to not just stop drinking but how to stay stopped. The author talks about how AA taught him how to handle sobriety and how that was what he needed because he'd never been able to handle it before.

I remember when I first came into AA I thought it was just about not drinking. I had no concept of sobriety at all.

Thankfully I think I am slowly starting to grasp what sobriety is.

I feel like I'm at the entry way of something new. Not sure what it is but I'm open to it. I'm ready to live, to be. No more just existing from one day to the next.

Maybe it's just the depression lifting. I kind of feel like the daffodils that are just starting to poke through the earth.

Whatever it is, it's good.

It's a beautiful feeling. Sobriety isn't just about not drinking, it's a way of life. (Hugs)Indigo
