I’ve been given a gift and now try to never lose sight of why I have it or where I came from.
When we first get sober, we have dozens of suggestions thrown our way, and a lot of them seem silly. They tell us to get a sponsor to walk us through the steps.
After all – getting sober in itself was a true feat.
I was so caught up in the romance and fog of it all, that I didn’t care to take a look at what he was doing for his sobriety.
One day he came over to my house and told me that he wanted to use.
I think the earliest I ever dated in early sobriety was when I had just over five months.
Five months compared to 15 years of constant using is nothing.
