Just another day.

Today is Sunday 21st January 2018. Another day, another Sunday.

If you glance at this screenshot off my phone of my 12step app you’ll see that it just happens to be my 5000th day sober. One day at a time as they say.

I never thought about reaching goals like this when I arrived at the rehab door in the summer of 2004. I know if someone had suggested 5000 minutes sober that would have seemed a stretch especially if I wasn’t an inpatient at a treatment centre.

Now I just plod on day to day acknowledging I’m an alcoholic, someone for whom drinking just simply causes me problems I’d rather not have. Most notably that one drink will kick off an incessant craving for more as aptly encased in the saying.

One drink is too many. One hundred not enough.

If you’re on this journey, wherever you are, I take strength from your steps alongside me. Thanks for being here and reading this.
