Apparently the average life term prisoner in the UK can expect to serve about 15 years before being paroled. If that is true my sobriety is therefore approaching a life term. Today is my 14th AA birthday – that is it is 14 years since I last took a drink.
The journey has been up and down and here and there at times. The last few years it has been more settle as the road has levelled out or I’ve just got more adept at negotiating the ups and downs and dodging the pot holes etc.
I’ve been invited to speak tonight at one of my favourite groups one that was for many years one of my home groups – it only isn’t at the moment as my limitations with the meniere’s disease mean I can’t easily get there. But a friend is going to give me a lift which is really kind and I’m really looking forward to being there.
