My 8th Month
I don't know why I picked this topic, maybe to try to help me stay in gratitude. I am so grateful that I am no longer in my 8th month of sobriety, it was my hardest month. I almost gave up that month, I felt the worst that month, I wrote an angry letter to God that month. I was pissed, I had done everything I was supposed to, and still felt like crap. I often reflect back to that time and thank that same God I was angry with for giving me the courage to hang on. What if I wouldn't have? I would of never known the amazing life sobriety has to offer. My God, I'd still be lost. I know I haven't been sounding very grateful in my last few posts, I am, I really am. My entire life is God's grace as a direct result of the time and energy I put into my sobriety. So, if you're at that place where you've had it, where you want to give up...don't, IT GETS BETTER-I PROMISE!
