3 years ago today I walked into my first meeting....and to say my life was forever changed is the understatement of the year. I went to quit drinking, and in return learned a entirely new and amazing way to live life. Being honest, putting others first, letting God be in charge, forgiving people. and myself...an amazing way to life, an amazing new life for me.
I must have looked like complete crap that day, because this morning when I picked up my chip everyone comment on how much better I looked. I came in grey, and sweaty, and wanting to die...My outsides matched my insides, sad and broken. I don't remember a word that was said that day. Only that they were laughing, and I was not. I couldn't fathom being able to laugh without drinking. I remember thinking -what in the hell are they laughing about, this is not funny-
I wanted what they had enough to come back the next day, and the next, and the next...until the days added up to 3 years.
Today I am grateful...so very grateful!
