To blog-or not to blog

that is the question.

I started this blog because I wanted people to have a place to go, to connect. I never want another alcoholic to suffer alone.

In the beginning I blogged for you, but this blog turned around and saved my life during a time that I was so depressed that during my drinking days with out a doubt, I would have been hospitalized for. I blogged my way through it. It gave me just enough time out of my head to stay sane. And then once again I was blogging for you.

I'm not sure now who I am blogging for, or what direction this blog should take -if any-

I know this....I don't want to blog about being sick anymore. I have fought, and worked, and prayed-and I have recovered. To talk about being sick all the time will keep me sick. But I have this under line feeling of guilt to get on here and blog about my absolutely fabulous life. But that's what it is. Sure, I have bad days-But I go to a meeting, I call my sponsor, I pray. I don't drink-and it passes.

If you want what I have, do what I do.


  1. Just. Remember Emily, you are never recovered..AA is a daily reprieve.......

  2. I didn't mean to sound like I had my disease handled-God does, but I do not. The reason I use the word recovered is I believe we are (it also says it in the BB) as long as we take our medicine (pray, help others, live a honest life, so on) For me when I use the word recovering, I am giving myself an excuse to still be sick. Just my thoughts on it.
