BENEFITS OF SOBRIETY
A full recovery from drug addiction is a journey, and I have gained and lost, quite a bit through it all. I have written before that my ability to leave addiction behind had more to do with my commitment to becoming a better person than it was about removing drugs and alcohol from my life.
I started to reach out to a couple of old friends of mine letting them know I had a new number and something awesome happened. Not only did these friends respond, but they were excited to be speaking to me and to hear my story.
I am sure you have heard the saying “did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed?”, a common phrase associated with a grumpy person. In my experience there is truth to the concept, the way a day starts off can often be a precursor to how the rest of that day will go.
My co-workers and I have turned bowling into a weekly event, complete with friendly trash talk and some pretty entertaining gamesmanship. I was on the wrong end of the scorecard this past week after guaranteeing a victory.
