The Journey

Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes“Nothing Changes, if Nothing Changes.” It is the inscription on a coin a man gave me (whom I had never met), at an AA Meeting on a Sunday. I was 4 days sober. And each day I try to find my way through life with sobriety instead of the aid of alcohol.  I write this blog to journal my time recovering.  I have always used writing when I have lots of things turning around in my head. At some point, I just became numb.

I hope if you are reading this blog this helps you in some small way.  I know I have a lot of work ahead of me.  I never bothered to stop and think about it.  I am surprised at how AA seems to have helped me and others that also attend meetings.

Just like life with alcohol, life without alcohol there are good days and bad days.

I must say my bad days without alcohol are different and nowhere near as confusing as my bad days with alcohol.

  1. Enjoy the ride. There are numerous, awesome sober bloggers here on WordPress that have gone through it all and share their experiences in and out of AA. Use all the resources you can. Everything helps.

  2. Janis, THANK YOU for always stopping by my little recovery blog. Since we have met, you have been such an *Inspiration* to me, WHY? Because I get to see your wonderful *RECOVERY* begin and blossom, it reminds me of when I first started my own recovery years ago, and I love seeing people evolve and have all those *Light Bulb* moments when something special clicks in, and the KNOW……RECOVER is a Better Way of LIFE, and that they, & YOU ARE WORTH IT!!
    I Believe in YOU! Hugs & Blessings, ODAAT…. *Author Catherine Lyon*
