New Years eve

Post by positrac » Thu Dec 31, 2015 4:56 am

Hey all I've been out of pocket for a while and yet time has flown by with many new challenges and opportunities. I was able to acknowledge 26 years of constant sobriety on 1 November 2015 (1989) and I was able to reflect the changes and growth no matter how slow they take on my behalf.

I was never good at holiday's as I felt like the square peg in the round hole and so I just retracted because people always made me nervous and even at AA parties it was only so much I could try and do before I felt unstable and slide on out to leave. It wasn't that I wanted to drink as much as the drink help me cope with the uneasy feeling of people in general and allowed me to forget the issues I feared.

So tonight I hope you all have fun and enjoy the gathering of friends, family and AA kinship and I wish you all a better 2016 in all that life throws our way.

Cheers.
Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.

I'll be watching something other than the ball drop, curled up in a blankie, having fudge and a cup of Decaf coffee!

Peace and Love to all this New Year!

Namaste!
