103 DAYS CLEAN
Our disease has been arrested, and now anything is possible. We become increasingly open-minded and open to new ideas in all areas of our lives.

Just for today:
There is always more to learn and someone to learn from in my recovery. Today, I will be open to new ideas and willing to try them out. As long as I am, I know that anything is possible.
Hello and God Bless You.
I can remember not to long ago thinking that nothing was possible. I was depressed, suicidal, miserable and any other adjective you can think of. I was lost and felt like a lost cause. I didn’t see anyway out of my situation. I was stuck in a never ending cycle of destruction. I was killing myself and couldn’t stop myself. I had lost all control and eventually all desire to stop using and it was replaced with the desire to stop living.
God had a different plan though. I eventually made it into the rooms and after learning the hard way that I really have no control over my addiction I surrendered and became willing to try to be open minded to this new way of life. I am not gonna sit here and say this is easy. But it sure as hell beats that old way of thinking. Being closed minded to everything except drugs and negativity.
Open mindedness has been a blessing. I mean who would’ve known the possibilities. Had I known all I had to do was be open and just try I would’ve done this long time ago. If I would have just listened to my parents and everyone else I could have avoided a whole lot of heartache and pain. But that’s spilled milk, the past is the past I am open now and that’s what matters.
I am living the possibilities right now. I just got a promotion from my job, I am clean, I have God in my life, new friends, I am willing to help people and so much more has come from this. I am happy today and it all because I took the chance and applied the principals. God is great. I truly believe that through him and with some hard work and consistancy anything and I mean anything is possible.
