Grateful to have another day clean.

I wake up everyday and thank my higher power for another day clean because I know that its because of his grace and mercy and it didn’t have to be this way. I also say a prayer for the still sick and suffering addicts as well. I pray they find their way home.

I woke up with a sense of freedom this morning that I have never felt. I am so grateful to be able to share my experience, strength and hope with all of you. I finally can say that the lightbulb is on and shining bright. It is all because of God, NA and all of the support and encouragement I receive from you.

I went to a group anniversary last night. It was a meeting and a dance afterwards. I have never been to a dance and not used so at first I felt a little awkward. In time that feeling passed and I was able to enjoy the rewards of being clean and around people who have found a new way of living. I had the time of my life and I did it without the use of drugs which was a new experience in itself.

I woke up with a new belief that I can do this. I woke up without a hangover, hotbox or a pasty mouth. I woke up without the guilt and embarrassment. I woke up early and made a meeting and shared my gratitude with everyone. I am feeling really confident about my new way of life. I am learning how to live just by showing up, making meetings, listening and sharing. I am following the suggestions of my sponsor, grand sponsor and the other predecessors in the rooms. Utilizing my higher power and most importantly not picking up.

The message is clear. An addict any addict can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use drugs and find a new way to live. If I can do it after using for 36 years so can you.

Today is a new day. I am grateful to have found a new way of live.


Peace and blessings
