Good morning family. I always start off my day thanking God for waking me and for that I am truly grateful.
Sum Sum Summer time.
I love this time of the year. I especially love the fact that I am clean at this time of the year. There are so many things to do and I am grateful to be able to enjoy them.
Summer is also a dangerous time of the year for me. Its a trigger. Cookouts, block parties, summer concerts and all the summertime activities used to mean drinking and partying. Today I have to be mindful of this. I have to be vigilant because as you all know I have relapsed several times already.
I know me. I know that I loved to get high. I don’t like the pain and suffering that goes along with it. I also know that if there was a way to use without the misery and unmanageability I would. I also know that, that suggests control and control is impossible. So I have to learn how to deal with life on life’s terms without using.
I am thankful that I have a sponsor and a network and meetings to go to. If it had not been for the above mentioned I would die a addict.
Thank God today I am free.
Peace and blessings to you and your family. Have a happy, healthy and safe summer my friends.
