T.G.I.F. THANK GOD I’M FREE


image

FREE
From the horrors of active addiction.
FREE
From the self made prison and isolation.
FREE
To be who I was meant to be.
FREE
To come and go as I please.
FREE
To make mistakes and learn from them.

But FREEDOM ISN’T FREE.

I had to do some things to obtain and then maintain this freedom. I have to continuously be vigilant in my pursuit of recovery. I have to make changes and adjustments to my attitude and behavior on a regular basis. I have to maintain daily contact with people who strive for the same things as I do.

I have to remember that my pain, misery and suffering is only a hop, skip and a jump away. If I choose to forget where I came from. I will surely be doomed to repeat. I will be caught up in the grips again and I will not make it out. I do not kid myself about that. It’s a FACT!

I am only free because I choose to continue to do whatever it takes. I continue to keep in constant contact with the people that helped save my life in the first place. I continue to take the suggestions, contact my sponsor, read the literature, make meetings and share what I am going through. Good or Bad.

My recovery is MY RESPONSIBILITY.

Maintaining my freedom is not only a job..Its an adventure. It’s an adventure that I am more than willing to partake in everyday.

Peace and Blessings
