And lots of it... I have an exam coming up next Thursday and it's freaking me out a lot. The material is huge! However, I have written down a revision plan for each day leading up to the day, and so far so good. I also remembered something my sponsor said when I moaned about having a bad day: "Start your day again." That is just so simple and wise. I also remembered that I can always do the "next right thing" which again is so apt today. The meeting this evening was a heated discussion about traditions 6 and 10. It was interesting once the initial frustration wore off. I'm just grateful there wasn't any newcomers at that particular meeting. If I had been one, I'd probably left in the break and gone home for a glass of wine as it seemed a bit over the top and aggressive at times. But I wasn't, and I didn't.

Today I'm grateful for the support and guidance of my sponsor who's also going through a very rough time in her life. I pray that all will go well for her. I'm grateful for another sober and conflict free day.


  1. Hi. I just started reading your blog. I went back and read from the beginning. You must bet he strongest alcoholic ever. If I worked in a bar there would be no stopping me. I have 24/7 access to my neighbor's beer fridge, and that's tempting enough without all the people laughing and having a good time. I am so impressed by your fortitude. And, in the scheme of things, although I know you feel deflated by your slip up, two glasses of wine in the past 3 months vs. 90 bottles (or more) of wine in the last 3 months is amazing. Think about that.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I try to think about the positives :)
