My friend Lanny called me yesterday, he broke his anonymity to get my number from my employer. A recent friend killed himself saturday, after trying to get back into the rooms after a 3 yearbout of relapse. Bill was a good man who had been sober for 14 years, he relapsed 3 years ago and moved down from Arkansas to be near inlaws also in the program. I had been picking Bill up for meetingsand we would talk about anything and everything under the sun. Bill was very knowledgeable about addictions, because he had been an addictions counselor for 9 years bfore his relapse. I asked him what caused his relapse and he told me that he forgot the two big rules the other counselor told him about. Don't let the job take the place of your meetings, and don't forget to maintain your spritual fitness. I and others had been calling Bill the last week about going to meetings and he wouldn't return our calls. I even went out to the RV park he was staying at, but he wasn't at home. Bill was interred tuesday, and will have a memorial service this saturday. I have 2 more people added to my list of daily calls to other alcoholics. This disease kills us sober and drunk. Call someone the life you save may be your own.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
