On Saturday 12 January I was 14 years sober. The Power that I have in my life has allowed me to live in this way for 14 whole years. In all that time I have never seriously thought of picking up a drink. Not when I got cancer, not when my husband died, not when I was happy, not when I was sad - no, never at all. How cool is that for an alcoholic who only a week before that was dying of a disease over which I had no power or control? Each time I celebrate another sober year, I am blown away by the miracle of it. It's a miracle every day and I know that, but around my brthday, I like to reflect on the journey so far. It's been a helluva ride but one that I can recommend to anyone who is struggling with alcoholism, quit struggling and recover.
