Tomorrow is six months sober for me. It has been a long, tiresome yet fulfilling journey so far. For six months i've woken every day without a hangover. I don't wake up wondering how i got home, or how i ended up somewhere else. No guilt, no remorse. I don't wake up and want to hide from the world, no hating myself or what i've done. No regrets. No shame. No bewilderment. No more constant pain, no more torn soul. Each and every day i wake up and realize it's okay to be me... i have energy to do the things i need to do to take care of myself and my children. No more neglect. I don't ever have to worry now, for i've truly handed over my life to my higher power. I now know that life is good, even great, and i know it will just get better. Sure i still have hard times but they don't take a toll on me. I do what i can and leave the rest in god's hands. I love myself! I love life! Six months ago i didn't. I have found hope... i have faith... and i know this is going to work... all i can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart to A.A and all it's members. It truly is remarkable what happens within when you are ready and willing... god bless you all
