So I had to bowl tonight which is fine but I am only back after a near fatal accident in which I nearly lost my right arm. Of course I'm right handed, right? Anyway I was pretty much told sports how I once new them were over! WHAT! So I have worked extremely hard over the last 14 months to rehabilitate my arm all while battling the addiction of pain meds! Its been 8 months since I've used any mind or mood altering substance so I figure WTF, time to move forward. Figured I was just going to be a lefty but I wanted to give it a gi rt handed, after all I can golf, throw a baseball, shoot a basketball ect... If the dr. didnt think I could do that then hmmm...So I was actually able to bowl but with a price...PAIN! That nasty four letter word. If one thing triggered my urge to use it was pain. This isnt my average stub my toe pain either but it is tolerable with the help of my God! A kid on my team was like I can help that pain Here's a Vicodin and a shot...WOW! I ahd no problem turning him down and ever so subtly telling him the last time I did that I was gone for days that's why I dont do it anymore. He's like "weird" but didn't persist! The only reason I bring this topic up is it is only because the wonderful program of AA and a God of my understanding that I had any chance of passing that test. God gives us courage because sometime in life we are going to have to be Brave! Because of my DEFENSE against the first drug/drink I was SUCCESSFULLY able to win this round(no pun intended)! I am just very happy and proud to be SOBER today!
