I'm back !


sorry for my absence;
I got home this morning from
3 weeks of treatment.

somewhere along my recovery
path, I lost the ability to "think
it through".

that feeling that I could somehow
control or moderate returned
after 6 years of sobriety.

just when I was finally able to
play the tape to the end, complacency
took over.

there were no reasons for me to drink.

Since the facility I entered has a medical
staff, I was able to make an important
med change.

In addition, they offer a strong spiritual
component to recovery.

I don't feel I lost anything other than
a sobriety date.

I'm proud of the time I was able to achieve;
as a former long-term 90 day wonder,
it was a major accomplishment.

Just like I tell people in the rooms;
what matters is what you do after
a slip.

get back on the horse and hold on
even tighter.
