October 4th, AA Birthday...

I have had little to do with this, but on the 4th of this month I had 4 years without the need to drink. dAAve hit it when he reminded me that I just had to be "willing" to do some of the suggestions that AA has to offer. I have been doing that, and it is working for now, day by day. That's all I have, a day at a time. Year three was rough. My father and sister both passed away, and I miss them. I often have nightmares about my sisters death, as I saw her die. I hope these troublesome things pass. I know they will, as long as I remain willing to work toward staying sober and trusting my Higher Power at all times. I wish things were different at home, but I'm just giving into selfish desires concerning that. I went to two meetings in a row this week. Both Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I don't do that often. I enjoyed both meetings. I enjoy any AA meeting I attend. I didn't like AA for a long time. That has changed. For that I am grateful.

I pray you are all doing well. I am much less depressed. AB.

Happy Birthday AB. It's really nice to see that you're giving The credit to your Higher Power... I tell ya, I know I'm not the one who keeps me sober...And when I ask for help, all the better for me... Keep it up and way to go...

Happy birthday, pal.


Some of my friends have gone through transitional sober living to better their chances at sobriety. Good on you for 4 years. That's very impressive. Here's to the next 4 years!
