Today marks the 17th anniversary of the last time I last drunk, if you will.

While my life hasn't been perfect since 1988, I can only think of the hell I avoided by giving up liquor and drugs.

Today I'm not feeling all that great...old grief coming up over a failed relationship after going through some old pictures yesterday and seeing the two of us together in happier times. At least I'm not numbing out with food or alcohol to squelch these feelings.....the crying won't kill me but I do have the wisdom to know that if I sit or wallow in these sad feelings, I can forget the things I have to be grateful I did a gratitude list starting with the letter A and worked my way to if I do that long enough, I'll tire of even thinking about my ex. :)

I plan on heading out to a meeting later to pick up my chip.....each day is a new opportunity.
