Twenty -Two Years

by Daniel · 3 comments

Recovery has become a way of life for me.  It was twenty-two years ago today that my parents picked me up at Cortland State to head to rehab again.  I was through, I was beaten down.  I needed peace of mind and I was willing to do anything.  My way simply was not working.  I was alone in a crowded room, I could not stop drinking, and I felt like a failure.  I wanted more in my life.  I needed help to overcome alcoholism.

Well one day at a time life began to get better and better.  I was not a quick learner, I was frustrated at times, the country was in a recession and work was difficult to come by.  But I made a commitment to myself that this was it, this was my shot to fulfill my potential.  I would not quit, I would never, ever, ever quit!  I wanted what others had and I was willing to do what was suggested to get it, even when I did not agree with it.

Today I can tell you that when I took suggestions the outcomes where better than when I road alone!  I have made some major mistakes however, I have never once considered it a viable option to cash it all in and return to the drunken life!  Life is good!

Go, Go, Go…
