It’s hard to believe that another month has already gone by. It feels like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year, and yet here we are one step closer to summer.
For those of you who are new to this blog, each day I post a reflection on my personal journey through sobriety.
Today is April 1, so I want to take a moment to reflect on how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time.
It’s been exactly four months since I last had a drink, and I can honestly say that it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
Sobriety isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely worth it. Keep fighting the good fight, my friends!

I want to find exactly how, when and where my natural desires have warped me.
If I don’t take this step then there can be little sobriety or contentment for me because without a willing effort in discovering what emotional deformities one has been carrying within them all along – it will just happen again with another person/event!
The 4th step of Alcoholics Anonymous is a crucial one. It forces us to take an honest and deep look at ourselves, our vulnerabilities, and the harm we’ve caused others through our actions or inaction.
Without this willingness on behalf of all participants in AA (including sponsors), there can be little sobriety or contentment for anyone involved.
As you go about your day today, find time to reflect on how your emotional deformities have impacted yourself and those around you thus far.
Take these insights into consideration as you move forward with self-discovery efforts that will help you become stronger than before; it’s worth every bit of effort!
