It’s been a rough week for me. I’ve gone to the bar six times this week, and I’m feeling pretty down about it.
But then I remember that there are people who drink every day, sometimes even twice a day! Who am I to judge?
If you’re struggling with alcohol use or addiction, please reach out for help. There is always hope!

The essence of all growth is a willingness to make a change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.AS BILL SEES IT, p. 115
I had been free of alcohol for a while, but it didn’t take long before new weeds started growing where they shouldn’t have.
Every time you think your work is done – more appear! You need to keep going even when things get tough because some day this will all pay off in the end:
The veggies are getting big and strong now; their colors vibrant enough that one might mistake them for being healthy instead disease riddled as we used too be before quitting drinking permanently .
After years of sobriety, I’ve found that my new labors are rewarded with lush vegetables and flowers.
My garden is weeded each time I look, but it never stays weed-free for long. It’s a continuous process to stay sober in today’s society.
What has your experience been? Have you had any struggles staying sober or getting over addiction? How did you overcome them?
