I consider that as a good thing, because it also means that I don't often have the craving to drink or use anymore. I no longer have to consciously ask myself how in the world I am going to stay sober for the rest of the day, which is a beautiful relief, because for a long time in my sobriety I wanted to drink, especially when I started working the 12 Steps and faced some uncomfortable memories and painful feelings.
2013 has brought me magnificent changes in my body, mind and spirit. I've continued to work the Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and now Al-Anon as well. I surf and write and play and work... and I have fallen deeply in love in a way that I did not think was possible.
