Hello, Diamond Nurse!
I, too, am a recovering alcoholic...sooo blessed and happy and grateful not to have to wake up with a drink, go to bed with a drink. Nursing school is going very well, thanks to my Higher Power and sobriety! I know your struggle, and you have my love, prayers, and best wishes for a wonderful journey!
Just a few jewels my sponsor passed on to me, that we still talk about almost 5 years after the HELL:
Enjoy your sobriety: have fun with it!
Let those in the rooms love you until you can love yourself!
When you feel sadness (at loosing your best freind, the bottle), or:uhoh21: fear, call before you fall!
is an emotion we cannot afford!
Either God has removed the obsession or he hasn't; act on this gift, accept that your Higher Power has removed this terrible obsession, and move on with your life. Everything else will come.
Know that I love you as we both trudge along this road of recovery!
