Not so hard to stay sober really. Just never leave the house. I need to start meetings again for sure because things like anniversaries aren't a lot of fun. Instead of an accomplishment you think instead about what you felt that day you got drrunk last and how terrible you felt right before the shot hit the back of your throat. The reasons you had for drinking that night and why you drank so much. And those reasons are still there. The feelings you will take with you forever. You may work through them, you may not feel them all the time but they will always be there. Just there, laying next to your dna.
So I need to get to a meeting. It's on my to do list. Get back into being grateful for being sober and remembering that not being will be really bad. Cause you forget about that when the years wrack up.
So no congratulations necessary. I've simply been too busy to get into trouble. If I don't start doing the things I need to be doing, though, trouble will surely find me. It always does.
