I have committed to ride my bike to work at least once a week for the summer. Gas prices of $3.25 a gallon greatly help me in this resolve. I truly enjoy riding my bike, and there is nothing better than an early morning bike ride, unless you combine that with a quick swim in a nearby lake - which I will do later this summer. I have decided to take 2 weeks to a month off of running, my body needs some serious healing.
Last night at the meeting, there were 48 people and at least 24 of them were in their first 90 days of sobriety. It was interesting because the topic was about whether or not to go to places where there will be drinking. My personal view is that I avoid those places, I don't enjoy them anyway, and I don't like to play with fire. Although I have been sober 22 years, 10 months and 13 days, I can get drunk today just like anyone else. I have seen so many people fool themselves with this stuff. I don't think most folks agree with my perspective on this, but I am fine with that.
Being sober is the most important thing in my life. Why would I play around with that? Or as my friend Larry says, I don't keep snakes in my silverware drawer. I really love that!
