I attended a meeting this morning and saw some old pals. I stood outside talking to one for nearly an hour. She is exactly my age and has been sober for eighteen years, I have known her for most of those eighteen years. It is always nice to talk with her.
Last night I went to see a great movie with my gentleman friend. It has gotten mixed reviews, but we both really liked "The Debt." I was on the edge of my seat the entire time and gasped several times. It is very suspenseful with dark twists and turns.
Today I intend to have a very low-key day. I am still feeling the effects of the migraine prevention medication I have started. It makes me incredibly tired. BUT I have not had a migraine for a week now, and that is a big deal. Some of the docs at work have assured me that I will get used to the medication... but I know I will never get used to the migraines.
I hope you all have beautiful days. If you have the day off, I hope you enjoy it. If it is your first sober holiday, remember, your alcoholism never took a holiday, neither does your recovery.
God bless you all.
DAVE HAS EIGHT YEARS OF CONTINUOUS SOBRIETY TODAY - GO OVER AND WISH HIM A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
