Thoughts of a Recovering Addict

For the first time in my life I have shut up and listened. I must say that it is working out well for me so far. I have a strong network of sober friends, including a great girlfriend, Nikki, who makes this time in my life so much easier to deal with. Although relationships are not encouraged early in sobriety, I wasn't going to turn my head on something that could be potentially great. We have a great time together and help each other through problems. In addition to having great friends, I also have a roof over my head, a vehicle to drive, a flexible job, and food on the table. These are all things I once struggled with while getting loaded. Everything I now have is a gift of sobriety. Currently, I am employed with Soba and intend to go to manager training this summer. Greg, who owns Soba, is very supportive of me and appreciates my work ethic. I am glad to be of service.

This is such a life changing experience that I have been blessed with. I would not trade it for the world. It just goes to show that if you stay sober anything is possible. I have a great life today and I have only been here for 118 days. The future is looking brighter than ever. I can only imagine how I will feel five years down the road. The sky is the limit.
