They should put that into the Big Book, darlin.
I'm one of the one's who are totally constitutionally capable of being honest with themself...and yet still suffer. Good thing I have beer.
I think I like it.
And I'm totally enabled...I've seen to that.
But, I know what you mean
And I'm happy and proud of your being clean
Keep your heart filled with honesty
And your cup will overflow with nothing but purity

loved your poem

Sober here 6 yrs..... something to share with you

Am I an old soul or a fool
because my youth is faded and
the grey hairs appear......
Often I ponder, the days of yesteryear
to the times of my youth
when I was careless and free
wild nights spent cruising the roads
drunk and disorderly,
rude and obnoxious,
selfish and annoying....
not caring about anyone but me
believing I would live forever
and die at the age of 30...
with a drink in one hand
a joint in the other
and a man between my legs.....
"Sigh" those were the good ole days...
Age of 30 went and passed....
on the brink of divorce, a little boy in tow
angry words thrown
drunk and disorderly
hating all men.
Ten years have come and gone
seeing what I have left behind
brings a tear or two to my eyes
as I feel my life is fading faster
than I can keep up......
Today I have wisdom
and seek knowledge for more
wanting to forget the past
make new tomorrows
slow down....appreciate the way life is today....
being grateful I am alive
and able to endure
life's simple pleasures
one day at a time.

If it feels good, we can get addicted to it. Being in love feels good. What many of us don't realize is that LOVE takes time and lots of work. One of the lies many of us humans believe is that love is supposed to come easy. We are surprised when it brings out our worst as well as our best. That's where we get to grow (individually and together). We confuse love with like, infatuation or lust, and think that's all there is. Then we never get to the real love part because we lost interest and don't have sense enough to do the work required to get the good stuff. Kinda like expecting payday before we go to work.
