30 days of gratitude: Day 18

Today I am grateful for…

…this restful and uneventful day.

…Facebook. Despite a lazy day I could still socialize and chat away with friends.

…the realization that I can choose to feel whole. It is bliss to be whole without needing a partner or alcohol, to just be me and do what I do.

…being sober. This time last year I was unemployed and sat at home drinking alcohol obsessively every day. And I thought – this is not right, I left my job so that I would get the opportunity to turn my life around. Most of all, I left that hellhole so that I would stop drinking. Yet there I was, drinking away and that scared me profoundly. Still it would take another three weeks or so of drinking before I would have built up the strenght to seek help.

…having made the right decisions, several times over.
