I'll never be normal.

Sometimes I wish that I was like average normal people. i wish that I made friends easily, did things in moderation and had easy self-confidence. But when I really think about it, I know that because of these things and other things that are wrong with me, I can help addicts. You don't have to be an... Sign in to see full entry.

Only one thing

Sometimes all I have energy for is one thing. But it is better that i do one thing instead of nothing and one thing instead of too much. Balance comes from doing a little bit at a time consistently. Sign in to see full entry.

I won't use drugs or alcohol.

Someone I know called his sponsor and told him that he wanted to get loaded. His sponsor told him, to wait until tomorrow. The next morning he called his sponsor again. "I can get loaded today, right?" "No you have to wait until tomorrow. " All that is required of us is to not get loaded today. Sign in to see full entry.

Making Mistakes

Today when I went to buy groceries I found out that the store didn't take credit cards but my regular ATM card would work. (I have two, each for a different account.) I didn't have the one I use most often, so I tried the other one. It took me a while to locate the pin number. After I did then I... Sign in to see full entry.

I am an emotional being.

Emotions are part of who I am. They are neither bad nor good. The problem isn't my feelings but my thoughts. Emotions come out of what I think about the situation. When I had twins I thought it was the hardest thing in the world. Other parents found it no big deal. For some people the death of a... Sign in to see full entry.
