Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

b-cuz of u


I made it!!!

I am definite that there is absolutely no way that I could have made it, 365 consecutive days, in a row without this spiritual solution. The Fellowship introduced me to a God of my understanding, a Faith that my entire life I never trusted, never beleived, never FELT.


Because of you, I have life today; Because of you I am no longer alone in this battle; Because of you I fell in love with my life and yours; Because of you I am learning to turn it ALL over; Because of you I can cry and it is not out of self-pity; Because of you I laugh, giggle and smile so much; Because of you I bear no shame or guilt anymore; Because of you I am made accountable; Because of you I have 365 days 2 day and am going to continue to walk in the Light of the Spirit.

I made a birthday card for all of you, because today is just not my celebration. My journey is not done by self. I am a part of you, God's beautiful children.

2 dAAy I am grAAteful and thAAnkful that you are here, trudging the road to happy destinies and picking me up when I fall.

SC - my eyes are running over with tears of joy right now. I am so happy for you and happy with you. Congratulations and happy birthday to you beautiful.

Last night at my meeting someone received a sixteen year chip and when she passed it around I looked at it closely and began crying because the words, "To thine own self be true." Really struck a chord for me. That is what all of this is about... being true - to thyself and the only way I can do that is through the spirituality that program has brought to my life.

Blessing to you today and always. Keep on keeping on girl!
