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.

Postponing HNT. . .


I originally had my HNT pics all set up but am not gonna post them today.

I got a message this morning about my sister M (in the fellowship) that went out early this month. Since she has made some contact with me and suggestions about her getting back to walking a clean and sober path. She is now in the hospital with an infection in her heart caused from using. I am told it is very fatal.

I called my sponsor leaving a message this morning. I told her that my emotions about this are layered. Deep down I know I am hurt and fearful but the uppermost layer is anger right now. She had the perfect repsonse, "this is not about you right now" -- not to discard my emotions but to allow some action to take place. She suggested to me some direction.

Again I am asking for your prayers.

I am very grateful to be a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. I am thankful to God for blessing me in so many ways. I am very thankful that I do not have to go through this experience alone.

here for you
will pray for you to have strength and detachment--not to not care but to know you are powerless over someone else's using

but you are not using--for that I am grateful

I am reminded of a story about Lois and Bill--he was lamenting how no one he was working with stayed sober. Lois told him---but you are sober.

I hope M is ok. A longtimer told me how a death in the disease does not go unnoticed-- it doesn't

I pray she be ok but if not, that you will be ok

I love you

We in Al-Anon hear your story all the time. If you want our help and love, we are there for you. Many "double winners" say that they learn to stay sober in AA and learn to live in Al-Anon. I think that AA helps people live, too, but if you need an extra boost, we are here for you. We have the same ism and have all loved an alcoholic. I you care to read some of my journey, you can visit my blog. Blessings!!
