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.

It's Fri-Day!

Whoooo Hoooo it's Friday, it's Friday, Shake Your Booty!

Shaking the grAAtitude!
Now that I no longer participate in drunken blackouts, I am . . .
- able to remember the conversations I had the night before
- able to look at myself in the mirror minus the self-loathing part
- able to carry the message
- able to be a be a friend
- was able to give my coin that was given to me the day I left Casa (30 days sober then) to "M" last night . . . with a personal prayer attached
- able to keep my plants alive
- able to keep hope alive
- able to feel ALL emotions and know it is ok
- able to see the woman that gave me life and really love her for the Mom she is
- able to reduce the risk of the picture above ENORMOUSLY!
- able to be able

Once upon a time, I succeeded in to the greatest moment of desperation . . . borne from this was an ounce of Willingness followed by the warmest exposure of this powerful phenomenon whom I call God.

Hi Sober Chcik

thank you very, very, very, very, very much for your love and support whilst I was in hospital. You and the other guys helped me through.
