It's a new year and my thoughts and prayers go out to every one of the Alcoholics and Addicts in active addiction. Only we trully know that place and how hard it is to get out. I have a long post to finalise about this last year, it has been immense. Maybe tomorrow I'll finish it?
Funnily the latest contact with the ex-wife's family is a threatening e-mail about a Christmas card that I happened to send to them as a family. You know, like no hard feelings, lets move on. It was taken as the polar opposite and they think they have a case for harrasment which would be a benchmark case and brilliant fun! Harrassment by Christmas card! makes me laugh, good luck with that one. I think I best stay away and forget the old olive branch thing. It doesn't work with closed minded and petty people. Don't look back.
People at the NA New Years party last night were saying that I was like a different person, looking good and having fun! I never thought I would write that sentence and it feels weird starting a new year on a positive note. I'm am happy at last and it struck me last night that times with my friends here are so special that I'm here for good. I'm that committed and convinced that it is my friends that have kept me sober, yeah I got this far but I would still be in that bush at four in the morning and most likely dead if it wasn't for the love and strength they give me. Also, I need to mention my family. It was hard losing Dad to Cancer but the way the rest of my family dealt with that and at the same time backing me for what would have been the last time. It was awful for them and I acknowledge that. I feel the greatest thank you to them is to finally stay sober and put an end to what has been years of weird behaviour all related to an addiction of something or other. It's obvious now looking back but then I was great at decieving people, I'd had years of practice. I'm not going anywhere, I promised my Dad I would stay clean and sober and that is what I'll do. Don't look back, enjoy the alcoholfreeme.com.
