I went into my mailbox yesterday and there was an envelope from Federal Government.
I had called my Lawyer last week to ask what is going on with the benefit request that I initiated 2 years ago...my Lawyer said she would get back to me and never did.
So...I open the letter and there is a note that asks me to sign a particular line and the note also says "you were approved for benefits..return ASAP".
Immediately....I wanted to celebrate...Immediately I wanted to drink. I have been drowning my sorrows in alcohol over lost employment and lost family connections for the last 2 years!
Why not celebrate? My STUPID brain asked me?
Um...because you will die...that is why. So my BRAIN says..."No you won't, just have a few".
My logic says...its is NEVER a few....so NO...I'm keeping very busy. Praising God for my good fortune...and I'm about to stop by a yard sale near my home.
Hope you all that are trying to stay sober...are doing well.
Hope anyone who is struggling finds some hope today to make a plan to stop.
Life is so much better sober..and I need to remember that (especially right now).
