|Occupation:||SSD, by trade i am a chemist .|
|A little about me:||I am 51 years old,male,divorced,no kids.
I am struggling with alcoholism,coke,crack addiction,bipolar-depression my whole live.
I am dry since May 2009.
But i am severely isolating,loosing more and more friends.
And the f2f meetings do not cut it for me.
I am trying to recover since 1986.
I am a binger.
So to stay dry for long periods of time means nothing to me.
Sooner or later i go on a binge.
And i want to change me.
|For my friends in the Bipolars dealing with alcoholism support group:
"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation--some fact of my life--unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober, unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes."
~Big Book, p. 451
|It's a beautiful day!
|Remember how you feel today and how your day went today doesn't determine that tomorrow you will feel the same or your day will be the same. Each day is a new beginning with new feelings. Don't let thoughts of the tomorrow overwhelm you. Stay in the today only and you will see the good in life ,your life and in yourself.
There is good in each of us. Let's not forget the good things and always just think of the bad.
The negative thoughts,the Stinkin Thinkin is not Reality.
Love to all,
