Soul Searching and stepwork

   It's a fact without all the alcohol and pill popping one does in active alcoholism and addiction that one uncovers their true self. One thing I discovered is that I am not what I thought I was.
  My sexual lines blurred and I would seek validation in many dark places....and I found out I'm straighter than I thought.  I love myself more as a human being. Working the 12 steps has shifted my perceptions in a better direction and I am grateful for getting my life back. My sense of humor, my soul, my love for mankind and my concern and love for family in recovery is strong. And I have a job I have held for 10 1/2 months. Bought a car as well. As long as I remember I'm powerless over my addiction and keep my recovery active, all will be well.
   I think I'm getting my groove back too! With the help of my sponsor and close friends, I hope to finally get back to work on my novel.
   Till next time....

The Recovery

Out of the wreckage
My soul's in flight
I'm breaking free
Of this devestating plight

My past is a prison
I can't seem to break
Of the 100 proof
That eased the ache

Much work to endeavor
And of this I'm afraid
But I might have perished
If it had stayed

Each day is  link
In a lifelong chain
I will enjoy the sun
And endure through the rain
