Sober Perspective – The Simple Gift of Presence
It’s About Paying Attention
My cat’s loud purr
His soft fur
His need for comfort
Sitting on my chest
When I’m busy trying to read
My children’s laughter
Their too loud chatter
Their need for reassurance and calm
“It’s ok no need to sound the alarm”
Earlier our evening meal
Sat at the table
I notice how I feel
Conversation sounds reverberate
Around the kitchen
For wine I’m not wishing
Kid’s looking for our approval
And our love
They’re in no doubt
We have more than enough
Alcohol’s not what it’s about
It’s really not
Booze lessens and takes cheap shot after shot
Making you forget what you’ve got
Wine you’re not really worth a mention
‘Cos life’s all about paying attention
And I wasn’t before

What does Courage mean to you? Does it take courage to stop drinking? Why?
and we’re there to help with answers to these as well
What advice would you give our Newbies about those first 30 or 40 days? What do you remember about the early sticking points ?
Early sobriety is so so difficult I am having a very difficult time maintaining motivation. I am one of those who “never reached rock bottom.”?
Do you really PROMISE it’s better on the other side? Swear?
