February 2014: My Very Best Day

The other day, someone asked me, “What was your best day sober?” That question got this old alcoholic to thinking (not always a good thing) about my early days in sobriety.

At my first AA meeting I realized I was not alone or crazy and there was a way out of all my troubles. That made that day my best day sober. Was the day I found my Higher Power my best day sober? How about the day I went to court sober for the first time and the judge only fined me $95 for the many outstanding tickets that I had racked up while drinking? Or the day I saw colors—other than grey—for the first time in a long time? Or the day I went to my first St. Patrick’s Day parade sober, something I always knew was impossible to do. Was that my best day sober?
