A World with Clear Eyes
I was a “happy-go-lucky” drunk and an avid party goer. I was almost always happy. But when I had hangovers, I saw the truth of what I was becoming—sad, depressed and demoralized.
I don’t like heights. Five feet up a ladder is my limit. At work on the 15th floor, I’m uncomfortable if I get too close to the window even though I realize I’m being irrational.
The Show’s Over
One of the biggest blessings of getting sober through the Steps of AA is the knowledge that I no longer have to be an actor in life. From the time I was born I had a role to play.

Grapevine Daily Quote October 2
“My understanding of a Higher Power is still subject to shifts. Sometimes, I think of it as The Unknowable, or as The Great What Is. Often, I envision it as an indifferent force, something like an electrical current, that is available to all living things and from which human beings can derive strength and generosity and acceptance. The one thing I feel sure of is that it’s more powerful than my will.”
