Sober living for me is a lot about being thankful for the many blessings of recovery in my life. The easier softer way is to drink or abuse a substance or hurt people. The harder more tedious way is to change and put down the chemicals and deal with real life, raw feelings and miraculously see that the promises do come true. We will know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. Our fear of economic insecurity will leave us. We will realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
