I always thought that when I stopped drinking all of the fun would stop.
Until the fun stopped while I was drinking. Forget fun! That wasn’t even on my radar. I had to figure out how I was going to live this life without alcohol.
Yikes. Scary. No clue.
I was having a power outage, not knowing that I had made alcohol my power. When it discontinued its usefulness, I had to replace that source. That answer. That solution. It obviously wasn’t working for me anymore.
When you’re having a power outage and the lights go out, what do you do? Call for someone to fix it. Go to the source. It’s the same with my body, mind and spirit. I have to go to the source to fix it.
“God, I’m having a power outage. Please help me.”
Those words saved my life.
I promise the fun in your life will return. Really. I can have fun without alcohol and thrive with others like myself. It is not a prison sentence like I looked at it before: “I am the only one here at this party NOT drinking. Poor me.”
There are others like me (and you) in the room. We just don’t know it yet. Somehow we find each other and give each other that support and the hug we need—.
“He must become greater; I must become less.”
