Today I am grateful for my therapist. I have therapy appointments most Fridays and I am grateful for the opportunity to speak and be heard by her. I am grateful that she is attempting to equip me with tools to help me deal with my anxiety. I am grateful for these things, because they will keep me from turning back to alcohol for comfort.
I am stronger than I think.
In my active addiction. I was so often scared and so often defeated. I felt like failure defined my life, it seemed that I could no longer do hard things.
I am learning, every day, that I can do hard things. Everyday that I do not drink, I win. Everyday I accomplish something that just a year ago, seemed impossible.
