August 30, 2012 (this day)

Erika is here visiting because she’s going to the wedding of a high school friend.  Today she went to school with Carole – she attended the college where Carole teaches.  It’s hot again but not unbearably so.  I went to a Tradition Eight meeting last night and I love the line that goes something like – alcoholics will simply not listen to someone who is paid to carry the message of the 12th Step!  Indeed.

And many alcoholics won’t listen to someone who isn’t paid, who is a member of AA, and who sees the train wreck ahead.

I am so incredibly fortunate to be sober, to have gotten it before it got me.
