Re: Day 350 and quite an ongoing journey
I almost relapsed but for the grace of God and realize that a lot of my future recovery hinges on mindfulness and awareness of personal responsibility.

Keep it going. Only a couple of weeks until you can celebrate an anniversary.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Worrying about the "browning of America" is not racism. -- Faith

Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000

Nice! You did it!!
You felt the pull, and resisted. Well done.
A testament to all the hard work you've put in over the last almost-year

Go Phat go!!

If I shoot myself in the foot, I cannot very well blame the gun!


But HAVING a gun would be the equivalent of having a roulette wheel on your kitchen table. And handling the gun in such a way as to shoot yourself would be equivalent to spinning the wheel.
