Five Years Sober

Hello world and good day to you all. I have been sober since May 23rd, 2009 and life has been so much better for myself. I go to AA meetings and see a counselor every week for the last few years and my life has improved 200 percent. My old friends , I am not sure what became of them. So be it. I live another new life today than what I did at age 45. I live in Midland , Texas and was brought up in the oil patch all my life. There were times of course I strayed away for years to other cities in the country. Howeve, my home is still in Midland, Texas.

Staying sober in this town is easy , it's the living in this town that is hard to do. The obsession to drink has left my body and I also stopped smoking when I quit drinking at La Hacienda Treatment facility in Kerrville, Texas.Its been only five years so God only knows how far I can actually go with my life.

I have a new employer and being all powerful and abiding by their work ethics , I have maintained a stable job, that I love. I have blessed with my family members wanting to spend time with me. I have few friends and that is fine with me. I have quality friends instead of quatity. I have a renewed look upon life and how my life goes ahead in the future. I have a future now and it looks bright.

I wish all these good things to all of you in the world and try to just stay away from that first drink and I promise you will have a better life ahead of yourself. God Bless
