Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Yesterday, I had the honor of seeing my friend get his 19 year sobriety coin. He didn't get it because he wished for it, he got it because he worked for it. I'm sure it took a lot of hard work. I was only priviledged to be there for the last 2 years, but am glad I am part of his story and he is part of mine. We are all in this together and working toward the same goal of staying sober for today. I can't worry about tomorrow or next year. I only have today, and I am going to work hard for today. I am blessed for what I do have, and only by the grace of God did I wake up today with another chance at today. So I am going to work with what I have, with the gifts God has given me and stay sober today, and help others today too, if I can. I will reach out, but always remember MY sobriety comes first, because without that I am nothing, I will end up right back where I was before. That's all I have for today! Have a great one!
