I hate being sober. Period.

Feelings    
"Nothing more than feelings. Stay with it Cody. You can do it! Remember where your strength comes from. Your spirit is strong and desires a tabernacle that is free! Listen to your spirit not the flesh!"

I know that feeling    
"I've been there at times. Try and remember why you're sober and that true happiness comes from obedience. You can get past this feeling."

Acceptance    
"Went over this in AA today. Helped a lot. I can even accept what I hate...like sobriety. The concept seems to be a diffuser for me.

"Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today... I can find no serenity until accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is suppose to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake.""

"That's my favorite story in the big book. Dr. Paul also wrote a must read book, "There's more to quitting drinking than quitting drinking." He was awesome, rest his soul. Much of what is in that book got me through my first year sober. Keep up the good fight. "Acceptance IS the answer to all of my problems TODAY""

"In recent years, as I have sung the hymns of the Atonement, it has been with an especially full heart—and also with full voice, when I can continue to sing—lines such as “How great thou art,” “I scarce can take it in,” “To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,” “I stand all amazed,” and “Oh, it is wonderful!”"
