Wednesday was 2 weeks sober. I looked at my sobriety date and realized that on the 24th I'll have a month of sobriety. So I decided that my Christmas present to myself and to God is going to be 1 month of sobriety. I want to enjoy Christmas with a month of sobriety. One day at a time, but that's my goal to work towards right now. I don't know how far away from the temple I am, so this helps me have something to work towards that I can see.


You got this one    
"Sista D,

So happy for you and a early Merry Christmas!!!

When I am asked what I want for Christmas,I just say "I already have what I want", but chocolate would be nice too....

It is amazing how much the Lord does, and obviously you opened tthe door to let him do his magic with you. Keep going...

You got it!!! It is noteasy, but it is so simple, huh?

Love you,

Not Easy but Simple    
"That is SO true. It is simple, it's just easier said than done. The nice thing is that just like it is easy to spiral downwards when we make bad choices, the good choices snowball and it gets easier."

Long Term Goals    
"Everything about goal setting says we break long-term goals into more easily do-able short-term goals.

I think that is an awesome Christmas present to wake up and realize that you have accomplished that step, that goal, and you're well on your way to the longer-term destination!

Go D!"
