I have begun my journey back north. I am currently in Virginia at my mother’s, I will be here until Sunday. She is a heavy drinker, and a serious trigger for me.
Day 1 is done. (well really only about 5 hours, then I went to bed, so I guess that doesn’t count.)
My sponsor told me to keep my side of the street clean. That is my goal while I am here. Off to have coffee and practice being a better person. I am trying to remove those buttons she so readily pushes.
I listened to this AA speaker on my way here, he is fantastic. Get a pen and paper, he is the King on the acronym.
These are two I caught while trying to drive:
SPONSOR: Sober Person Offering Newcomers Suggestions on Recovery
ANONYMOUS: Actions Not Our Names Yield Maintenance of Unity and Service
I hope you enjoy him as much as I did, and if you get any of the acronyms, please share.
