    Actually, I think it is my increasing disconnect that leads to a wider less attached view.

    I feel more and more disconnected and prefer to be.

    I agree, that we cause our own problems and I am the only thing I can change.

    We must accept all that we cannot change.

    So I watch from my garden and it all looks just so strange. So many people going 90 miles an hour, looking at their shoes, headed for a wall.

    Fussing and fretting and fighting about the most meaningless or imaginary things.

    Living among these “humans” is trying and tiring.

    Reflecting on how I am dealing with it and watching that I do deal with it correctly and properly made me realize it can just be so strange. It’s a damn asylum.

    '85 would have been a good year for me to stop. But, no.

    Congratulations on 33 years, dcm.
    In '85, while you were stopping, I was just getting started.

    24 years ago I drank my last bear & broke my last crack pipe. Life is good. I visited my original sponsor last night. Tonight I'm going to my home group and diner afterwords. Life is great.
    Good for you brother.

    2-10-91 Celebrated 28 years yesterday with family and friends and spent a couple of hours alone remembering what my life was like, what happened and what my life is like today. My gratitude cup is overflowing.

    January 28 in Daily Reflections - from the Big Book page 124 - " Cling to the thought that, in God's hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have - the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them."

    Everyday is a struggle. Every sober day is a victory over that, and many other struggles. Congratulations to all who go to sleep each night victorious.

    Congratulations on the sobriety www.records Thats HUGE. I'm proud of everyone here for sharing their clean/sober time & positive comments from everyone. One of the key things that helped me was remembering the pain. The monster only wants you to remember the fun. Since my last post we have lost members to suicide. Members have lost young children to heroin. The blessed carry on. Fever
