“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” CS Lewis
My sobriety date is September 29, 2012. I’ve been blogging throughout the journey of my recovery. I drank alcohol for many years in order to feel “normal.” I’m an anxious, neurotic, lazy, selfish, critical, pessimistic human being prone to long bouts of depression. My good qualities are usually overshadowed by my mind’s incessant message that “I’m not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, together enough…” but through recovery from alcoholism I’m starting to listen more, pay attention to the spiritual voice that says “You are love, light and a child of God. Your life is valuable and has purpose. ” Living a life of rigorous honesty is tough but the only way for me to live.
