First, I'll be setting a reminder in Outlook for August 31, Overdose Awareness Day. I didn't know about this one until after the fact. Now, I have a year to think about a proper observance next year. Thanks, Eve, for putting that one up.
The first link takes you to a web site that wasn't around when I was trying to start getting sober. It looks like the fix is a good place to look around, especially the fix 411, which contains a host of resources to assist those trying to get sober, who are living sober, or who are just interested in addiction.
The other post is one that I really liked. The post wasn't intended as advice, but it contains a simple suggestion that I should contemplate every day, words that come from someone I recognize:
Here's your life. Do the work. Let it take you where it takes you. Just remain in my love.The story that surrounds this passage is not even close to the point of this particular exercise in blogging. Even so, these words encourage me on difficult days, on painful days, on days when I'm plotting my escape from all of this, whatever "this" may be.
