On a cold November night in the mid-1990s, after a 20 year run as a self absorbed alcoholic and drug addict, I was blessed with the gift of desperation.
On this night, I staggered back to my out of beer and high on cocaine, about to make an alcohol run, disgusted again with myself and what my life had become. On this night, before getting in my , I paused and stared into the heavens. It was a clear night and the stars shown with brilliance I still remember to this day.
“God help me,” was all I could think of.
Within 60 days a series of events had changed my life forever. While I did not know it that cold November night, I was on a path to sobriety. While I did not know it at the time, I was about to start a journey of discovery. While I did not know it at the time, I was on a path to God.
Join me on my journey. Teach me along the way. Invite others to join us. Together we can learn from each other. Together we can better understand God’s will as we struggle to trudge the path of sobriety, one day at a time.
