June 3rd

I am fine now.

I am good now.

And if I am not completely fine and good now, I will be.

This crisis will pass.

There will be more crises in the future and they will pass as well.

I need to look at myself first and foremost.

Look at my behavior and my needs.

And if I don’t like what I see — I can work on changing it.

No one told me it will be easy.

Not drinking is only the first step.

First, but fundamental step on which I can build myself.

I feel good today.

I fell fine today.

Tomorrow is another day when I can improve something about myself.

When I can do something that will give a pleasure.

When I can do something creative.

Or useful.

Or be useful for others.

Or I won’t do anything interesting tomorrow — and that will be ok too.

It is my choice, and every day I have that choice.

And finally — it is my choice.

Alcohol doesn’t control me anymore.

Finally, I can see and feel what is real me.

And I am fine and good today.
