Not everything can be done with will power and self-discipline. This is very hard for people like me to accept because I can do so much with self-discipline and will power. I do this blog everyday. I exercise and eat properly. I can walk away from sweets and glutin. I can look at chocolate but not eat it. I meditate and attend to friends, spiritual path and otherwise. But I cannot do sobriety with my will power and self-discipline. Know thyself! Everyday I have to accept this, be grateful, and take action so that I don't get onto the lonely road of "being dry." If you have something that you cannot do alone with your own will power, you are not a bad person. You are human. Accept limits and then connect with others to help you. If I am honest, like in my blogs, and with friends and helpmates, I enjoy good and sober days. And on not so good days, I still enjoy the sober part. This means that no days are all bad!
