The right thing

Sounds easy. How hard is it to do the next right thing? I mean, I know what’s right. Putting knowledge into action can’t be that difficult. When I was a drinking alcoholic I couldn’t be counted on. I made plans just to break them. I didn’t show up to places I said I would. Sometimes it was because I was too drunk. Sometimes it was because I couldn’t drink like I’d want to at that place. Sometimes I’d be too hungover. Whatever it was, I didn’t do what I said I would. The next right thing is NEVER getting shitfaced and talking trash. The next right thing is NEVER poisoning my body with enough alcohol and dry goods to kill a baby elephant. Until I got sober, I didn’t care about anything but my drinking. I thought I did, but when it came down to it nothing else mattered. Even doing the next right thing. Today I think I’ll show up for people. Happy Sunday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
