Congratulations on your article and finding the beginnings of Living a Life of Sobriety! Late in my seasoned Life, I too began my journey, which I am happy to say 48 months, which brought me to Sunrises. Early in my sobriety I wrote, “See me as I am, not as I was!” What I thought I was saying, is having others to see me differently. However, the truth be known, as I traveled my journey I realized, it was me who needed to “see me as I am, not as I was” each and every day simply by looking into a mirror! Enjoy!
