sHOW UP (DONE), EXER, PLAN.

I seem to be dealing with "emotional hangover" almost dailily and was led back to Step 10 in 12&12.

"When a drunk has a terrific hangover because he drank

heavily yesterday, he cannot live well today. But there is
another kind of hangover which we all experience whether
we are drinking or not. That is the emotional hangover, the
direct result of yesterday’s and sometimes today’s excesses
of negative emotion—anger, fear, jealousy, and the like. If
we would live serenely today and tomorrow, we certainly need to eliminate these hangovers. It requiresan admission and correction of errors now
In all these situations we need self-restraint, honest
analysis of what is involved, a willingness to admit when
the fault is ours, and an equal willingness to forgive when
the fault is elsewhere. We need not be discouraged when we
fall into the error of our old ways, for these disciplines are
not easy. We shall look for progress, not for perfection.
Our first objective will be the development of self-re-
straint. This carries a top priority rating. When we speak
or act hastily or rashly, the ability to be fair-minded and
tolerant evaporates on the spot."

Blue-eyes Tuesday

It's noon and I'm dragging my feet! Wish I could just crawl into bed. So here's my check-in, to try to make something of the rest of the day.

1. Walk dog and lunch/read CV. 45 min.

2. Go to store - 45 min.

3. lesson plan - 30 min. 

4. Call M. - 30 min.

Get moving! There is HOPE!!

9:30 pm: 3 outta 4 ain't bad! A little procrastination but mostly I just ran out of time. Focus on the positive!!

clement ci - day 185 attempting abstinence, 105 from self

I have Hope in God.

Abstinence from unplanned time.

  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"

Proper attitude regarding day-count success. No ego. Lord keep me from ego. Let my list of counts say only one thing: what you have done in my life.

12:15am :
THINGS I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER

Not get so down just cuz ppl dont believe in me. All i need is God to focus on, to know he loves me.
Not forgotten about the disk power switch.
Checked my email for the dl instead of wasting time calling.

THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR (everything i "did well" comes from god, either thru gifts he's given me or the way he's transformed me)

Even tho it was pretty horrible having to accept that ppl dont believe in me, God had prepared me thru prayer so i had a shred of strength left. He focused me on His magnificent nature, and so less on myself. He reminded me of Edmund in The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe (Book 1 : Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis)
Much less wasted time this morning.
Faced very busy day with bravery.
Was on time early! for all appts.
Did not have let down after 3 appts 1240-740 totaling 7 hours
I worked very hard at client's for 3.5hrs.
I had a really good, on-plan day. And I know that it is god's transforming work in my life. I give him all the credit.
