clement ci - day 209 attempting abstinence, 129 from self

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:"

mid-morning, lost focus, hard to concentrate and stay on plan, not efficient.

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)

Skype pa friends.
Felt a ton of pressure, felt like i was going to fail, but made best plan i could, and executed it, and wound up the pressure got released.
Enjoyed concert w/ family.
Handled parenting situation well.
Hard situation w/ weekend resolved. pretty good.
Two work phone calls happened, and they went well.

fall down seven times, get up eight - japanese proverb
