Emotional Sobriety

In addition to going to AA meetings I have started working the ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) program.

Brutal. The program is not brutal but the truth of my life is.

It is time and I believe strongly my Higher Power has guided me to this place. This place of recovery, this stumbling block in my life.

Wish me luck.


And I got one of these ……..

Ahhh, that’s better.


So I have had about four days off since February. I’ve been away from home for over a month and I’m burned out.

I’ve added an ACoA meeting to my schedule of AA meetings. It is helping.


The bike! Yeah, how can I be a heavy metal guy without a bike? Craigslist is flooded with bikes right now and I had all that overtime burning a hole in my pocket. I love my bike. A 2005 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic with 2600 miles on it. It was a one owner bike who hardly ever rode it and kept it in a garage. My motorcycle license test is next week.

I should have bought one of these ten years ago.
