Well today marks 12 months of sobriety for me. This has been a turbulent journey. I've lost my relationship to sobriety. It has been a time of immense change. I'm beginning to accept that if my partner had been committed to helping me or joining me on this road to recovery, he would be here today to celebrate with me. He has chosen another life. Today I am sad about being alone but realise that this has been a solo journey and I will celebrate solo. I will love myself a little more today, perhaps some flowers and a hot bath and a nice home cooked meal. I will remember today and make it special for me. After all its about ME, it always has been. Love and best wishes to you all that are on this journey.
