Life's little coincidences
I am still good friends with my two college roommates although we live in different states and haven't been in the same room in years. This weekend I explained to them why I had quit drinking (i.e. about my alcoholism). Turns out that one of them is also an alcoholic as well. I knew she had quit drinking too and suspected perhaps she had her issues but she confirmed them when I outed myself. We all used to party quite a bit back in college; it seems strange that two of us have stopped and the third hardly drinks much at all.
They were both amazingly supportive. My friend did not get sober through AA, but she knows I am in the program and if she ever needs an introduction, she knows who to call.
Today I am grateful for:
More than ten months of hangover free mornings
For old and good friends
That I am going to be on vacation at the beach next week
That my father, who started dialysis today, did well with his first session
For hot June weather and a nice cool backyard pool
