Gratitude List. 5 things daily

I had this dream that I had starting drinking again. I had gone back into detox and everything. When I woke up I was so relieved. I started thinking of my gratitude list and thought I would share some. I try and do this in the morning when I wake up. Also when I am having trouble sleeping, it helps when I think of things I’m grateful for and just how things could be so different if I didnt put that shit down. Yall have a great Friday and be safe.

  1. I’m super grateful I dont have to wake up sick, having to drink or use to make it “normal.”
  2. I’m grateful for my family
    who helped my ass out.
  3. I’m grateful I have a roof over my head and food in the fridge.
  4. I am so grateful for my cat Inky. She really helps with her crazy antics.
  5. I’m grateful for my health. I’m not a picture perfect specimen but I’m still walking so I’m sure that can dance.
    Also I’m really thankful for this venue. I’m not a big meeting person but I do attend some stuff online. This forum really helps me along this journey.

@JackStraw I had the drinking dream last night too but I’m only on day 6. I guess it really never goes away.


I’m grateful someone else started another gratitude list. I’m grateful I do my gratitude list every day. I grateful how my gratitude list starts my day off. Grateful for this coffee. The beautiful snow cover trees and bright morning sunshine. It stopped snowing. My guy came late yesterday to shovel me out. My health. My wife and soul mate. My pets and grown up kids. And especially this app. And very grateful I’m not drinking and do not even have the desire to drink during this shit show.
Be smart stay healthy and keep your distance.

I’m grateful for…

  • My cat, Sophie, who has always been a comfort and constant
  • The random efforts of kindness I have been given
  • Hot showers, for helping me wash away the day
  • fresh air, for how it clarifies my mind
  • books, for offering me perspectives I otherwise would never had met

The upside is waking up and realizing it’s just a dream. I’m at 8 months and I have these dreams a couple times a month. Really dosent bother me…so far.

Even though I got a bit of a headache I am grateful for another sober morning. Grateful for the challenge of doing a gratitude list with a headache :face_with_head_bandage:. Grateful for my years of Al-Anon experiences since my wife is still drinking. Grateful for all that I have that I do not deserve. Grateful for God. Grateful for all the experiences during my children’s addictions. Did know I’d be using those experiences now. Grateful for my mission trip experiences. My parents RIP. My older sister RIP. My wife. My children. My sister.
Grateful I don’t know anyone out here in Flagstaff yet so social distancing won’t be a problem.

Grateful I don’t have a headache this am.
Grateful for another day sober. My coffee. The beautiful view out my window of the pine trees. Listening to my wind chime blowing in the wind. Warm dog on my lap. Quiet time with God. Learning to accept the things I cannot change. Friends and family I been reaching out to more frequently long distance with a check in text here and there. Grateful to be sober during all this serious Coronavirus horribleness.
