I frequently see people suffering and I have have to say “but for the grace of God there go I”. This year has been a tragic year for all. I found out yesterday that one of the people I went to treatment with died due to suicide this week. It was a total shock to all because he was one of this people who we thought had his shit together. From what i understand he was drinking and had a car accident, from which he left the scene. In a panicked moment of insanity he burned his home to the ground and shot himself.
Although this is a sad tragic story, it serves as a grim reminder of what could happen to any of us. How many moments of insanity have we had where an angel or higher power was there to pluck us away from death?
Sobriety has been so good to me. I just wanted to share this story as a reminder of what could be.
