Reasons for fighting


#584
  1. If I want love in my home I’ve gotta love myself. That’s hard while I’m still dealing with this.

  2. I’ll be freer to think about what I like to, and dress how I want without worrying about negative associations.

  3. It’s time to rest my poor wrists. Not do stupid stuff.

I’m fighting to fulfill my dream of getting a PhD and becoming a carnivore biologist.

I’m fighting because I am young and have my whole life ahead of me. It will not be ruined by some worthless poison.

I’m fighting because my family loves me and I need to be here for them.

Hi, my name is Susie, and I have been sober for a little over 11 years. I don’t have a sponsor right now, but I am still working my program, and staying sober One Day at a Time. I don’t have any friends outside of church or work or AA meetings, and today I’m wishing I did. I work full-time, go to church a few times a week, and go to AA meetings once or twice a week. Does anyone want to bemy online sponsor? I am online a few times a day, before I go to work at night.
