    6. Being sober is not punishment. It is a gift, to me, and to people who love me.
    7. The aches and pains I thought were from aging have disappeared. I run up stairs now.
    8. I don't wake up at 3am with anxiety and the feeling of sadness and dread.
    9. I have been able to be there for my friends through some difficult times
    10. I love the freedom from obsession and anxiety over when I can get a fix and the freedom from the compulsion to take the next drink and the next drink and the next drink and the next drink....
    11. (sorry if this is TMI.....but...) I love having normal poop! It means the bowels are healing and starting to work properly again!!!
    12. I appreciate life much more than I did. Instead of walking thru life just being an observer I am not afraid to try new things and participate. Life is not a spectator sport!
