      The Infamous Tomorrow

      So here I sit. Friday night. Buzzed. Home. Bored.

      Can't drive. And, would be afraid that anywhere I showed up, I would be noticeably intoxicated. Why put myself in that situation?

      Ah! But, yet tomorrow.
      New life starting then.
      Tomorrow.

      By the grace of God.
      Tomorrow.

      Two hours and fifty minutes away.
      Tomorrow.

      So Friday turned into Saturday, which turned into Sunday
      Only to be awoken by Monday

      I waited and waited for tomorrow to come,
      But somehow it never did.

      My savior tomorrow,
      Has left me with nothing but today.

      I don't like today. Today is not a good day.
      I am chained to a bottle today.
      I can't do this today.

      I cry and I struggle, I fight and I curse
      What happened to tomorrow? Why am I left with today?

      And then from nowhere, Or maybe per chance somewhere;
      I get the answer.

      I have a hundred times more power today than tomorrow,
      A billion times more than yesterday

      Dig deep, dig deep
      And hold on to today

      Wow, such a powerful poem. Thank you for posting that.
      And yes, tomorrow may never come, so we only have today. Hold it, cherish it, and OWN it!

      "Bright" ... that was over 12 hours ago. She and I had had some contact a few months ago, so I just wanted to touch base with her.

      The Infamous Tomorrow

      I wrote part of the above March 1, 2013. I was on a bender the previous several days and it lasted a few more days. Each next day was honestly going to be a new start..

      Looking back. there are so many new beginnings I planned that never came to be. New Year's Eves, birthdays, moves, new jobs, break-ups make ups, etc...

      When I wrote the last part on March 4th and I knew I could no longer hang my hat on tomorrow.

      So I faced the day. Didn't drink M-F and felt great! Friday I was literally walking on air!

      Then yesterday, Saturday. Day 5 started with temptation from the start with friends enjoying Bloody Marys. By the end of the night I was in a bar throwing a few back. I had a hard time getting them down because the taste was so bad (yes, I see the insanity of this). Didn't really even get a buzz. I was looking around at the drunk people around me and ..I just felt over it.

      So today back on the wagon. And even though I really don't want to drink, the beast just reared it's ugly head and is trying to convince me that I do. So, I jumped on here to read, read, READ!

      Thanks for asking New Day! You are such an inspiration to me. I'm so proud of your accomplishment!

      Nursie, Almost Free, Boozer and Brightfield, big thanks to you all, too. I am on here reading all the time and you have all made posts that have really helped. Thanks again.
