When ‘Better’ Becomes Normal
To misquote Woody Allen, “Sobriety is like sex: When it’s good, it’s really really good, and when it’s bad.. it’s still pretty damn good.”*
My life is immeasurably better now that i’m sober than it was eight months ago. There’s only one small problem with this and that’s the improvement is so regular it’s becoming routine. Complacency is a risk, because complacency leads to a relapse.
When ‘better’ has become normal, where do you go for ‘good’?
Easy, a meeting.
*The original quote goes, “Sex is a lot like pizza: When it’s good, it’s really really good and when it’s bad…it’s still pretty good.”
