As beautifully written as often is the case and with the best possible heartfelt intentions in mind, I can still not embrace scripture and live my life as dogmatically as most holy texts demand and dictate.
I do believe that the sum of all temptations can be (if not controlled) remarkably constant.
I’m now on day 40 of my sobriety path and I feel a level of clarity that I can’t recall ever experiencing. At some point in my life, I’m sure I have felt this way, but it must have been such a long time ago that those memories have faded away.
However, where alcohol once prominently resided in my life, there is now a rather noticeable void.
