Being sober means that not only are there none of the physical harms like hang overs, but that there are none of the emotional harms like shame and guilt. Instead my favorite thing about being sober is that I can wake up to a brand new day. There are no left over emotions from yesterday. Because I am living like my higher power wanted me to in the first place, I tend to not say or do things that I will later regret. In fact, I tend to do things that are appreciated because I am here to help others. I don't have to be ashamed of things I do anymore. I have a fresh start, a brand new day. I can make amends when I need to. What a great idea!
