The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

and three days sober now. I see things a bit clearer now. same old crap, different story.
I checked in to CPC millwood in Arlington but quickly went thru what Ive been thru before in the 8+ times Ive been in rehab/hospitals.
I realized that I am the only person that can keep myself sober. no god or group can do that but me.
I can play the same game Ive played before or tread a new path. but a familiar one.
I was sober for almost three years recently and went thru depression for the first time in sobriety.
in the past I would always reach for drugs or alcohol to ease whatever pain I thought my soul was feeling.

I can't really say anything bad about AA/NA because I learned a lot about myself and life from those groups.

I also learned a lot about "spirituality" and the difference between that and "religion"

anyways. thanks to all for the well wishes.
I actually played some disc golf right after I left. and also today and disc golf can be a way of spiritual healing in it's own way.

Trudge on my fellow disc golfers. whether the path is far ahead and the journey is the most important part instead of the destination is not for me to say.

Hey dude, my heart goes out to you. This time last year was my last drunk!! My sobriety date is June 1st!!! My life has been so different as a sober human. I am learning how to live, like I've never known before! Seems to me like I was never really taught how to live a healthy life, between my two dysfunctional homes I was raised in, nobody was able to teach good coping skills, we didn't really have communication from the heart. So how was I to know how to when i had my own family...it's been a difficult process for me. But I'm out on top now, fighting this world we live in. I'm keeping sober, keeping positive, progressing with life on lifes terms! Don't know if you know about my club, Clean & Sober DG, but I started it for encouragement, and support for us disc golfers who decide they are interested in the subject. I was a wild fighting indian woman on the coarses when I was drinking. Now I'm pretty subdued, some people don't know how to approach me. It's such a better way for me, and I believe the other golfers like me being sober too. I get to find true friendships now, I don't live with the regrets I had, I love the sport, and the good charma that follows my better way of living. I encourage you to take care of you! To do the best thing you can for yourself, and for those that love you. You know you have to do it for yourself only, just keep the spiritual connection, and you will succeed!! Good luck, take care, and keep on discing!!!
