I had that ah ah moment that I cant drink forever and I was ok with it and gained confidence that we could live rest of the life without this obsession ever come back.

Every day is a Day I have to ask for My Sobriety. Reminding myself that I don't own my Sobriety, I just get use of the Gift, if I ask.

Reminds me of yesterday's Daily Reflection reading:
March 12th ~ A DAY’S PLAN

On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 86

Every day I ask God to kindle within me the fire of His love, so that love, burning bright and clear, will illuminate my thinking and permit me to better do His will. Throughout the day, as I allow outside circumstances to dampen my spirits, I ask God to sear my consciousness with the awareness that I can start my day over any time I choose; a hundred times, if necessary.
