#00220: June 19 2017 – 9/39

If you look closely at the photo, you can see the price tag. £3.50. I bought this notebook on Thursday April 2 2009. I was in my 4th month of sobriety. 

At that time, I was struggling; resisting a strong urge to get high on anything. So I bought the book you see above and I started writing. The rest is history. 

June 19th carries a special meaning to me. On June 19th 2009, it was a Friday, I was 6 months sober and clean, and before the night ended I fell off the wagon. That’s the longest period I’ve ever been sober. 

The book you see in the photo – although written by me – is filled with words I was trying to enforce on myself. I was, and still am, very tough on myself. 

Memories.

As Nietzsche famously said, “when you’ve worked out, blogged, and ate better for 9 straight days, you’re only one day from double digits.
