900 SoberDays!!!

Did I really think 900 days ago that I would still be sober now, to be honest I’m not sure.  At the time I said that’s it no more, but deep down, not just words, I mean my inner most feelings, beyond the determination I don’t honestly think I believed I would get this far.

It has not been an easy ride, it’s been tough at times and painful, both physically and mentally, but then again my life in the years up to that point 900 days ago, was not an easy ride either and the pain, both physical and mental was simply masked by the alcohol I was pouring down my neck each and every night.

I have so many people to thank for helping me get this far, too many to mention, I would just like to thank each and every person who has offered me support and encouragement along the way.

But there was no way I could have firstly took that step to break the habit and secondly keep doing it day after day, 900 days later, without the Grace of God.

From my first prayer for strength, just one week before I quit, that prayer is still answered every single day.

There are times I lose hope for other things in my life from time to time, just like yesterday, but my life is far better now than before.

I’ve wanted to use this song for some time, but I couldn’t find a YouTube video for it, so I made one.  Pocket Full of Rocks were one of those bands that I was listening to well before I was a Christian and started this Sober journey and this is one of my favourite songs of theirs.

WHO IS THIS KING by POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
Who is this King, 
Whose kingdom is forever?

Who is this God, 
Whose greatness knows no end?

He is the King, 
Who says I’ll leave you never

He is the God, 
Who call’s you friend

Who is this King, 
Whose kingdom is forever?

Who is this God, 
Whose greatness knows no end?

He is the King, 
Who says I’ll leave you never

He is the God, 
Who call’s you friend

We rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord
To You alone

We rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord
To You alone

Who is this King, 
Whose kingdom is forever?

Who is this God, 
Whose greatness knows no end?

He is the King, 
Who says I’ll leave you never

He is the God, 
Who call’s you friend

So, we rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord
To You alone

We rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord

To You and You alone, 
To You and You alone

So we rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord
To You alone

We rise up and call You
Beautiful, we lift up our voice, Lord

To You and You alone, 
To You and You alone

We rise up, we rise up
And call You beautiful

We lift up our voice, Lord
To You and You alone, 
To You and You alone

    Well done, Wayne, a remarkable accomplishment, I hope you truly are proud of yourself. I haven’t had alcohol for more than seven and a half years and I still struggle some days, but believe me, it does get easier and most days are a genuine joy. Please make sure you talk to someone when you’re down, stressed or suffering, communication and honesty is the key, pal. You CAN do it. 900 days is amazing, YOU are amazing, don’t forget it, best wishes from baldy.
