I love this poem, The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost. Here it is in its entirety if you want to read or re-read it.
It reminds me so much of sobriety. Today I am so thankful that I took the road less traveled by and stopped drinking alcohol. That is what we are doing when we get sober- making a choice that everyone doesn’t have the chance to make. For whatever reason, we were given a choice. Everyone HAS a choice, but some people are never able to truly move past denial into recovery. That thought keeps me humble, as well as really grateful for what I have going on in my life right now.
