Another year has passed....... I spent the morning sitting outside, enjoying the cool air and quiet sounds of the neighborhood. I am looking forward to 2008, and started thinking about my new goals.

I looked at the goals I had for 2007 and only achieved a portion of them. I still have my ex, NVF in the past. Unfortunately, I have taken her out quite frequently to examine the extend that I was fooled. I am completely amazed at what a sucker I was. On the brighter side, I have finally reached the point where I want to date again. I am actually excited about the prospect.

My dancing partner is in the past. She is still around, but I don't communicate with her at all. It is sad, but she has her own path to follow, and I don't want to be on it.

My house is still not complete. The fires of southern California put a halt to any construction. My fire victims are still camped out in the living room with all their animals. It is really hard to get anything accomplished right now.

On the brighter side, I did start learning sabre fencing, and faceting in 2007. I was able to enjoy some mushroom hunting, and explore my passion for figs, and sculpture.

My goals for 2008 are much of the same. To live a clean and sober lifestyle, and enjoy exploring this wonderful world. I would like to get more focused creatively, finish my house, train my puppies, and of course, search for that "woman of my dreams".

Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comments. What are your goals for 08?

Good goals, although ...
the woman of your dreams will find you. She's not available for you to find.

(I KNOW YOU'VE HEARD THAT BEFORE, BUT THOUGHT I'D MENTION IT)

Often we find that perfect someone when we least expect to, and when we're not even looking.

It's always a good choice to NOT stay on the same path with an ex, no matter how much we think we still care.

That's part of why they're exes.

Best.

Happy New Year, Sober.

Goals...to stay the course--to continue working towards helping my daughter get out on her own, helping my mother navigate her medical & emotional issues, supporting my son's theatrical pursuits and getting even closer to my lady love.

And having fun.

Happy 08 Sundown!
Goals -- to stay clean one day at a time; to strengthen my relationship with my G-d; to write more; and to go back to work sometimes this year.
I think that's it.....
Your new doggy is adorable. And, I cant handle too much barking at once either. It goes right to the center of my head.
Love!

Hey Sundown,

Hope 2008 brings you much desired continued sobriety and peace.

Do you still have people camping out in the living room???

Thanks for your post, and your blog. There are a number of different treatment programs and approaches to support people suffering from substance abuse disorders who decide to get help. I’ve found Silver Hill Hospital's website to be very informative about adult and adolescent residential programs. Blogging about substance abuse is a great way to help yourself and others. Keep up the good work.

Understanding how you’ll get help can be very difficult. Finding a center for addiction treatment can be one way that you’ll get sober again.

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed dual diagnosis rehabilitation when I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.

Don’t let addiction take over your life. You can go to different eating disorders to get the help you need. Look for ones in your area that are caring and compassionate.

Thanks for the info. Dealing with addiction can be hard and you should have an intervention for people you love when they need the extra help.
