I'm sitting here looking at my calendar to figure out when my six month anniversary of being clean will be. I'm doing this because when i have 6 months clean I can go back to my rehab program and lead a group. I can't wait to do this to share my knowledge with those who need it most. I know I'm still early in my recovery but this will help me as well. When I was in the program I made the comment that I can't wait to come back in 6 months...someone snapped on me and said that I should NEVER look that far into the future, that its one day at a time. This always bothered me so much. I totally agree with taking it one day at a time but I want to say that there is NOTHING wrong with looking forward to a clean future...in fact I think it's a really good thing. What's wrong with planning for a clean future? I've been told the same thing on this forum...that its bad to talk about anything that far in the future. If you have such a positive outlook on your sobriety and are feeling so positive you will make it...it is NEVER a bad thing. So I say...go ahead and look forward to your future...however far off you want...because it gives you something to look forward to and a goal to strive for. If your strong enough to make it to 20 days, 30 days and so forth, than you're strong enough to make it for life....it's all up to you. Have a great day everyone!
