My problems of today are beyond my dreams of yesterday

A SoberTool User told me the following: "I live in a house with my wife. My problems are figuring out how to pay the electric bill and the cable bill. But six months ago I was living with my parents... And when I was a practicing alcoholic and addict? Then, I was lucky to be living under a roof at all. I had no prospect of doing anything. I could only imagine living in a house with my parents let alone a woman who loves me."

My problems today are only problems, not trouble. My problems today are truly beyond what I could even imagine yesterday.


If you are frustrated, sad or overwhelmed, do a quick comparison of where you were when you were using and where you are now. You might just end up being grateful for the problems you have now.
