Sobriety This Time ’round

I’ll have one year of sobriety this Thursday.  I’ve never succeeded at staying sober for this long.  It’s such a momentous occasion that my dad – the Marine whose motto is “Never leave a man behind”, the man who sent me to seven residential treatment centers over 11 years – is flying out to visit this Friday.

We haven’t seen one another in four and a half years.

1988!

1988!

This time – I don’t think it’s temporary.
