You know the storm I mean don't you? The one that wages within each day and when you say, "Should I use/drink today or should I try to stop?" Yeah, that one. The big storm that takes over your life and puts you on that damned collision course with all those horrible consequences like the breakup of your relationship, not being there for your kids, losing another job and not being able to find a new on. It's hard to find another job because your work history looks like a big chunk of Swiss cheese except that you could drive a semi through some of the holes where you were missing and not in action.
The big storm that comes up quickly some days, and blows all your money into the wind just like it blew your friends and family away. Or have you noticed they aren't standing beside you any longer saying, "He just works too hard." "She is under a lot ofstress." "Their marriage is just in a rough patch right now so she/he goes out." Not even, "It's just a phase," from your earnest, ever-loving and co-dependent mother.
Today is a new day. It could be the start. It's a bright new dawn. You can change your life starting today. You could find shelter from that storm as easy as clicking your mouse.
