"How long you been sober?" Howard asked me.
"Today and a bunch days before that," I said. He stared at me. "Okay, almost twenty-eight years."
"That's so many days. When I hear 'one day at a time' I cringe. My days haven't been a picnic since I got sober."
"Not all days will be like today," I said. "Days will mostly likely get better. Because you're not numb, a few days will be more painful, but you'll get better. Rather than think about a long line of days like today, change the slogan to 'each unique day at a time.'"
I will live each unique day one day at a time.
