Adios, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen… Good Night


Adios, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen... Good Night

I’m an old guy. I remember the 1960s and 1970s. I grew up in them. Every week, my parents would watch the Lawrence Welk show. At the end of every show, a song was sung and ended with the words of this title that all said the same thing: so long until we meet again.

If my calculations are correct, this blog entry should be printed sometime between Christmas and New Year’s. My blog started last year between Christmas and New Year’s. So, if you have been with me from the beginning, I have shared the last year with you. During the time that I wrote my blog, my life was a whirlwind. 2018 was one of the most challenging yet productive years of my life. It was full of life, but there was illness. It had hard times. I buried a good friend. But through it all, I continued to write. That was the greatest blessing of all.

I have always been told that when something is bothering me, I am worried or afraid, I need to go and do something for somebody else. Regardless all the difficult things I was enduring, I asked God to help me write a series of things that will help other people. I simply just shared the things that I did and I do to achieve and maintain sobriety, serenity and spirituality. The responsibility of this blog ensured that I spent every day conducting such a search for truth and recovery.

I talked a lot about God. I hope I offended no one by doing so. But if I am going to tell you the story of my recovery or 12-step recovery principles in general, I have to talk about God or I can’t tell you about it. God is the major Principal in my story and most recovery stories.

I just wanted to thank all that have taken the time to read my blog. I hope that it helped you reading it as much as it helped me writing it. Perhaps we will meet again soon.

Adios, Au Revoir, Auf Wiedersehen...Good Night.

    I'm beyond thankful that I chose Rocky Mountain Treatment Center for inpatient treatment. It wasn't my first rodeo, but definitely my last. I learned about myself and left with the tools I need to live a sober happy life. I can now be the woman my family needs me to be. The staff is beyond amazing! Especially the ones that you see every day. They have all been where you are at, and openly share their stories and insight. I made friends there that I keep in contact with on a regular basis. The first treatment center I went to seemed sterile and hospital like. Rocky Mountain is small enough that you get lots of help to work on you! I am coming up on 5 months sober now. I know it is up to me, but I wouldn't be in this great place without them!

    Absolutely changed my life. This is not a facility that you go to to just quit drinking or drugging. The staff there cares deeply about every aspect of your life...therefore you leave there a changed person. I had to want to trust the process. But when I did, everything I needed prepared me for the the journey ahead as I walked out those doors to face an uncertain world. I didn't want to leave but I had all of the tools I needed. And....I had access to counselors afterwards through aftercare as well. I refer all those I come in contact that have a need to Rocky Mountain Treatment Center first. I am forever grateful to them.
  • Rocky Mountain saved my life. I was "terminally unique" when I came. I had a rationalization for all the craziness in my life caused by alcohol - the common theme being it was someone else's fault. The staff here get it - most of them are in recovery themselves. They were able to show me my "stinking thinking" and gave me the tools to live a meaningful sober life. I am eternally grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the whole Rocky Mountain team!
  • My name is Chris. After struggling with Alcoholism for over 30 years, the center opened my eyes to a new life. The counseling and care I received were excellent! The tools for a sober life that they taught me I will always use, “one day at a time.” I am writing this with a heart full of gratitude because the treatment center saved my life. I thank God every day for bringing me there. Always Grateful
  • Don't give up five minutes before the miracle happens. I was ready to give up. RMTC gave me back my life!
