Well it looks like another four years of Obama.  I just hope and pray that he is going to follow through, take drastic measures and do something major about increasing jobs and lowering the unemployment rate.   

Looks like Ill also be stepping out into a world where marijuana is now accepted in the eyes of the law.  Don’t get me wrong, I think it should have been legalized way before alcohol ever was but, my problem exists with marijuana at its core and it always leads to harsher, more powerful drugs.  There is no doubt or hesitation that I will make my recovery the number one priority in my life for the rest of my life, it’s just the thought of using marijuana legally and guilt free adds to the temptation, just like an alcoholic who fights the urge to stop at the bar for just one drink on the way home from a hard day’s work.  Like any successful recovering alcoholic, it gets easier with time so I thank God for giving me five years of sobriety and practice for the real world, but reality is that it will always be a conscious effort that’s taken one day at a time.
