Hey there. I haven’t posted in a long, long time. Life, work, family just got in the way.
Quick update. Things are going well. Still sober and very much active in AA/recovery. Still haven’t got my head around the AA dogma, nor do I think I will ever really. Heading to my favorite speaker discussion meeting tonight actually. Love to get the shit off my chest!
I won that week long trial I had during the summer. Yes! I also received a very prestigious honor for legal writing. I cannot divulge what it is because I would jeopardize my anonymity.
This year is shaping up to be my best year ever for my law practice. Double yes! Funny how productive one can be clean and sober…
I had a bad bout of pneumonia back in October and I’m still coughing up crud. Not fun! (Flip side is that when you’re that sick, you have no desire to drink alcohol!).
I need to get back to working out and lose some weight. (Don’t we all…).
My family and I have had a great Fall and early winter season doing lots of fun activities.
I will leave you with this article I came across today. A Lawyer’s Life Cut Short on the AmLaw Daily about Ryan Farley who died of alcoholism at the young age of 39.
A must read for any attorney struggling with addiction. Poor guy….
Take care, Dick
