Day 21 - ACTION!

Posted 01-19-2019 at 10:27 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

3 weeks sober today!

The cravings at night are not as intense as the first week, but they are still here. I am well aware that I will have cravings for alcohol for the rest of my life. I will have good days, and there will be plenty of bad days ahead. I will always be an alcoholic, that part will never go away. I am wired to be an addict to the end of my life.

DAY 20 - 'Twisted Repeat'

Body Surfing

Posted 09-25-2014 at 12:23 PM by doureallycare2 (Journey of hope.)

Have you ever body surfed in the ocean when there was an impending storm? I did on vacation last week... And since I'm the daring water kind of person, I loved it! (I guess I'm just daring in general). My friends all went in to shore, just too wimpy I said...

Before long I found my self about a mile down beach. I was so busy having fun and enjoying the elements that I ignored the danger. I thought it was ok because there were a few other daring people out. Some windsurfing...
