A Simple Plan for Beginners

Posted 01-24-2018 at 09:57 AM by Nonsensical (Nonsocial Drinker)

In the forums I have posted my version of a simple plan as a suggestion many times, and I probably will again. I wanted to also make a blog post about it because I can explain it in greater detail in a blog post. Forum posts are for quick responses. It wouldn't be appropriate to make a long response in a forum post. But, if you're here reading blog posts, it might be because you actually want a more detailed explanation.

We frequently talk on the forums about making a recovery plan....

Day 34 - Finally home!

Posted 04-19-2017 at 12:56 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

So exhausted, just landed and it's almost midnight. My 12 year old daughter is sick, so it's a challenge getting her to the car right now.

I will have so much to write about tomorrow, though, and will update on the latest. For now, I'm home and sober!

Day 12 - Pride

Posted 03-27-2017 at 10:31 PM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

I like myself. I love myself. I can look in the mirror at myself and not feel ashamed. I can carry on conversations with people throughout the day, like I have nothing to hide. I am not jealous of other women my age that do not have a drinking problem. I feel good about what I have accomplished these past 12 days. I feel proud. I can carry on. I can love my family whole heartedly. I can make my own decision not to drink today, wine has no control over me. I am in control over my own actions....

Day Four - Good Times

I like to use the term "Good Times" a lot because it was my father's last words to me. What an incredible man.

Yesterday I prayed to God, please I need the sun, I need it so badly to pull me through this haze and depression.

Today was pretty great! I woke up close to 7:00 am on a Sunday morning. Um, that hasn't happened voluntarily in a very, very long time. I got up with a burst of energy, and what - no hangover? It's such a significant different kind...
