Thanks for the good advice on throwing out the vodka....of course that is the thing to do, but there are other people to consider. Anyway, if I wanted to make it simple I could take Antabuse!!!
Last night was fine apart from lack of sleep, but that will come soon I hope.
Good luck to everyone, and again, many thanks.

Thanks everybody for the celebration and support. Woo Hoo ksplash, we are moving right along here. Ain't it grand?

allport - So glad you got some sleep. That is awesome. Feels so much better to feel rested. Yes, you are doing the right thing and it ain't easy
at all sometimes.

IMT - Three days is good. Hang on for the bumpy ride at times. It gets
better. You can do this.

Sibbell - Its good to see you posting today.

Shanman and Paddington - Let's all keep this recovery stuff up. It is really hard still, I know but I think we are doing the absolute right thing for ourselves.

Least - You are an incredible human being.

Well done Sibbell, Allport, Itsmytime, and everyone in this thread!



Thanks Mtnmagic, I'm certainly going to keep working hard at my recovery. My goal is to try to be like the Duracell Bunny, who doesn't stop and just keeps on going! Your 30 days are a real inspiration to me - way to go!

rullzy - Welcome! Day 1 sucks! Good news is you don't ever have to be here again. Not ever. But for now take it one second, one minute, one hour at a time. The only way through it is through it. Keep posting, take good care of yourself. There are some really good sticky's on this site about withdrawals. (I'd post them for you, but I don't know how to insert links).
Hopefully someone who is more computer saavy will come along and do it.

Looking forward to getting to know you better. It will be ok. It really will.

Mtnmagic, thanx for the kind words but truly I'm just giving to others what has been and still is being given to me! In order to keep it, I have to give it away!

Thirty days seems like such a huge achievement, i was there a long time ago but i cant remember what it was like or even what i was like we all change so much. Anyway im amazed at what u have done u r both inspirations. Even though im only on day 6 and there is a long way to go to two weeks I dont think i want to graduate from this thread, I love reading about everyones struggles, I wish you didnt have to struggle so much but it makes me feel normal for about the first time in my life. Any way I should get on with day 6 and keep climbing that mountain one step at a time. x

good morning thread somewhere out in twisting turning wires and airwaves in, on, and around the earth


day 31 for me and i'm starting out with a decent attitude, although I forgot to bring my wallet today, which means i forgot my badge for work, which means i can't stay here, online, as long as i wanted. forgetting my wallet and badge is enough to change the course of my day for the worse....

well i'm up for the challenge. I will stay in today...and remain focused upon my one and only goal today: to live and stay colean during this 24 hour period. Just for Today, and during the block of this day I will live in the moment, the journey, of my life as best I can and do the next right thing

Let's go sober people....rah rah rah

we can do it

thank god for this site, i am only now on day 4, i have signed up with signpost, but they have spent the last 3 months, trying to assess me, coudln't take the waiting anymore, so just stopped drinking by myself last sunday.
Feel like sh*te, covered in spots, sweating, cant sleep, anxious, grumpy, you know where i'm coming from.


but...............

it feels good, my wife and kids love it, and i'll take it one day at at time, but any feedback my way (i'll do the same) will help...cos i am so weak, saying that i packed up fags 12 years ago...

Hi everyone

Welcome rullzy613 and littlebigman!

Way to go allport on day6!

Hi steamvessel - I remember you were really encouraging to me when I came to SR first time around back in the spring. I was going through a tough time - I was stuck in a cycle of a few days sober followed by several days of relapse - and I remember your encouragement at that time. Thank you!

PB

Welcome littlebigman. Days 3 and 4 seem to be really tough for a lot of us
here. Hang on your almost there. Physically you might start feeling a little bit
better really soon. Just don't pick up, because it will send you all the way back to where you started from, or even worse! The only way through it is through it. Good news is there are great people here to encourage and support you all the way.

steamvessel - Congratulations on day 5. Good for you!

allport - Day 7 for you today, right. I loved what you said about relating
to all of our early struggles here. It helps so much to know we aren't
alone. It feels great to fit in somewhere doesn't it. You most surely fit in.

Hey ksplash - Have a good day. Sorry you left your wallet at home. I find myself forgetful a bunch these days. I just shake my head and wonder if I'm ever going to get my brain back at times.

Rullzy - Thinking about you. How are you doing today?

Hey PD and Shanman - hope your day goes well!

just got back from my second aa meeting and i thought i do a quick post before i go to bed. Reading these forums has led to me being able to look at the aa meetings in a different way, i now realise that the problem last time i went wasnt the meetings it was me. I was so judgemental and defensive that I didnt let any one get close to me.Tonights meeting was about acceptance which Im sure everyone can relate to. I dont think ill ever come to believe but im willing to give and take support wherever its offered. I hope these positive feelings last but I know they wont so instead I hope I have the strength and support to deal with whatever turns up. x
