Day 79

After the 60day mark, time starting moving faster. For that, I am grateful! Going to quit nicotine soon. Quit cigarettes a few weeks ago, but now I want to quit the e-cig as well. This might be really hard though...

Anyways, I'm not sure which part of the forum to post on, as I don't even know what I want to talk about most of the time.. Hmm

Anyway, I just wanted to say that it's good to see so many of us still posting and fighting the good fight. Joining the March 2015 class was definitely one of the best decisions I could've made in my fight for sobriety. Thank you Marchers. Not only for the fellowship and support but for sharing your struggles, your successes, your mishaps, everything! I hope that we can continue to support each other even as 2015 gives way to 2016, and beyond. Good luck guys and keep Marching!
50 Days is great! Keep going with that Spirit! I couldn't agree more with you about us Marchers! We are so supportive and nurturing. Thank you all for that. I remember last time I quit (for 4 months), I belonged to another group that I didn't feel was that supportive. this time I couldn't have asked for a better class!

Thanks everyone for the messages--I really appreciate them!--and I apologize for not fully responding to each of them. I have been offline with chores and work catch-up. I need to remember that "doing nothing" is actually doing something, that is, preventing overload meltdowns is something worth doing.

Went to Happy Hour tonight...

Hello everyone. Went out with some co-workers tonite and had a nice time, but did not drink alcohol, although I was offered it a few times. Had a good time and didn't feel any cravings while I was there.
Was proud of myself for not drinking--it would have been easy to rationalize it and say 'it's just one', but I didn't do that

Up to Day 96--100 is right around the corner. Hope everyone is staying strong.

That is a wonderful thing! Being able to not only be around others drinking but to outright refuse offered alcohol. I am hoping that one day I will be that strong in my sobriety as well. Way to go Bobcat!

Well fellow Marchers I've made it to day 54. Feeling really good today. Got the movers here packing up my stuff. I just realized that the day we drive out of here is also my 60th day of sobriety. How cool is that?!? I hope everyone else is having a blessed Saturday. You guys rock!

I've observed this too. Feels good.
I'm actively trying to s.l.o.w. time and be more present in the moment.
Mindfulness is one of the ways I'm trying to connect more with my inner self and challenge the negative self talk.

Hope my fellow marchers have an amazing day.

Hmm... what is s.l.o.w.? This sounds like something that could be very useful.

Thanks secretary. It's been a hard fight to get this far but it's been worth it. It seems like AV has less to say these days. Not that there's no chatter but, it's much more manageable.

Just checking in. You marchers are great. I joined the may group a few days ago. I indulged on a bottle of wine 2 weeks ago, so Im on day 11.

Divorce is in the process. Living with my daughter at the time. Oh well, I feel okay, it is what it is.

Talking to a counselor. He is in his early 80's. Spend the first few minutes analysing him. The worst thing I need now is a confused psychotherapist.

Keep marching on and i will check in every once in while.
