That is a beautiful song, thank you.

Hey guys! Checking in. 60 days today. Glad to see everyone is doing well. I have had more time than usual to burn considering I quit my job as a bartender at 2 weeks sober. Trying to stay busy out here in the forest. No television or cell phone service but I do have internet (obviously). I watched a great documentary last night on Amazon called "Bob and the Monster"..about how musician Bob Forrest got sober. Very inspiring..I am a music lover so it was right up my alley. I highly recommend it. I am also reading "The Art of Asking" by Amanda Palmer. Great so far. Thank you all for being here..Keep on keepin' on

Hey guys and gals. Back at work today. Good, productive day that went by quickly. I got to share quite a bit about the conference I attended. A few of my coworkers asked if I went out and partied with the group while I was there and my response was "nah," and their reaction was "why not!? You're young and should be going out!" It was kind of annoying. I've actually had a few people give me that response and it just bothers me. I want to respond and say that I went out night after night through college and grad school, and I've stayed out drinking until the bars close far too many times. It's not that fun! Oh well. Just had to vent here.

Hope everyone is well. And CeeFarro congratulations on 60 days!!

Hi. I was out all day. I guess 24 hours of sleep helps. Got my new trimmers for my bald head (was an effort before). Stopped at a specialty running store to look at some stuff for my foot issues and got a lot of good, free advice. Young woman there agreed that my calf is as tense as a piano wire. Simple cheap inserts and hard work to get going again. I called the physical therapist. I'll need a new prescription for them to do anything with me. So I need to call the doctor.

As per advice from here I decided to make sure I eat and hydrate. Whole Foods: Coconut water, regular water (my tap stinks), a steak, pork chop, sweet potatoes, peas. That steak was delicious. Going to drink a ton of water.

Got to the therapist. It was good. Made a list with him. Talked about a bunch of stuff but 45 minutes is not enough.

Tomorrow hopefully check off a couple things in the list.

Thanks friends.

Hi all. I'm doing good. I've been exhausted this week from stress at work. They were talking about layoffs then we get a massive amount of work. The large amount of work is a good thing but a couple of people want to be too bossy and I'm tired of the drama.

Congratulations on 60 days CeeFaro! Hope everyone is doing well.

Hi. Checking in. I don't think today is going to be like yesterday. I may have to settle for resting, getting nothing done on my list, and not drinking.

It's gets hard at this point. I think I'm going to try hard to avoid naps. I always wake feeling terrible. I'm not sure I can or should stay awake though. I don't want to drink. It's just lousy to feel this way. Anyway, it should get better. I know this feeling is what makes me frustrated, so I'm seeing it and ignoring.

Hi everybody..I did not have time to check in this morning, but all is well here. Spent the day outside and I am tuckered out. We are going to a pig roast this evening...taking my son so we won't be staying long. Early exits are a good thing these days. I will pack myself some cold iced tea in my purse, just in case the host forget about the non drinkers!

Hi all,
Hope you're getting ready for a great sober weekend, whatever you're up to. Johnny just hang in there it will get better. I had a feeling just earlier of "wouldn't it be nice, and maybe I could". I don't think so.

Amp - I downloaded a Mick Flannery album and so he accompanied me this morning on a recovery run. Nice way to start the day.

Best wishes

OMD

OMD, I thought, if you're a Tom Waits fan that Flannery would be right up your street. Happy listening!

Johnny, keep fighting the good fight! You can beat this. Just need to want to enough!

So ticked off right now. My friend that I always mention... I wish I could say the name on here. Seems odd. Anyway, she's always hanging out here, watching movies and such. She been a admiring my sweet potatoes and asked me to get her one if she could come over tonight. Then she added frozen yogurt, filch soy sauce packets out of Whole Foods salt/pepper/forks counter, tofu. Bill Maher will be on HBO tonight and we love that show. I was feeling crappy but went to browse the latest tech at Best Buy (funny that I know more than most of the people that work there). Anyway, got on the highway in heavy traffic, mistakenly drive miles past the grocery store towards home. Got off in traffic madness. Got back to Whole Foods, got her stuff in the cart, my phone rang... She made plans with her ___head casual BF. I was like WTF? Not happy at all. Was looking forward to hanging out. Put her stuff back. Gave her a lot of crap via messenger. Turned off phone.

Got myself coconut milk ice cream, mint chip. 2 large double chocolate cookies. Came home.

I think I would be out of here a lot faster if the one friend I have was just gone.

Ok more later. Food is cooking.
