Morning all! Nice new thread to kick off what promises to be a testing day of work. I'll take it as a good sign

Ha, so I have to redo the list.
  • amp
  • Angie
  • CanGuy
  • Cauliflower
  • CeeFarro
  • InControl
  • Lily
  • martina
  • OMD
  • SwimKim
  • tokidoki
  • YazzyLove
  • me - ZaB

If I have missed anyone, I can only blame it on old age and memory loss.

Cheers,

ZAB

Hi all

Thanks Dee for the new thread...somehow when I clicked on 'new thread' I ended up on Nef's rose page? I have no idea how that happened but glad I seemed to have found it back to here.

I also have no idea what this good news that tokidoki says I have? I am mystified....maybe I have a twin on here? Oh dear....!!!!

Thanks OMD and ZaB for compiling the class list...

Not much for me to report today...hope everyone has a good day

ps I just came across this...I can't believe I haven't seen it before.

Its all about creating a Wellness Toolbox with sections to address triggers and cope with them successfully.

Hope it helps....

Hello Guys,

Well, frickey-frack again.

I'm sorry martina. I saw a post by someone with a similar name and jumped to conclusions. Here I am trying to make a good impression on y'all, and ...
Yup, ol' Toki here is *flighty* (to put it kindly).

Off to the airport today so ex-husband can fly back across the ocean to his home.

What are you all doing?

So far I'm sweating and grumpy from nicotine WD. Trying not to be too bitchy around people today.

Wednesday's are supposed to be my "red tape" day. Mostly paper pushing, setting appointments, goal setting and such. Today I have a sales appointment I'm gonna run then tonight I'll be door knocking people I couldn't get in the phone.

Might not be the best idea to try and do sales on day 2 of no nic. But I've gotta make a living.

Ready to start another 50 days and 500 posts!

It's gorgeous day here, i was just outside enjoying my coffee with the birds and sunshine. Martina that link is not working for me, but is that about developing your plan? follow this link, and scroll down to Dee's post near the bottom, the same link is there as well: http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...at-we-did.html

It's a good tool to have and to revisit often. It really helps me.

I just got the most devistating news this morning, literally just seconds after I posted on the newcomers about my formal plan. A very close friend, whom I consider a brother, died. It's so sad, and I'm all by myself, I'm just waiting for my husband to come home. The world works in mysterious ways, because my post just may trump drinking, so to speak. As sad as I am, I know that I cannot be drinking, I have to be strong for the family, especially for my husband. This man has been his friend since grade school, and now he is gone. I found myself thinking that I don't care and if the opportunity to get drunk with grieving friends, to have a happy party comes up I will join right in....but I won't. I have to add this to my formal plan, and keep moving. Its a heartbreak kind of day.

Very sorry for your loss Cauliflour. Well done for deciding to stay strong. You can dedicate your strength in this difficult time to his memory.

Well done on not smoking! That's a great choice you are making!

Enjoy surfing any urges you get, because you are truly doing a tremendous thing.

Cauliflower! How awful. There are no words. In the last two years I have lost 3 people very close to me. The last was 3 weeks ago when i was just a month sober. I felt like giving in and when the sherry came out (thankfully not my drink of choice) the only way I could avoid giving in was to think that I was doing it for him. That's how I kept it going. Dedicating the act to the one we'd lost.

I wish you well. Lean on us here these days.

Cauliflower I am so sorry to hear this....just take it one baby step at a time. Hoping your husband is now with you and you have some company?

Keep posting and let us know how you get on...
Thinking of you
