Glad you came right back, mets. We are here for you.

Not going to lie: I f^&*^ed up. Hard. There's been a snafu with my job for next year, which means there's a chance I may not have one at all, or I may have something entirely different from what I signed up for. And I'm supposed to move in this Saturday, to start work on Monday... So I lost it, because don't addictive substances make fear easier to handle?

In case any of you were wondering, the answer is no. Quite definitely: no. So I'm back. And trying to return to the good side of life. But oh man, do I feel weak and wimbly these days. Not sure I can promise 24, but I'll promise right now and the next 4ish, how's that sound?

Hang Tough JD. Stay the course. You don't want to have to keep starting over. The cravings will get you everytime.

Congrats ardy!

I'm in for 24 more hours please.

Assuming I make it this 24 (and I will if I just keep doing today what I've been doing daily for the past 2+ months) I will wake up tomorrow morning with 70 days, which will be my new personal best # of continuous days sober since I took my first drink back in 1999. Very excited about this milestone in my personal recovery.
