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?
Just happy you're back! Stay close, Stay the course, Stay with us!

Very excited about this milestone in my personal recovery.
Just THINK POSITIVE - DRAW POSITIVE.

You can do this. Think you may, think you can, think you did. Done Deal!!

Listen to YOU. do not listen to the Devil. Period. Can't wait to celebrate with you!

Absolutely. Drinking is not a viable option for me anymore. It's not on the table. That's never been the case for me before in 13 years of saying I want to stop. It's a very liberating feeling to know and truly believe I don't have to take that first drink today no matter what.

Thanks again Kris!

I think in all the hubbub I forgot to check in last night. So... hi!

In other news, the day job I took to make ends meet while my new business venture gains traction decided to give me a team. So, it looks like I'm a manager again. Funny how that happens. I guess it's fun to be an individual contributor for a while, but I really am happier when I have a staff, so this is good.
