Hey everyone, just checking in here as I wrap up sober weekend #25 in a row. I've had my two slips mid-week and am determined to make it all stick.

I'm feeling really good mentally right now and this week was a bit though physically as the jet lag hit me a bit (odd that it was a few days after I got back). I also had to get a temporary crown put in a tooth this week (I knew I needed it before I left on the trip and glad I waited until I got back as it's just a bit sore and pretty sensitive to temperature, so wouldn't have been able to enjoy all the food.)

Anyway, gorgeous day here today and I'm going to the mets game tomorrow nights. Sober plans the next two weekends, which is also nice.

Ending day 94 here. Most of today was work-centered. I made good money and everything went smoothly, so that's nice. Spilled some margarita on my hand at one point--I used a whole lot of soap and hot water on that one as I didn't want that smell anywhere near me. My bosses asked me today if I had any interest in becoming a bartender there. I said thanks but no thanks. Bartending is not for me anymore. Though I was a damn good one when I wasn't drinking with the customers.

Hope everyone is doing well and had a happy and sober weekend! Talk to you later...

Hello everyone, and continued congratulations on your achievements.

I have spent a while checking in with my home class ( June 15 ) and posting around a bit in Newcomers, but didn't want to leave before saying hello here.

Thanks again for the warm welcome over the last couple of weeks or so. I love the energy in this thread. There is a feeling of 'wary accomplishment', we realise we are on to something good and worth fighting for.

My home thread is a little quiet so I'm going to sit in both places for a while. I actually though I was the last man standing for a while, but guess the 2 month mark is when we all start to take stock. It feels that way for me.


Day 65 for me here. Tons of good solid work to do today, but waiting for that creative energy to come. This is mildly annoying, but in the past I would have found an excuse to drink while waiting, Then slept through the time when it arrived . Yep, I'm not as smart as I used to think I was.

Casey - Ye shall tend no more bars. Dost thou harken me ? They can tend themselves. Thy worke is dunne.

Good for you Fradley! I sit in here and my class group too. I'm lucky with April 15. There are still 10 or more of us posting regularly. Feel free to come by any time and say hi

Hope you're all having a good day!

Fradley -- Class of May is just a slight bit less of a ghost town than June. Kinda bums me out a little but I can't control the actions of others, and I'm grateful that class was there for me in the early days when I needed it most and also glad there are other threads like this one and my old class of July 13 that are still going strong.

Day 95 here. Already got a lot accomplished today. Work tonight. Hope everyone is having a happy and sober start to the new week.

Hi undies.

Woke up in a bit of a funk thinking about my last relapse for some reason and how I was days away from a year. I thought to myself tho there's nothing I can do at this point to change what happened except keep moving forward so that it doesn't happen again.

Have a few errands to do today and might take tomorrow off and use some of my vacation hours. I haven't decided yet tho. And not sure if my boss will let me but I gotta run by womp so I might ask. We'll see.

Day 21 here! Just wanted to say "hey" and hope things keep going positive! I also like to be in several threads. I like to read and know that I am not alone and my feelings are justifiably correct, not to feel ashamed if I get angry or sad or happy and glad as I am trying to be more of these days! Thank you for all the posts..I may not thank every one of them cause that might be annoying beyond being a little creepy as well..Lol

Welcome, KeyofC, congrats on 21 days!

I read/post in 4 sets of threads because of different perspectives. It helps so much.

Hi Undies!

Just checking in....still sober! I try to keep up in here and some other threads, as well as Newcomer's forums. Before I know it, I've missed like 10 pages of posts in each one. I need a super-power!

Hugs to everyone, and be well.
