KeyofC, we're more than happy to have you here, but just so you know this is the Class of July 2013. Class of July 2015 is here:

http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...-part-6-a.html

Like I said though, feel free to hang with us too. The more the merrier and there are some great folks in this class with all different lengths of sobriety who will be more than happy to meet and help you.

Congrats on 23 days! 23 has always been one of my favorite numbers for some weird reason. In fact, it's one of the numbers I play in the lottery for fun every week.

Hi, Amy! I recognize you from the "Undies" thread.

You might have intended to join the July 2015 thread. We are July 2013--but you are welcome to stay! My sobriety date is later than July 2013, and they didn't throw me out!

Snooz....when we fall it feels so lonely and dark. But every day I know we all think of and worry for those of us who are struggling with either sobriety or life. I was walking up the street yesterday, hating on Rod for upsetting our dear Leshar and think of you and others too,

We really aren't alone in this fight, but as Dee says, reach out and get the right help now.xx

Ladybug, your girls will not know or remember you didn't sort your packing out. What they will remember is you being happy.xx My daughter said something lovely to me the other day when she saw a stressed out Mum with little kids. She said it made her really stop and think that she was grateful I was never like that when they were little. To date, I never heard her say, why didn't you unpack those boxes when we moved when I was 6 months old for 2 years? Hehe.xx (true story, it was 2 years)

Welcome, Amy!

Dear Croissant,
Thank you kindly for your support. I just wish Rod had broken up with me honestly, instead of this silly nonsense. I'm trying to be kind, and just accept that it wouldn't have worked anyway as he has too many "issues" or whatever, to deal with.

Dear Snoozy, please see your doctor if you have not already done so. You are in my prayers.

Hello to my favorite class.
It's going to be a nice clear night here soon. I'm might even get a glimpse of the Perseid meteors.
Perseid Meteor Shower in 2015

A little story.
You know back in 2007 I quit alcohol for 14 months after finding out my blood pressure and pre-diabetes was really bad.
Do you know why I started drinking again?
My doctor told me I was in great shape and "healthy".
My brain said"hear that Bob, time to have fun again."
It wasn't until 2013 that I was able to string together more time than a few months.
Crazy huh?

Not crazy at all Bob.
I totally get it. Xx

Good new Dee , I got up , showered & rang my doc. He's not in today , he's at a funeral, but it's ok . I'm not going back to bed.
I'm going to take the dogs for a walk even though it's raining.
I've got to start feeling again.

I'm pretty positive today , hoping to stay strong .
Thanks for all your kind words and help , it means so much to me xxx
love you all

Wendy

Oh my goodness this group has been so active, how can I NOT post?? I read up on your guys from time to time, but I have to be honest, I stop short of posting because it just reminds me of yet another time that I failed. But the truth is that this group always felt like "home" to me and even though I am on day 4 and not celebrating 2 years, I'd love to reconnect with all of you.

Snoozy, I'm rooting for you every step of the way... Hugs to you.

I'm off to bed, hope it's ok that I join back in ))

Bob, mate, that story of yours was my last drink earlier this year. I'd lost some weight, was getting compliments that I looked so good. Nice bit of self-sabotage right there, hey?

So, I'm here at work, and someone posted this on Facebook, not only is it your fave colour, but is totally one for you Leshar....not that you marked yourself down, but remember your worth in this.
