A quick check-in for 24 more.

Courage and Gilmer reminded me, through their posts in another thread, of two great Shakespeare sonnets:

Sonnet *29:
***
When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.


Sonnet 30

When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time’s waste.
Then can I drown an eye unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death’s dateless night,
And weep afresh love’s long since cancelled woe,
And moan th' expense of many a vanished sight.
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoanèd moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
  But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
  All losses are restored, and sorrows end.

Thanks for the shout out, Casey.

18 months. Wow. Hey, it's been really easy the last few months. There are entire days when I don't have a thought of drinking..

I guess 24 more hours would be good.

I hope that you don't 'disappear', dear erfra; you mean so very much to us.

Stay in tune with your thoughts and where they might lead you; so many people here have said that a relapse begins long before we take that first drink.
