Glad it's the weekend
Another clever one! Why can't you have a cat too?

It wouldn't be fair on the cat Cissy - I work full time and occasionally travel abroad. I know cats don't need company in the way dogs do but even so.... On top of that central London is pretty clogged with traffic.

I do sponsor a couple of penguins at London Zoo, sort of pet substitute

I'm on facebook and my nephew posted this and now I'm caught up in reliving the moments during and after the 9/11 attacks. I'm not a Howard Stern fan by any means but this is amazing. If you want to listen, it's over 2 hours. I'm not even 1 hour in and no towers had crumbled yet.

I'm reminded how unreal it was in the moment and how unthinkable it all was. The world changed that day.



If this is going to bring you down and make you want to drink, don't watch it.

Hello all, how is everyone today?

Nesty, sounds like you have a plan in the works. Good for you!

Cissy, listening to Stern (first time). Interesting to see how he goes from a jokester to being horrified at the 9/11 events. This morning MSNBC was replaying the NBC coverage of that morning.

Sao, you get recharged yet?

Jen, you sure do keep busy!

Shabby (and others) thank you for the thanks.

More Stern, shows the utter chaos of that day. They bombed the Capitol. They bombed Jersey. An explosion at the State Dept. Rampant (and understandable) speculation, much of it incorrect.

Remember when I said we all need to stick together? Well, I need someone to stick with me now. Temptation has struck for the second day in a row, which is disturbing. Someone walk me through this, please.

Sorry to be so needy.

Do you use AVRT ? Tell AV no, not today! You dont want 911 as relapse day, right?

Sadie, so good to see you. Thank you for posting, and hope you do so more often. I'll try the teletubbies.

Teletubbies are like guided imagery to me, that giggling baby in the sun kills an urge straight off. Then you have to crack a smile how goofy they are, urge killer. At least I hope

I have read AVRT, don't actually remember much about it. But 'not today' is the goal. I've experienced so little temptation during my meager month and a half of sobriety that I was caught a bit off guard today. But I'll make it, Just hanging around here helps.

I have to wait until Cissy shows up to make 'The Change'. I'll miss the band-aid.

Thank you for talking to me.

Hey Frank,

Sorry you're tempted to ruin your health
Sorry you're tempted by financial ruin
Sorry you want f****d up relationships
Yada Yada yada

Particularly sorry that I am tempted by these things too

Don't waste your time thinking it will bring release Frank. It's a donut with a turd filling

Sao, I should know this as often have posted here. But how long have you been sober? Sorry if that's too personal. And how often are you tempted?

Hah! donut with a turd filling.
