What a fine day. Started off with some meditation and ended with blackberry cobbler which I made for the parents. So nice to not be drunk and searching for the next drink. I feel the difference here more acutely than anywhere else.

Congrats, milestoners and hugs to Altoids.

It's going to feel great to wake up sober and hang-over free tomorrow, Cileiope. Hang in there.

Thanks! It means a lot to me! I have been waking with pain from TMJ ...tension headache and whatnot, but my stomach is very grateful for my sobriety! Have a great Monday!

[QUOTE=strategery;5565789]I'll add that my commitment to this thread always helps. Just knowing I committed 24 hours here always gives me the strength to continue no matter what I am facing.

Strat, I'll second that. I consider checking in here nightly as a Basic Tool in my "toolbox". This definitely is a Committment to myself. This group is my nightly meeting before ending each day. It makes me happy!

Might as well sign in for the next 24 hours too!

I have 9 meetings tomorrow. That may be a record.

Work meetings, that is, not AA meetings

Welcome to SR and to the 24 Hour thread! And congrats on choosing a better way of life in recovery.

You might also consider joining and actively participating in the Class of September 2015 thread. It's a great way to learn from and help others who are also in early recovery.
