Hi all,

Just checking in - had a great time at the pumpkin festival today. We are all exhausted now, though. It was a beautiful, warm day day and the fresh air and sun just wiped us. Looking forward to an early bedtime tonight!!

Nawwww Ladybug

What a lovely day . Family is everything xx

Those days can really make you tired tho , I remember them well.

How is everyone today?
Hollys been up for 2 hours putting on a Halloween face. They dress up for it at her work for the whole month.

I'm not really into it to be honest , it's more an American thing , but it actually originated somewhere else, Ireland maybe ? I'll have to look it up .

Have a great day / evening all xx

Hi gang,

Home alone tonight.
Family went out to a concert in Boston.
My nephew took them, I had to work.
Lonely here but relaxing.

I sold some extra fish tank stuff and made a little pocket $$$.
In the past I would be blowing it at the bar tonight.
Glad my life has changed. And my priorities have as well.

Good morning, afternoon, night, Julyers.

Hope goodness awaits each of you today.

Welp, I wasn't going to post this, but I know we are already worried about 2 of our other classmates so here goes ... I drank again last night. However, something good did come out of it. Hubby noticed and called me out on it. I had been hiding my drinking from him and everyone else so it is kind of a huge relief that I finally came clean with him. Now he knows I have been struggling and can help. I am not proud of the fact that I have been hiding this from him, but, as only other alcoholics know, this disease is very isolating and we do things we are not so proud of. My husband is very supportive and says he will watch the girls in evenings if I want to go to meetings. I am so lucky and need to get serious about my sobriety. No more mess ups or slips. My marriage and family depend on this. Today has to be my LAST Day 1. Sorry that I keep sounding like a broken record. I know you are all probably sick of hearing it again, but I wanted go be honest with you all.

I am so glad that your husband is being supportive, Ladybug. Have you ever done a 90 in 90; I've heard many AAers talking about those.

We will never get tired of you; we understand how hard this is.

Aww Ladybug, I suspected your hubby didn't know, but didn't want to ask becasue I understand the whole secretive thing. And we alcys get defensive and touchy at the most critical time we need to be honest!

You are safe here, I think we all understand the crazy motions our mind goes through to keep us locked into the addiction. I pray for you and for your husband, that he may support you through this. You really can make it though.

You wouldn't be having a million day ones if the will wasn't there. I think I had 3 years of day 1s before I came here. The endless, "never again".

At least you know you need to get well.

Hi Ladybug

I really believe you can do what I did, or SW, or Crois, or Bob or Leshar, or Snooz or anyone here.

You can be sober. You just need to make the changes necessary.

Hope this is a point now where you can do that with your family's support

D

Thanks guys It is a comforting feeling to know that this can be my last Day 1 and the last time I have to feel like this. I keep remembering what you once said on here., Bob, that life is too precious to spend it drunk or hungover. Very true.

Night all and thank you for being here
