Good morning. I finally got some clarity about the weekends at work. Starting the 24th and 25th of this month I will have off and then I will only have to work every fourth weekend. This is much fairer and I feel much better about that. It was difficult but I should have done this much sooner. I actually had to call the big boss this morning on my day off.to get this whole thing clarified.

Of course This whole thing brought all kinds of urges to get a bottle of wine and slug it down, but I fought it off and am still sober!

I most likely start posting on the weekender thread too now that I have a "real "weekend now LOL!!

I should have a nice day off today and hope everyone has a good day too. You guys are terrific and thanks again for the support and caring .

Hi I when I posted this I saw Dee snuck in a new thread on me and it was on the last thread so I'm copying and pasting it here.

I felt the urges when reading that. Wish I could find courage as easily available with booze. But without all the consequences that follow it.

Happy to hear that, WWS! It goes to show that sometimes we have more power over our lives than we think we did. Good for resisting the expected urges!

Wayward - Well done for achieving your goal. You decided what you wanted, constructed a reasoned case and persuaded who you needed to agree to your plan. Fantastic!

And even better you dodged the expected curve ball from your AV telling you to celebrate with booze. That is huge.

Finally, you are already revising your plan for how to deal with these hard won weekends.

You are my inspiration for today as I implement my own mini plan to protect my sobriety this weekend.

It is spring time in this part of the world, and I am 18 weeks sober today. Thanks everyone. Each and every post I read helps me stay sober and happy.

Go well, friends

Fradley.

Toots - yay - you are my favorite audience !

That was done on purpose. It took me three attempts on this phone to get it right. Ironically auto-correct refused to allow "auto carrot" , despite happily transforming every other word I write!

Well done Key!

Have an exit plan and don't be afraid to use it if you need to.

Best wishes

Good morning everyone. It is back to work today but I'm going to the gym first. I do feel much calmer and better about going to work today.

Congratulations on 18 weeks Fradley . Staying sober that long is the inspiration for me!

You can get through it Key!!! Have fun tonight and stay sober!

Key good job getting thru the first event sober!

Wayward have a nice day at wompland.

Another day of womp for me then the next 2 days off. Back to my reg schedule now if no more womp on Mondays finally. That was really wearing my out

My dads coming over tonight to help me put together some shelves for the garage to organize some stuff. I want to just get off work and sleep but it's something he's wanted to come over and do for awhile now so finally just getting it over with.

I've felt a little down the past few days and just want some alone time at home. Looking forward to relaxing tomorrow and Monday.
