I'm feeling a little better right now. I woke up feeling blah again, but then we went Christmas shopping and that seemed to help...as pathetic as it sounds, 2 hours in Walmart helped

I ended up hating the whole human race, corporations, and consumerism...oh and public washrooms! But the depression lifted! Oh dear that is pathetic lol

This class is such an inspiration - I actually got off my arse and walked the dog for 30 minutes. I know, not much, but it's a start. Thank you!

Loving a sober Saturday night. Hit the gym today, had some me time, now relaxing with a piece of pie, ice cream, and an ice tea in front of Netflix. May sounds lame but it's just what I need right now.

Sober cheers everyone!

I felt like I should wait for the December class since it is almost the end of the month, but will go ahead and join the November if that is ok. I got through my first 24 hours. The real struggle will be when I go back to work on Monday and the after work routine. I like my wine to unwind after the day. The problem is I don't just have one glass! I joined SR for the support and accountability.

Welcome Augusta! Plan ahead so that you have no reason to stop at the store after work on Monday. Shop and prep your meals for the next couple of days and head straight home after work. It will be hard, at first, but once you get a couple of weeks away from it, it does get easier.

Welcome to the gang, Augusta, Paul and everyone else!

Glad to have you with us, and changing your after work routine is a good idea. Maybe try to get out and do some activity you like after work in the beginning, so you don't get tempted by being at home when you usually have your "unwinding" time. And yes, check in here often
