Venus, I am sorry about the heat; it must be so uncomfortable (especially without your trees).

Those words don't sound like words the Snooz we know and love would speak.

I really have nothing to say about that post that you want to hear, Wendy.


Did you get to the AA meeting? How was it?

Hi everyone,

Haven't posted in awhile, sorry. Been really busy getting ready for Christmas - it's a lot more work now with 2 little ones My older daughter is finally feeling better and getting over the terrible cough she had - finally, after 3 Dr visits, a chest x-ray, bloodwork & tests and 3 different medications.

It is a little after 5pm here and this is my least favorite part of the day - danger zone is between now and 8ish, it's always a scramble to get dinner made, kids get cranky, etc. But, I am staying sober tonight I am really just taking it a day at a time. If I think too far ahead my AV just takes over.

Snoozy - I, too, am worried for you. I know how hard this is and how fast this can take a hold of us, but you need to pull yourself out of this. You know you can do it -you had 2 years of sobriety before!! Please. Love you and thinking about you.

A day at a time is a very good strategy, Ladybug; embrace and appreciate each sober moment - it truly helps to change your way of thinking.

Thanks SL! That's good advice and is exactly what I am trying to do. I am soooo much happier when I am away from that demon. Just have to keep it away for good. No more just once a month, once a week etc. I am kidding myself. I need to stick close to here too

Bob's day with his daughter.

Yesterday I took the day off from work. Not because I was sick, hungover, wanting to drink more...ect...ect.
But because I wanted to spend a day with my daughter Christmas shopping.
Hey, I had a sick/personal day I saved.

She drove, yup,my lil girl that's got her permit drove dad to all the stores she wished to visit. Then we had lunch together at a nice Asian Cuisine buffet.
What a wonderful day we had.

Something that wouldn't have been possible just a 2 1/2 years ago.

Crois , I am so sorry I've upset you , I would NEVER want to do that. You friends have been so good to me and I understand your frustration with me seeming not to want to help myself.

This is so far from the truth, I abhor the way I am , I'm sorry for my negativity .

I must sound like a pain in the arse.

I understand what you are saying Dee re me feeling sorry for myself. That's true in part , but not entirely. Every morning I wake up I tell myself I will NOT drink today.

If I were all of you I would be annoyed with me too as you feel I'm not taking on any of your constructive advice. I have tried, I truly have.

I'm not myself at the moment and I feel so self indulgent with my all about me posts .

I'm going to take myself away for a while and try to get myself right. It really upsets me that I remind Crois of bad times with her Mum. She is right & this must just be too hard and confronting for you .

I'm really sorry everyone , I truly am. I love you all

Wendy

Xxxx

I don't think anyone wants you to go away Wendy - far from it.
You're lucky to have honest friends.

We're honest because we love and care for you, not because you're pissing us off.

You need more SR, not less

Yes. And as I just said to you a minute ago Snoozy, PLEASE don't run away.

We love you, and want you to be healthy and happy. ♥
