I'm checking in now in case I forget to later. I've got work today, a party at my home group, and then maybe a get-together after that. It's going to be a long and busy day. Hope you all have a safe and sober New Year's Eve. I'll see you all next year!!!

Happy Mew Year!!!

Finish each day and be done with it. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson


Two of the most useless phrases in the English language are "what if" and "if only." We waste so much time and energy thinking about what we might have done and wishing we had acted or reacted differently. We imagine how things might have turned out "if only . . ."

All of us make mistakes. To go back and wonder and wish about our yesterdays prevents us from living fully today. Each day is a fresh chance; a new beginning. We can only squeeze what we can out of the moment and let the drops fall where they may. Some will evaporate and some will form rainbows.

Can I forget about yesterday and start a fresh new day?

ok please give the last 24 of 2015,
thank you to 24, you help me, so much, you show me that staying was much better that going back out, for that I'm grateful God and to you.
the best is yet to came 2016.
Bump.

Thank you for this beautiful post erfra.

Happy New Year's Eve SR. Been away from the boards a bit...but I'm still here and STILL sober! Wasn't the case 1 year ago today.

Hope everyone has a great ending to 2015. 2016 is what WE make of it!

Thanks SR.

Checking in tonight. Going for another 24 hours at 5:03p CST. I was thinking about this last year and realized that I spent all of 2015 sober, which is something I am really proud of.

I wish you all a very special and wonderful 2016! I look forward to continuing our sober journeys together.


Congratulations to toby2159,Trees39, angie247,Humbug, sean30 and Hypernova on reaching new milestones today! To celebrate your amazing accomplishments, today we have an earl grey tea layer cake. Keep up the great work!

[QUOTE=Optimist4ever57;5715740]I was going to wait until New Years Day to stop drinking, but things worked out so that I will be starting Day5 tomorrow!

Hi Optimist,
I was going to wait till after New Years Eve too, but Life decided differently. On November 12, 2012 had my 1st day of Sobriety, after decades of drinking. This will be my 4th Year of celebrating the New Year in Recovery. I'm just tickled,excited....and very very grateful.
I didn't believe in myself and gave up .... And that's why every day I end my check in by thanking my HP .
We'll see you here tomorrow!
Happy New Year
Bobbi
