The list on this thread usually has 40-60 names a day. If you are struggling, write them down, or print the list and carry it with you. We are your people. We want you to succeed.

Happy new year, all you crazy-named people.

24 more for me, please. 6:24 am

I remember when you first told us about this tool, Bim. I have found it very helpful as well - especially in those early days. It bears repeating so thanks for the reminder!

Doesn't matter if this is Day 1, Week 1, Month 1 or Year 1 or beyond, by checking in here you are making a public commitment to stay sober for today and after all, the past is gone and tomorrow is always in the future, so today is all we have for certain. Together, we can DO THIS!!!!!

With all that said, it's now 6:10 AM and I'm with you all for another day sober.
Awesome post FBL!!!! ♥♥
