Yes, you did Crois. And your best is really good.

I had an episode on Friday night....a disagreement with a neighbour, and I had that thought....right, how serious am I about this recovery thing....cos I really want a drink. I fumed for a few minutes....ignored the AV, but still I was disappointed in myself for even entertaining the thought...until the next day. Then I was REALLY proud of myself.

Always proud of you Croissant. ♥

The power of resolve and conviction . . . Good job, Croiss!!!!

Thoughts are just thoughts; it's what we do with those thoughts that shows who we are.

Resolve and Conviction - you've got them, v.

Seems we are in the direct path of a major winter storm with high winds and very significant snowfall (up to 20").

I can handle the snow but power outages are also predicted.

Goodnight SW.

I hope you dont lose power SoberLeigh. Get your gas now for your car. Try not to park under or near a tree. Hopefully you have a friend or familys house to go to in case.
