Rahrah,

I can feel your sense of accomplishment and you rightly deserve it. Isn't it wonderful friend?! Keep doing what you're doing....................

well I'm still here, what can I say but thank you for your invaluable support.

The Don't Quit Poem


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


here with tears , lost but not forgotten
is incredible the love you show me.

thank you

24 more for this inactive suffering alcoholic .

Asking for 24 more please, Dear God.

Congrats to all those celebrating a milestone today and to all those sober today!!

Prayers for the sick or struggling. Special prayers for Erfra. Prayers for all us alcoholics/addicts.

You can make it right. The choice is yours. Today is a great day to start!

Erfra, what beautiful words of wisdom. Failure is not an option. We must carryon. Our rewards will follow after.
