I made the choice not to exaggerate the problem by drinking. If I would have chose to drink over it I would have been up all night pissed tossing and turning and then woke up today still fuming...and hungover. Growth. I am proud of me That is that moment between when a craving hits and the choice or not to drink makes good recovery Driving to work I realized all this and it made me happy

I think today is just typical day 5 I hate the world depression but I learned from yesterday this too shall pass. It will. I will just keep facing each emotion and day sober and continue to grow!!!!

Anyway, I hope you all have great days or nights wherever you are.

Yep lil pup,

I think your stretching tall. Instead of getting "all stretched out" you're getting stretched Tall. Be Happy.

Upward, yessssss! Super congrats on 6 months!!

I'll take another 24 sober hours, please!

My honey enjoyed her birthday! We are embarking on a big move, so I tried really hard to make it special and not get swallowed up in that. Looks like it worked.

Hi,
I lifted a few heavy boxes with books today. We decided to do a housecleaning and have a Yard Sale next month. I LOVE reading books and collecting them too! But, my passion has led me to a no over abundance of books. I need to share. Plus getting a $1 a book will be a nice extra!
I've got the heating pad on my lower back,feels great.: Mmm a cup of hot cocoa is in my immediate future too.
Checking in for the next 24 hours of my recovery, thanks to my HP, AA, and you guys here on SR.
My prayers tonight for our friends having a tough time with Depression. I've walked your path. I just want to suggest seeing your Doctor. I finally did and my life much improved. Then when Sobriety came into my life ..oh yeah Universe

Take care of your back, Bobbi.

Do you have plans for the proceeds of your yard sale?
