I'm in for another 24 hours! Back on track with checking in.

Went to a going away party last night for a work friend. Someone ordered a daquiri and they kept messing it up. When they got it right, they brought her a huge one. Then a minute later, they brought out another one for free. At a table of 20, for some reason he said, "for you!" And put it in front of me. Whaaaaat? Nobody there knows I'm an alkie except my wife, who thankfully sat right next to me. We just laughed amongst ourselves and passed it around for folks to taste. Problem solved.
"and the beat goes on......" Problem Solved!

You know what you need to do. You'll feel better afterwards. A Hug right now!

I was an absolute mess. I sobbed the whole way through the 90 minutes. Couldn't get a word out, but that didn't matter.
To hear other people share their stories, and when you feel the love in that room, you will be hooked I'm sure. I've just re-read all of my old posts since I first joined Sober Recivery in December 2014 and I was literally posting every other day about relapsing, drinking, never drinking again, etc.... I just haven't been able to stay off the alcohol. Right now I'm only 3 weeks in, but something has changed in me. The meetings are keeping me going, as is this entire forum.
Surround yourself with a postive network of people who want to see you succeed in your sobriety. One day at a time Hun. Walk through those doors X
Right on! THINK POSITIVE - DRAW POSITIVE.
