Congratulations to all milestoners and everyone else for turning up. Clock me on for 24 more please 6:25 AEST. Feeling anxious today about family stuff and know that it is connected with control. I'm working on it, and so grateful to SR and everyone here for helping me to do so. I was limping. Happy I am sober no matter what gets dished, it's a challenge.

Congrats to all the fab milestoners today ! Keep them coming, one day a t a time ! We're all in this together

OT: I've been reflecting on happiness and it seems to me that if I follow the opposite of conventional wisdom it brings better results. So, instead of being driven to actions that benefit myself, rather if I focus on actions that benefit others, I find myself to be happier and more contented. As well, I am less troubled by negative thoughts of guilt or regret. Hmmm..

Another 24 hours of serenity, patience and sobriety pls ! Its 7:48am here !

You're doing beautifully, Nic. Those drinking dreams can be unsettling but, take heart, they tend to become much less frequent with time.

I haven't been checking in lately, but I'm still sober and staying that way. Sometimes I forget that recovery is a gift freely given to me and not something owed to me. I know that if I take my recovery for granted, then I'll get drunk for sure. So here I am, taking my recovery one day at a time.
