Hello everyone. I've been reading up on you all, just not posting. I still have this god-awful cough which is driving me crazy, I decided to stop trying to leave the baby at the gym (long story but basically I am not thrilled with the woman who would be watching him), and I've been feeling kind of numb and unmotivated in general.

Sobriety is still going strong- I can walk past the beer and wine and not even glance at it anymore. It feels so good

Not much else to report- I am trying the Wellbutrin again and I think it's making me a little anxious. Or maybe it's not mixing well with the cough syrup I am taking...who knows.

Hugs to all of you!

Evidently I don't know how to make a link either. The good news is I cut and pasted to a search engine and found it.

Hi peeps. Following along with those in the 4-6 week caution zone as I'm one month today myself.Read back a few pages, seems everyone is on track. That's good to see . Work is the same, the only saving grace is I have another employment opportunity in progress though it's only part time. My bf said don't quit yet whenever I text him in my cranky misery lol. The bf is hunting atm and I'm waiting on my friend to head to an AA meeting. Skittles for dinner .

I'm off today and tomorrow, will get to work on my cab build in a bit after coffee and shower. I hope everyone here has a beautiful day!
I've learned that I have a lot to learn about cabinetry. I also learned that I'll be buying more wood. It was still time well-spent.

... aaaaaaand my AA meeting was apparently cancelled. No one was there, the room at the church was locked. I waited ten minutes, and I'm back home. Hmph.

I'll catch one in Marble Falls tomorrow night, then. I was really looking forward to this.

I'm resting tonight. I ended up working late. I'd hoped to go to the gym but I'm tired - not just lazy, but honestly tired. So I'm going to read for a bit and cut myself a break. I'm not very good at letting myself rest (which is why being drunk was so compelling - I didn't have to be productive) so this is actually a good step for me. Just.... rest.

Good to see you are still into health foods Gyps

Can I ask you guys not to post links to commercial sites? commercial sites are ones that have anything for sale, be it advertising rehabs or whatever.

Ofter you'll find the same info on other sites, but if you can't, it's ok to PM links to interested parties.

This is a great PAWs link

Sorry your meeting was cancelled Thump, next time, ask them to add you to the email/text message tree so that you can be notified before your commute. I hope tomorrow’s meeting makes up for today’s disappointment.

Good to hear that you are cutting yourself some slack, StrongBird. Enjoy your evening!

Thanks for the info, Dee. I was worried about that when I posted. Now I know!
Thanks.

Yeah, my shyness bit me in the backside tonight. The last two meetings, I hung around, offered to help pick up, and talked a little to a couple of oldsters, but didn't think to share contact info as I was just meeting folks and didn't feel comfy. But I need to get my number out to someone so that when this sort of thing happens I can adjust.

Tomorrow's meeting is also an open meeting, which I think I prefer for right now.

Great post Delilah!

Strongbird - I can so relate to your post. At 58 I'm just starting to tell myself that I can take a break. Wonder what's that's all about.

Ok so now my head cold has turned into an all out faucet. Miserable. But it can only get better!

Take care all.

Morning my friends!
Got to the gym at 5:45 this morning. Back home now and so far things are going well, I can hear the baby waking up as I type this. Feeling great this morning and hope this feeling lasts.
Going to drop of DS and then get some Valentine gifts for the kids. I will read up on how you are all doing when I have "quiet time" this afternoon (when Evan is napping).

Hugs to you all!

Morning all!

Waking up to lots of things this morning:

- Day 39 of being stone cold sober
- My birthday - 35 years old today!
- Awaiting an offer from the new job I interviewed for
- Down 5.1 lbs in the last 9 days

Now, a normal person would be happy for all of the above, as they are generally positive things. Me? I keep thinking when will the other shoe drop? For example, I'm beating myself up that I haven't lost more weight, that I won't get the job because my references won't check out, that I'm pretty alone on my birthday after isolating pretty heavily the last 3 years, why I don't have a partner and haven't dated in 3+ years, etc. When will I ever just be content? Sigh. I hate this anxious, negative way I turn good into bad.

Anyway, not going to drink today. Going to celebrate the day with a dental cleaning, a hair appointment and, if the weather holds up, dinner with my parents.

Sounds like everyone is doing well - you guys rock! 👍
