I'm feeling headachy and shivery and a bit out of sorts and I never used to have a hangover as such BUT knowing that in the not to distant future I will have a propery memory and clear head back this is so worth it !!!

Hang on in there anyone struggling, if I can do this I'm sure you can. Congratulations to those keeping it going x
Don't put yourself down, day 2 is great This is such a hard, horrible thing to beat and many people don't make it till the end of day 1. I am so glad you are here and posting and looking forward to feeling better.

Love your dog by the way xx

Looking at my biggest challenge yet tonight. Last time I drank was last Wednesday (my bowling night). Tonight I enter the same warm, comfortable environment. The difference is, this time I KNOW I don't want to drink. Already gave the guys a heads up not to order me in any because of the antibiotics I'm taking. A white lie, but I'm not ready for that conversation with them just yet.

Need 24 for the win!

You can always log-in here if things get uncomfortable, SoberDave; do you have an escape plan just in case?

Enjoy the bowling games.

There is no "allow". We love you....and we are ALL in this together.
Every single one of us....

Bobbi love ~ unfortunately I haven't seen Ardy for a while, here or in another thread she regularly posts in. Let's send her love and good thoughts, and maybe she will pop by.

Congrats to some fantastic milestoners today ! Well done to all whether it be 1 week, 2 weeks or 2 years, they are all achievements which require commitment and effort, 24 hours at a time ! Gain satisfaction from this and move forward, together !

Well, I reflected more on yesterday's conundrum and I believe I knew the right thing to do all along. However, my self centredness reared up and blocked me from addressing the issue of anger and resentment I have towards my brother. When I reflected on this, I realise I was suffering from the delusion of ego and pride; that I was deflecting from reality in that I am no one special. By stepping away from the self and focusing on being of love and compassion to others, I know that by attending my mother's function I will make her happy; by attending I will have a chance to show compassion and equanimity towards my brother. As importantly, it brings relief to my mind and my heart as I know this is the right thing to do. When I reach the end of the road, I only wish to have loving memories of my family; no bitterness; no regrets; no anger. Rant over

Another 24 hours of gratitude, wisdom and sobriety pls ! Its 8:26am here !

Kaneda, I'm glad to read your post. I have a brother whom I resent, maybe with justification. For most of the last year when he was going through some significant problems, I obstinately refused to communicate or even feel compassion for him. But recently I've accepted that it doesn't help either one of us for me to hold on to the resentment. A forgiving attitude towards him may not satisfy my grudging nature, but it nourishes my sanity and may, just possibly, comfort him. So I'm pleased to see you reach a similar conclusion.
