Checking in tonight. Going for another 24 hours at 5:29p CST.

Congratulations to TaylorSaint and Mia83 on reaching new milestones today! To celebrate your spectacular accomplishments, tonight we have a
Roasted Banana Cake with Cinnamon Honey Pecans and Cream Cheese Frosting! Keep up the great work!


jsm-thinking of you!

keyofc-feel better soon!

neo36-thinking that you will go away to get more recovery time under your belt is AV. I think you'd get much worse if you did this. We're here to support you. It is tough to get sober as it does take a lot of effort to learn to cope with things differently, and a lot of discomfort, but you can do it! Just keep the faith that it will get better as you go along. Sobriety gets easier as you go and the power alcohol has disappears with time.

Just keep coming back Neo. I know how you feel when you say you go, come back then want to go away for a while until you get it right. Don't want to feel ashamed, embarrassed etc. It doesn't work like that here Neo, it's a struggle, a journey that we are all embracing and part of that struggle can be relapse. It would be pretty crap if relapsers weren't understood I'd hand in my membership. We all have something to contribute Neo and it doesn't have to be perfect.

Neo you are a beautiful person and have been so supportive to me and others here too.
Please come straight back and pick up where you left off.
I would miss you too much if you stay away and stop posting each day.
I look forward to seeing you here everyday.

Well peeps. Time to reset the clock for me. AV got the better of me last night. Had more than one. Pretty disgusted in myself but not going to wallow in the guilt. I let my guard down because I'm so exhausted with the pressure at work at the moment and we had a get together at the local sports club. I know what went wrong. I normally don't go out when I'm tired but if I do I have my phone handy so I can log on to SR if I'm struggling when out and about but didn't have my phone with me and someone bought me a drink so I drank it, and another and another. I shouldn't have gone when I was so tired...should've stayed home and had a cup of tea and logged on to spend the evening with my SR friends.
So Day 1 for me again.

Tired is a huge trigger for me as well, my biggest in fact.
We keep learning, and we will keep getting stronger.
Sending you love dearest Mish.

24 more for me. I'm a little down after receiving a challenging medical report. Not life threatening but definitely life changing, and they're not done testing. Been put on some pretty heavy meds and I'm trying to adjust. I'm still sober though and still in love with my sobriety. It remains the best thing I've got going. As time marches on it seems like more and more is taken away, except for my spirituality and that is enough.
