Hello everyone! It’s wonderful to see each of you here today! We have cake, a sheep, a goat, a goose, wolves, a tiny horse, a chick, a puppy, cats, dogs, and many other wonderful people here! Most of all, we have each other!

A warm welcome to Bobbieka, CharlesG, Evienne, ForMyGirls, HollyWouldnt, and Mrskw! We hope this thread is a useful tool in renewing your commitment to sobriety on a daily basis, as well as a place you find encouragement, support and inspiration! It’s great to have every single one of you here!

The list runs from 12a central standard time (CST) to 11:59p CST. If you check in once during those times, your name is on the list, which is posted the following day.

Welcome back aussieblue, heyfly, Lolipa, Rcvringaddict30, Steely, tootsl1, and Vandermast! We've missed seeing you and are so glad you're here with us!

Congratulations to all of us today on celebrating another day sober! That sober time can really add up over time when committing to sobriety each day! I am so glad we’re in this together and part of each other’s recovery journeys! Thank you all for being here! This thread wouldn’t be what it is without every single one of us!

Here’s today’s list of those who made part of their commitment to sobriety including posting on this thread on March 2nd, 2016:

So strategies for my first 24 hours - Netflix, Xbox, Diet Cherryade, mindful colouring, spending time on SR, it's a beautiful day so I might go for a walk (or I might go to the gym.)

I'm so looking forward to my husband getting in from work. I feel great relief when he comes home.

My only concern is getting through this 24 hours and I'm not getting carried away with myself or thinking any further ahead than that.

Keep going everyone.
Good to have you here
