Hi All! Plugging away day by day here. Things have been a little bumpy with family issues the past couple of weeks but things seem to be working themselves out surprisingly well.....without my interference, so its a win/win. AV has fired up a couple of times since being home from vaca (did I mention family issues ) but I've been able to manage with no real threat to my sobriety.....which in turn is helping to boost my confidence for our upcoming beach vaca with friends. This is something I've been worried about since going sober....but I think I will do fine. I don't mean that in a blasť cocky flippant way, just saying that if I stick to my plan and I don't let my "head" get off track, I am capable of having a great sober vaca! We leave next Saturday.

Glad to hear from you Simple! And sorry to hear about your family issues, but good on you for not allowing your AV to control any sort of urges to drink.
Beach vacation sounds nice and something to look forward to.

Happy Saturday everyone!
Slept in this morning and am relaxing with a fresh pot of good java! Rainy, chilly day ahead here, so I am going to spend the day cleaning and getting organized for my week.
Hope you all have great day!

Hey everyone! I hope that the summer is treating you all well.

I apologize for not posting as diligently as I originally did. I will make an effort to be more involved.

I hit the 100 day mark sobriety mark last week...still have my moments, but all I have to do is remember what got me here in the first place. That's reinforced by the second round of thoughts of how nice it is to wake up and not feel like...crap.

I hope y'all are all doing well...

11:00 a.m, gorgeous Day outside! Amazing to have already spent time with my husband and dogs, eaten a healthy breakfast and still have the rest of the day to do all kinds of things! 5 weeks ago I would have still been in bed, moaning and wishing it were rainy so I could loll on the coach pretending to watch movies..........I really like sobriety at this moment��

CG---- I am anxious, but feeling okay about tomorrow. I am prepared and ready to get back to work! Yesterday was a bad "family" day. My family as you know has not been very supportive and is all about "money". So, basically long story short, the message I got was you will never amount to anything that you ever had in your life because of your drinking and bad decisions. But to be honest, I have literally had the best summer of my life with NO money coming in, sobriety, and spending time with people that don't care about how much money you make, what your title is, and drinking. So ****them. I will just keep on keeping on. Positive thinking and no one is going to bring me down.

you go!!!!! Obviously they have the bigger issue; and that is, you can't take it with you. If that is what their driving factor is in life, then I feel sooty for them.

I know you're going to go in there tomorrow and wow them with your brilliance! And we Mayflies are all there cheering you on, sayin', mmhmm, that's how it's done ❤️��☺️

Hi all I'm sorry I've been absent for a while. I'm still sober which is a little mini miracle for me. AA helped a great deal last week when you girls were away. I'm up at my parents for the holiday weekend which has been amazing. My home town of Blyth hosted the tall ships and it's been wonderful.
Things on bf front pretty bad though. In fact heading towards terminal. We don't talk much at all and I'm in my own recovery bubble at the minute. Utterly necessary from my point of view but he is feeling neglected. So it's come out in a vicious text argument which lasted over 2 hours. I've been sobbing in bed for the last hour and must admit I'm a bit scared. My AA sponsor says DO NOTHING (yes in capitals lol) but it's so hard not to feel very hurt by such nasty personal attacks. Has anyone else had partner issues?
Sorry to go on and I feel a bit bad coz I've not contributed for ages but I simply don't know what to do. My emotional side wants to nip it in the bud and finish it but I suspect such a big change right might make me vulnerable.....plus I've got PMS lol (sorry men!)
Anyway.....thanks for allowing me the chance to offload in advance. Big hugs to you all I've missed you. Jo xxx

So nice to hear from you, Jo! Terribly sorry to hear about the bf fight 😕😔 I think I agree with your sponsor. Give it some time before u react. Try to remember this is a huge change for him, too. Did he say what is really bugging him the most? Was drinking something you two always did together?

Hi guys!
First day on the new job! Oh man, lots to learn. Great environment. Showed up in capris and a nice blouse and was overdressed. LOL--- guess it is jeans and flip flops for me from now on. It was a typical first day. Found myself lost for a bit, but then realized I have been out of commission for awhile, so I have a lot of catching up to do!
Hope you all had a great day!

Awesome Camery about the job!! Wishing you the best and very happy for you. Let us know about how it progresses

Jo - Sorry to hear that about the bf. Change is hard for everyone on both sides of this, especially since drinking is something you guys shared together. I agree with your sponsor about not initiating any changes in sobriety for awhile. Try to include him and talk to him as much as possible about what is going on with you and your recovery, while knowing that you need to keep your side of the street clean and do not attempt to take someone else's inventory (Can't do someone else's Step 4). As long as you keep plugging along day by day and do not make your sobriety dependent upon anyone else, you should be fine. Just keep close to your support systems and share as much with those as you need to.

Good to "see" you CG, Tootiesdad, MKLove, and Simplicity...glad to see everyone doing so well!!
