Heading out to say a final goodbye to a dear friend.

It's 5:29 AM and I'll need to draw on my strength to stay sober today.

Good morning,

Saturday at last. I look forward to a quiet day at home, after many weekends of overactivity. I feel completely drained. There is always much to do but sometimes it can wait. Prayer, meditation, listening to the mourning dove that live in my yard--with all the chaos and negativity at work I have missed hearing and seeing them. They're up kinda early. Still dark here.

24 more hours please

Have a good day or night

Love

Red

I love seeing how positive you are.. you're an inspiration to me :-) I love being sober x
Thank you Nic . You're quite inspiring, too!

You will look lovely, I am sure. Very good to hear that your Mom having wine didn't affect you! I am scared to be around drinking yet, so that is something to look forward to --being strong and secure in my sobriety. I don't want to have to be so wary of being around it. Some day!

Have a great evening!

I still try and avoid being around drinking where possible!! It's a very quick slippery slope for me if I'm not careful xx

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.”


6:15am in Alberta and it's going to be a darn good day not to drink!

I'm in for another 24. Happy Saturday!!

Struggled a bit last night, but dark chocolate peanut butter cups helped beat down the AV!

Congrats to everyone making the commitment today and big hugs for anyone struggling. Much love to all.
