Good luck at the new class Purplrks!! And isn't it an amazing feeling when people finally notice all your hard work!! Great job!

Well it's time for an afternoon pick-me-up in the form of some black, bitter tea!! Be back later!!

Hey Sam! It was really sunny here today too! A little chilly still but sunny!

3 weeks today! Hope everyone has a great night.
Congrats on 3 weeks LB! Woo hoo!!! You are really doing this! I really hope your little one starts sleeping better soon! Have you talked to the pediatrician about it? Maybe they can help....

Day 7 for me, I'm surprised I still feel so anxious foggy and weak at times. I guess I forgot how horrible alcohol is for the body! I'm glad for the reminder if nothing else.

Hey immri! Hang in there! I'm only 1 week ahead of you and I'm STILL exhausted! It's better than it was a week ago though!

Be cool - don't drink
Hey MITA! I'm locked into the NCAA March Madness basket right NOW! I'm in a few brackets. I have UCLA playing Arizona in the Championship and UCLA winning the whole thing. Ha!

i think your picks are solid. at this point in the tnmt though, it is game by game. 8 of the final 16 teams have a real chance. good luck!!!

Lunch meeting, topic anger. The share I related to most was anger being a reaction of fear. Fear of change and not being in control.

Morning!!

Well three days left of vacation and by all accounts I am ready to go back to work. (Remind me I said that at around 1pm Monday afternoon..lol.) The one bonus of work (besides pay) is that it keeps me busy enough that I don't have those afternoon bouts of f-it's (usually anyways)

Plan for today is some meal planning, groceries, therapy and the gym....so nothing exciting.

PJ - sounds like a good meeting - topics I am working on too ❤

Well off to start the day...love you guys.

P.S. Before I lose my nerve - today is 89 days

Morning everyone....and good night! Lol, I had to get up super early this morning and stayed up until 1:00 am watching basketball so I'm gonna snooze for another hour. Sleep is vital for me (and so is basketball! Lol!) Anyway....my day is pretty mellow today so that's good! It's my husband's bday but we are celebrating tomorrow with dinner & a professional soccer game (his fav!)

I hope you all have a great day! Xo

Day 15

Good morning, good morning, good morning! It is Friday, it is sunny and I am in a good mood!!

I think I'm taking a woman to a mtg tonight. She came to my home group last night. She is 5 months pregnant, doesn't get to see her 3 other kids, homeless (she is staying with a friend right now) and out of treatment on Sunday. She shared last night and I just cried. This disease has such a hold on her. Oh, and did I mention she has 2 degrees?? But for the grace of God.....Counting my blessings today.

Love you all! Have an awesomely awesome day!!

Thanks KiKi! I hope you get some more energy soon too.

Bobbie that is heart breaking. it's good of you to take her to a meeting. I think about the women who took me - back when I couldn't drive and was first going through all of this - all the time.
I think I need to get back to one. I miss those people and I clearly stopped putting effort into recovery.

End of day 7 for me, feeling very grateful to be feeling ok now and to have made it out of that binge before months if not years disappeared. Going to listen to some speaker tapes in bed, have a good day all. Thanks for being here.
