Great job, Casey. Early sobriety is so hard. I know, I'm still doing it. We'll keep doing it together.

Hi FallingLeaves and welcome. Congrats on your 1+ year of sobriety

Bobbie, you're just awesome. Coming up on 1 year. So proud of you.

Well, I think that iced coffee I had at 5:30 was a bad idea. Ah well, better than booze. Night all and thanks for keeping me sober another day.

Good to see you LB! If I had coffee at 5:30 I'd be watching the sun come up. I can't get my day started without a cup or two, but then I'm done.

Hi FallingLeaves, and welcome! If you've been sober since March of 2016 then this is your place. Visit often.

Casey, whatever works - good job.

I got all cleaned up, drank about a liter of water and just grilled up a little dinner. Fortunately, I have some Klondike bars in the freezer - don't hate me.

Have a good night everyone!

Welcome to the cool kids' table, FallingLeaves. Congrats on your sobriety. That's amazing!

Great job today, Casey! Very proud of you.

MITA, I'm a bit jealous of the Klondike bars.

Good night, LB and BBT, good afternoon, Phoenix.

Purps, I know you're sleeping, so I hope you have great dreams about your crush.

CH- hey.

Had a great evening with Sophia. My daughters gave her a little concert of Disney songs. She was delighted and it was adorable.

Night, class.

I've been lacking energy too, Phoenix. Maybe its a "worldwide feeling of blah" going on, but I'm hoping to snap out of it.

Welcome, FallingLeaves! Awesome job on your sobriety!

Wow, Bobbie, coming up on a year ~ so proud of you! And I bet that Disney concert was too stinkin' cute!

Hi everyone! Time to fire up the startin' fluid!

Morning

Okay I'm going to get this out before I chicken out. I drank last night. And I am talking in fine fashion. I feel like an absolute bag of crap this morning but I am grateful at least for the reminder that this is not what I want or who I am anymore. For all of you struggling please hear me when I tell you how quickly the anxiety, the nausea, the shakes and the self-loathing come back. It's not a "I can do this today and just get back on the sobriety train tomorrow" The consequences don't take a breather. And yes, they still suck.

Anyways back to work today with the brain fog to end all brain fogs. Should and wil be a long day.

If you need help - put your hand up....we don't need to do this alone. Lesson learned.

Take care of yourself today, Sam. Water, etc. and don't beat yourself up. You stubbed your toe, don't let it cause you to fall off the mountain.

That Chris Cornell news is definitely a shocker. Wow.

Hey Sam, sorry you drank. Take it slow today. You can do this. We need you.

6:00am here and time to get some startin fluid. Slept reasonably well - that Klondike bar must have helped

No Klondike Bar for me but also slept reasonably well.

Work this morning/afternoon. Family time and AA meeting after that. No isolating today.

Sorry you drank, Sam. I've been on that edge all week. Thanks for the reminder that I don't want back in that mess. As others have said, make this a slip, not a fall. You can do this.

Wishing everyone a safe and sober Thursday/Friday for our upside down Aussies.
