An old friend is coming to town. She messaged me last night and asked me if I wanted to get margaritas. I said I would love to hang out, but I was going to have tea, and would prefer a restaurant . And suggested a gallery or museum. She is ok with that. Now, to make it as early in the day as possible., with an end point. Should I ask her to exercise? . I am taking control of this. She might get so annoyed with the healthy suggestions--haha. It's a test for me, but I am ready to face my old friends sober. Will keep close, though, very close to SR!

Neo, I am happy you're ok as well. It just wasn't the same around here without you and Phoenix going back and forth. . I hope all turns out well. We are here for you and will help you through whatever comes.

If I am going to Spain with Jo I'd better hurry up and grab my things! Actually, I am about to do my 20 step commute to my office to start my work day. I would prefer it was Spain! A Spanish breakfast sounds awesome! Have a good trip.

Kris, I hope you are feeling less pain today, and that your husband is doing better. Much love to you both.

Tink, you are sounding strong and determined. Yes, this time feels different for me too. Congratulations on Day 3, soon to be 4!

Need to grab a bite and a gallon of coffee, then off to work with me,

Stay strong and lean on us.

Love and happy Friday!

Thanks Red! I'll be happy to see the back end of day 3! So stressed about my blood results but all good apart from slightly elevated liver enzymes . Will be interesting to compare the next set of results after some healing sober time.
Good on you for being assertive with your friend and trying to find something you can do together that doesn't revolve around drinking. What about meeting for Brekky? Then there's no issue with alcohol being involved? Just a thought..
much love ❤

07:19 EDT and another 24 for me! 10 days done and humbly asking for 24 hours more.
On Wednesday I went to a great AA meeting and someone shared that they had been getting the Vivitrol shot, and they nearly vomited when at a picnic where there was alcohol. Know it sounds crazy but THAT is what I want...so I made an appt with a specialist who can prescribe it as long as it's safe for me (should be as I have no allergies - except alcohol of course). Going next Thursday so fingers crossed that this time next week I won't be able to even watch someone on TV drinking (ok I am exaggerating, but goals are good lol).

Hope all is well with Venuscat...her last post was worrisome.

6:00am in Alberta, it's going to be a darn good day not to drink!

Another 24 for me please, and thanks...

Going next Thursday so fingers crossed that this time next week I won't be able to even watch someone on TV drinking (ok I am exaggerating, but goals are good lol).

Hope all is well with Venuscat...her last post was worrisome.
Day 11! Good Going, Vini!
