6.41am in Italy and we're up early for a day in Rome. I'll say hello to the Pope if I see him. Another 24 hours please. Sobriety is making this trip unbelievably good. Well done everyone celebrating milestones, hope you all have a great day xxx

Good morning,

I'm already having some trouble with regard to next weekend! I have an old friend who wants me to come visit, and it's a long weekend. She was messaging me last night and every sentence was about booze. Margaritas, booze popsicles--ugh! To her time off work = booze, holiday weekends = booze, old friend visiting = booze. THAT isn't how I think anymore. I didn't say anything, yet. I mentioned that I was done drinking a few weeks back, but that's all.

I think I need to speak up, later today, and let her know. Maybe I should stop by for a couple hours this weekend instead of next. Or go next weekend, but earlier in the day, and leave early. It's my next challenge after last weekend's trip. Needed to get this out and admit that it's bothering me . I am going to schedule it the way I need it to be!

Have a great sober day--thank you for listening. Going to put lots of time into my recovery and get stronger.

24 more hours for me, for sure!

Love

Red

Good morning. I hope everyone has a good sober day today! Congrats to today's celebrants!

I'm pretty sure I got a case of PAWS going on right now. Wow! Not fun. I'm not going to to drink though. I can't go through what I did after my last relapse again. With that said I'm here for another day of sobriety.

The final hurdle was having my references checked. Whilst my references are from folks I have good relationships with, I realised they were from a job I was fired from. Not for drinking but it was my drinking that led to it. Hence, the anxiety as the company did not know the reasons I lost that job (they never asked and I didnt tell). It was now beyond my control. Whilst I comforted myself with that fact, I still remained anxious. I also realised that I would probably never get a decent job if my references didnt check out. It finally reached a conclusion in the past 48 hours. Fortunately, my references all checked out and I signed the contract last night. Phew ! I have kept this quiet from everyone except my wife as I didnt want to tempt fate. Now I have to resign today. Gulp, I havent done that for a long while....

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my SR friends. Without my daily check in and support, I would have lost my marbles. Irrespective of the outcome, I am deeply grateful to you all for giving me a daily reprieve. Also, for giving me perspective. Its only a job !

Congrats to the milestoners ! Especially happy for those breaking through the weeks and transitioning to months ! Thats super brilliant ! We go on and on and on !

Another 24 hours of gratitude, loving kindness and sobriety ! Its 8:32am here !
Just another glimpse into Faith, Hope and Love.

Congrats Kaneda!

I pulled a muscle in my neck working out yesterday- I can barely turn my head!

7 weeks sober today and feeling pretty good. The only time the AV speaks up is at the pool when I see parents enjoying the pool bar while their kids play. yeah, that would have been me several times a week, several of hundreds of dollars a month down the drain, and several hangovers a week to deal with which would of course led to morning drinking, self hate, binge eating, more self hate, shame, pain blah blah blah.

I will never go back there again. Never, ever ever....
