Stay sober folks. The other way is sure insanity
We have had to deal with some less than pleasant financial situations over the past few years. Some due to poor judgement on our part, and some due to circumstances beyond our control. As stressful as they were facing up to them and taking action alleviated much of the anxiety.

Sending strength your way today Weev.

I tried to get on here to let everyone know I was alright but for some reason the site kept sending me to the login page. Please continue praying for those who are still dealing with effects of this massive hurricane.

Signing up for 24 hours drink and drug free. 6:30am in Jacksonville, Florida!!

Congratulations to all those celebrating milestones today!!
I am so glad you are okay Yukon! That had to be very scary. Hopefully you will be able to repair the minor damage quickly.

I've had a great day. I saw a cognitive behavioural therapist today - my first ever experience of therapy and guess what?? I'm not crazy!! I told her everything and I mean everything. I told her about the secret night time drinking and hiding empty bottles and the black outs and the way I think about stuff and she sat there and listened and wrote notes. And when I finally finished talking because sober me loves to talk, I asked her if I was crazy and she said, "no, not at all. You've just got into the habit of black and white thinking and you seem to have developed some unhelpful core beliefs about yourself. We can make a plan and work on it". And she had loads of certificates all over her wall which looked real so she must know what she's talking about and I couldn't be happier.

All those years my AV had me trapped with shame and guilt, telling me I couldn't trust anyone and no one would ever understand. Well guess what AV? You were wrong. Today I looked someone in the eye and told her all my deepest darkest guilty secrets and she didn't flinch. No judgement, no shock. I stripped away even more of your power today AV and in the words of the legend that is Soberleigh - be afraid AV. Be very very afraid.

Congrats to all milestoners and love to everyone. 24 more hours please xxx
Kenton, that sounds fantastic. I love how you are so positive on here, and how much support you offer to others.

Thanks for being you Kenton!!

Exclamation posting pics PLEASE READ :)

Hi guys
I got a message today from Tech Support about my signature image..so I thought I'd pass it on to everyone.

If you're posting a picture link make sure you change the http to https before you post.

Just add an s to the end - it should work fine.

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.
Its in the interest of site security.
I'd ask that everyone do this in future.

I'm starting here in The 24 Recovery Connection group as cos this is a pretty image heavy thread.

Greetings fellow travellers on this winding road towards freedom.

One of my old drinking buddies phoned me up last night. Not sure why. I think it was to tell me how awesome drinking life is. It's funny, now I'm not on Facebook anymore I've started to forget about drinking life. I mean, heavy drinking life. When I go out now it tends to be with normal drinkers and no one seems to end up vomiting in a hedge or asleep on a train or crying in a bathroom or missing in action or fighting about nonsense. After speaking to my old drinking buddy last night I can report that heavy drinking life is still very much alive and well. It's still going on most Friday and Saturday nights. Call me boring (and all my old drinking buddies do) but I'd much rather skip through this life with all you guys and Red's elephants than stagger through my old one.

Congrats to everyone celebrating a milestone and another day of calm, 'no dramas' sobriety. 24 more hours please xxxx

I'm very happy for Yukon making it through that hurricane!! What a blessing
Thank you V for the good update on SL
24 as continue to rest on day off
Thanks newcreation. It did feel a bit like that, a new creation, as I watched the sun come up over the horizon this morning, you can see for miles here. Stunning.

I still only get brief glimpses of reality and I'm not sure I like it. But I def don't like where I was. WHAT WAS I THINKING...

If I got on with it, this paperwork would be done in 2 hours but I prefer to um and ah and think some more and etc. I just might be able to keep the place I rent if I take some action. I'm willing to work hard I just don't know where to start cos all I specialised in was addiction. I can't actually do anything.

I wish my HP would just step in and run the show. I have no problem with him telling me what to do. But this "just do the next right thing"? Just blimmin tell me.
Oh, well that's easy - do the paperwork and send the letter.
Oh, I might have had a lightbulb moment
The next right thing is the boring and responsible thing.
I hope there's some happy joyous and free for me in my future....

Grace and mercy for you today NC, and for all my lovely sober and getting sober friends across the world.

Good Morning Delilah and I hope it's a fine day for you and your little ones and my regards to your mother.

I was just thinking being charming and putting on a nice smile, or just running away, isn't going to get me out of these consequences of my behaviour, even tho i was drunk.

I shall just have to stand up and be counted and face the hard words with my HP and an honest attitude. At least I know what one of those is now
