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
Love to see those sober muscles growing.

Good morning SR

24 more for this crazy lonesome lunanatic alcoholic


Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.

—Joan Gilbertson


Pain, repeatedly experienced, indicates a need for self-assessment, an inventory of our behavior. Honest self-appraisal may well call for change, a change in attitude perhaps, a change in specific behavior in some instances, or maybe a change in direction. We get off the right path occasionally, but go merrily on our way until barriers surface, doors close, and experiences become painful.

Most of us willingly wallow in our pain a while, not because we like it, but because its familiarity offers security. We find some comfort in our pain because at least it holds no surprises.

When our trust in God is high, we are more willing to change. And we open ourselves to the indications for movement in a new direction. Each of us must find our own willingness. Each of us must develop attentiveness to the signs that repeatedly invite changes in our behavior. But most of all, each of us has to travel the road to change, singly. Changes we must find the courage to make will never be exactly like someone else's changes.

Courage to change accompanies faith. My fears are telling me to look within to the spiritual source of strength, ever present but often forgotten.

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.

I can only speak for myself.....but I don't understand.
An s after the http in the image box? That didn't work for me....just posting this in case I'm not the only one who didn't get it.
