Hello SR Family, I've been letting work and life get in my way of checking in daily,
I'm happy to say I'm a Grateful Alcoholic taking it 1 day at a time.

Hi Rainman and thanks Dee for the new thread and your kind words on the old thread. And thanks Abcowboy, Sunny, Suze and Quitter..... this thread is so awesome. And so is sobriety. I wouldn't be identifying my insecurities and challenging my unhelpful thought processes if I was drunk and stuck in denial. That's for sure. It's funny, when I stopped drinking I hoped for freedom from hangovers, improved health and better sleep. I got all that ..... and so much more. In fact, I'm learning that everything I hoped for was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the gifts of sobriety. I'm a completely different person now .....and I can't decide whether sobriety has changed me or whether it's woken me up. Either way, it's put me on the right path and I'm so excited about where I'm heading. I'm a work in progress but I'm moving forward with hope. 24 more for me please xxx

Thanks Dee

I love your posts Kenton, so full of wisdom and humour. I always get a little bit excited when I see you’ve posted, and I make sure I’m in a comfy chair (preferably with a cup of tea or coffee) so I can read them with full attention
A bit like a small dose of my feelings when a new Marian Keyes or Liane Moriarty book comes out, but on a more regular basis

Ooh, another brand new thread. I've already committed to 24 hours today but I will use this post to reiterate my commitment to that 24 hours period.

I'm having a bad day mentally and when I am mentally not great I am at my most prone to relapse. I used to rely on alcohol to shut my head up which did not help things.

I will stay strong.

Keep fighting the good fight my friends.

lovely Leigh

Well infected hand post surg (4w ago) has floored me this week, plus the side after effects of the gen anaesth used for it(had 20 procedures- with lots of anaesth 3.5y ago- messes my brain), Very sore, very tired- but thankful I can face all of this without using codeine, or booze- or any nasty chemicals (except coffee and ciggies). The concept of recovery is real- as real today as it was when I woke from a coma. Without it I am nothing, with it- I am growing. I remember to do the HALTS stuff, especially rest-eat-hydrate, and I know what NOT to do. As natural as breathing and just as necessary. There is NO event, thought or feeling which booze will ever, ever, EVER help me.

So 24 more for me and support to y'all.

I like Kenton’s posts too.

24 more for me, please. It was a peaceful weekend; I got extra sleep , and now I want more of that. PJ luckily, periodically reminds me of the importance of HALTs...I’m taking care of those and feel much better. Sometimes picking two letters and improving those make the others turn over on their own. I’ve been quite annoyed with myself for needing extra rest and good food. Easing loneliness is underway. I haven’t been Angry since I really took care of HLT this weekend. I’m a new person!

Why are some of us so punishing and harsh with ourselves in sobriety? I really should sleep more and eat well. It’s easy. Why do I feel bad about it like I should be scrubbing something or providing disaster relief? I’m learning.

Kenton, my family has too many high-achievers too. I’m the lazy black sheep napping in the sunshine while everyone else is productive. I get it!

Off to sleep—love
