Hey folks, I like to see my name on the list, and I love being sober, in recovery and learning every day.

With that in mind, Iíll take another 24 hours of sobriety please. I feel like all I want to do is run away right now, but you cannot run from something in your own head. Thatís why I drank and took drugs.

Time now to stop running. Iím not scared anymore. Iím incredibly angry, disappointed and humiliated by some of the things Iíve said and done over the years, and justified to myself and others. But not scared. Time to put on my big boy pants and begin to grow up.

I have a huge amount to be grateful for, although Iím prone to overlook those things when I begin to feel sorry for myself.

At the moment, all I can do is try to be kind, gentle, considerate and loving. These are all qualities that Iíve always had but I never figured out how to apply them to myself. I must focus on the here and now instead of what ifs and maybes.

The only amends I can make right now is a living one, by just trying to do the next right thing and be the best person I can. God will never give me more than I can handle, and the bad days will always wake me up to the things I wasnít paying attention to (Robin Williams).

Iím off to bed with some chocolate and Russell Brandís Ďrecovery Ď.

Peace and love
James

(((James))) ❤️

I had this conversation with my favourite guy in the world a while back....how do we begin to be loving towards ourselves? Act as if we were our own best friend.....if James was your best buddy, what would you say to him? Something like well done mate, gosh you have put in a top effort, you need to be proud of yourself. And chin up, good things will happen soon enough....and you just need a bit of a relax, sit down and watch a movie and stop for 2 hours, cos gosh man, you are doing really really well.

Something like that maybe. xx

Kenton, I agree on advice you gave NGB & especially the line What we think we feel! Thatís a tough situation, but it will be a while before things are resolved. Remember to give time time. Got a similar situation since my son is living with his grandparents; but my parental rights were stripped from me!! All coz of booze damn. Itís not over till God says itís over so hang on brother

8:07 pm in California and checking in for another 24. This week seems to be going by very slowly. Not sure why, but many of us at work today felt like the day was twice as long as a normal one!

Hope everyone is doing well!

❤️ Delilah

Hi,
We skipped taking the Tender to Catalina today. Tomorrow we'll get off the Ship to go into Ensenada for lunch. We've had the best weather!

My Mom is never feeling quite good enough. But, she drinks too much alcohol. Whatcha gonna do or say ? ME? The Serenity Prayer and give me strength Universe.

I'm absolutely in for my next 24.
