Day 4, 24 more please.
Would have been 8 but I had a few beers Monday (so not worth it). I'll be sticking close. I want this to be my forever streak.

Thanks everyone for the kind and inspiring words. It means a lot.

Feeling a lot of resentment towards myself for the things I said and did. Kind of got me to thinking, if the tables were turned, how would I feel about someone I loved behaving in the way I have, and how much forgiveness would I find in myself? What would it take for me to begin to forgive them, what could they do to prove themselves?

This is tricky stuff and itís bothering me.

Also, I came home from work today to find 1; a letter from the mediation people who my solicitor has made a referral to on my behalf. I have to attend an initial meeting to discuss seeing my children and theyíll contact my ex partner to offer her an appointment too. Last time I went down this road, she agreed an appointment and then cancelled it at the last minute.

I was still drinking back then so hopefully the fact Iím now clean and sober and can prove it might carry some weight. Iím not optimistic.

2; A letter from the court regarding the fines I received due to breaching the restraining order by texting my children, this is an attachment of earnings order to the tune of £725. Theyíll take 65% of my wages until itís paid. Very grateful to have my job, and because of it, the ability to pay it in full tomorrow. Thatís a huge thing for someone like me, and it stings a bit, but the beauty of sobriety is that Iím able to. Iím going to stick it to Ďthe man Ď by paying my dues and moving the hell on.

Iíd like to check in for another 24 hours of freedom from the insanity.

Getting it done, one day at a time.

Peace and love
James

James love......yes, you are sober now, so this whole mediation thing is going to go very differently. Keep safe, look after yourself, and do this one step at a time. It will work out.....and you deserve it to. ❤️❤️

Boy, my body is feeling like it should be lots later than what the clock says. Not that I did anything strenuous today....just one of those long days I guess.

I'll check in for my next 24 , then maybe go "Travel" on Trip Advisor. Kinda of little hobby I guess, no long flight needed either!

Kenton and Rose, I’ve not watched the Capture, I did wonder about it but now I will! I’m watching Dublin Murders though! I love catch up for some box sets, great for insomniacs!

Kenton, I’m pleased you didn’t get caught up in all that negativity. I feel sorry for your friends getting caught up in critisism’s and negativity, they don’t realise what they have until they lose it. Sad really.

Pinky, happy 80th to your lovely mum. She’ll be so proud of you. ❤️

NGB, I think everything takes time, sometimes lots of time. Empathy for how your partner is feeling may give you some insight and you’re doing everything right. Don’t rush it, concentrate on your recovery or as some wise person on SR told me ‘look after your side of the road’.

I’ll have 24 more while I’m here please.
