Thanks Dee for the thread
​​​​​​
They're trusting me with a refillable vape again. So I'll save a fortune. It's much cheaper to refill than buy disposables.
​​​​​​
Aside from reading random stories in the back, I've been working through the main section of the AA book. On the We Agnostics part. I dunno really how I feel about God. But you only need to be willing to believe from what I can gather.

Binge ate a little this morning because I had no cigarettes and vapes. Big back of crisps and not the healthiest breakfast. White toast, no eggs. Added up to 700kcal. But I'll skip the potatoes at dinner since I had 255kcal of crisps.

Really looking forward to my mother's visit. Haven't had a visitor in nine days when my father came. Supposed to be in court today for public intoxication but my solicitor knows I'm here so no worries.

Not doing group today. Too anxious. I'll do it tomorrow.

Looking forward to my 2pm ativan I'm sad to say. :/

Love this quote as it describes how I have approached life for way too long. Focusing on living more in tune with the second approach.

ďWe have a choice. We can spend our whole life suffering because we can't relax with how things really are, or we can relax and embrace the open-endedness of the human situation, which is fresh, unfixated, unbiased."
-Pema ChŲdrŲnĒ

Pledging for today. Day 353.

Good morning!

Today is my first day back in the pharmacy! Iím excited to see my co-workers, and Iím feeling very confident in my ability to handle my responsibilities. The shift in mindset between today and 18 months ago is INSANE.

I will go and be helpful and humble and 100% clean/sober. Iím so grateful today!

I wonder if I'll get weekend leave or even discharged on Friday. I dunno how I'd feel about that.

Happy Happy Lixie, Another year wiser

FF, looking good. You need not have the God of the authors in the big book. Just something that makes sense to you.

12 months for me and you said it! INSANE and wicked cool to boot. I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming this.

Runner, Pema, books are fabiolus instructive reads. D T Suzuki Beginners Mind book layouts my practice.
Good work having a recovery program that is working well for you. You know what it takes to stay sober even during the crap times,

Up early as always. All is well on my end.
Thank you for your support

Happy Birthday Lixie.
Hi everyone. Sorry I donít have a lot of offer today.

Not feeling well. Ate a lot of bad foods yesterday evening. Not ďbadĒ (mostly ramen soup and blueberries). But I ate until I felt sick. Then I expelled the foods. Not good. Please I donít want my ED to come back. But the good news is that I havenít touched laxatives. Thatís really positive. Just so darn upset with myself. The ED hasnít been an issue for a long time. Why now??

I canít weight myself today. It might be bad and in that case Iíll get sad.

Good news! Today is day 24.

Hi everyone

Hope the visist went well FF

Hope work goes well TC

Many congrats on 1 year Zen

Sorry to read you're not feeling great Peke. I hope you feel tomorrow after a decent sleep.

Had such a long day, Drove round half the country dropping a car off picking up another then dropping that off and picking up the final one. then set off home then realised forgot something and had to go back. was out from 5am till 6pm so pretty darn tired now. TV seems to be re working ok with new firestick. fingers crossed I can get back to netflix tonight. sounds pathetic but it relaxes me.

Hope everyone is ok x

I wonder if you can get the Aussie show RFDS (Royal Flying Doctors' Service 2021 series) over there? It is SO SO good, and I really think you would like it.

And I hope you have a lovely evening. 💗
