Sober October seems like a good plan. I ruined my life last October and the court date is in a few days.

You were very wise to do this ff. I really respect how hard you are working on your recovery—you have quite a few sober days now and hopefully you can keep building on your success. I find when I am feeling stress but not choosing to drink alcohol, my anxiety comes out in stress eating. Is that similar to why you drink the excess water?

Hey everyone! I am definitely in for a sober October. I love the month of October all the way through the holidays. A joyous time, but also a time to be mindful and vigilant.

This is looking like an awesome class so far! I am in with 94 days today.

Starting work orientation type stuff this week.... this is going to be quite the new adventure for me. Send positive thoughts. I am just going to try to stay out of my own head and be grateful for new things to learn and do.

David I attend AA meetings on zoom and get a lot out of them. Great job on your step one. It sounds like a really trying situation with your Mom. I am so glad you shared as it is great motivation for me to not follow her down that path. I won't so my son's and daughter never have to be in your shoes.

Good to see you Bobdrop!

So good to see all of you!

I'm in on the commitment for a sober October.

Great steps FF, in telling the nurses about the water. My thoughts are with you.

Thanks Citrus, you're spot on. I think it was her situation that snapped me into my moment of clarity in August. I don't want my sons in this situation. I want to remain in a position that I can keep them from being the last house on the lane. I know my mom can't help her physical situation, it comes to us all. But she shouldn't be destitute- she's just mismanaged her affairs because she was a drunk. I will keep that from being my story- and break the cycle.

This group is great, thanks to you all. I'm going to my favorite fellowship meeting this morning.

Hello all-
This is my pledge to have a sober October. Day 166.
Attended church service this morning, it was very helpful, the sermon/message was said as if it was directed at me-spooky, even. I won't get into it but I will say it was quite a moment, in a very good way. I know everyone has different views on religion which is great, but I see this as another way to cement my commitment to a more purposeful life without alcohol.
Yikes, that was a lot, haha.

Hi Bobdrop, and David--good to see you both here.

FF--I am so glad you told someone about your fluid intake, tbh I was very worried about you, I know you know this, but drinking that much water is so dangerous.

Hi Citrus-enjoy the new job, that's fantastic.

RAL--so glad you enjoyed your trip, and did it sober! Wonderful1

Peke--the fact that you went--you showed up for your friend and son-that's what matters. Good for you, and the confidence thing? I'm still waiting too,haha, but I think we all are like that in one way or the other. The main thing is you were a good friend and people appreciate that.
Hi Ove.

I'm sure I have missed people. Thanks again to Dee for another new thread :-)

I am in for October. One month at a time. One day at a time. One hour at a time.
