I just have a migraine, Peke. Not fun, but I will most definitely be OK s ❤️

And please honey, stop being so hard on yourself—this is a work in progress, and you need to give yourself points for how well you have been doing, so much of the time.
This stuff is hard.

So onward together, my friend. ❤️ xx

I still have a sober mind. Thatís positive.
I had 38 days last time I drank. Sitting at 193 today. Its ok and you are going to kick butt. It does hurt when people you care about do not seem to reciprocate but you know what? Screw em. You do you.

Off the mast:
Thank you so much! I needed to read this. I truly feel like I can get right back in the horse. Because my mind is ďsoberĒ. Like know what I was doing for fun these last thirty days. And I was having fun being sober!! I remember this. So I have hope. I canít let one individual set me back like this. Iím not invisible!! I have friends. Ppl like me. Heck, I think I like me, too.
Thank you for what you wrote.

Venus, I forgot that you get migraines. Omg. Thatís so debilitating. A friendís mom used to get them. She had to have all the lights out in her room because even the light hurt her head. I hope you feel better soon. Sending you a hug.

Thanks Dee. I would never dare post here while drinking. I think itís bad when ppl donít hear from me. I know thatís when Iím in trouble! Staying here is where I belong.

Hope everyone is doing well.
RAL, have you unpacked from your trip yet?

Peke, stay positive and focus on what you accomplished in the last 34 days. As Dee said, it's hard to change life-long habits. It takes some patience and time and you're getting there.

Morning, everybody,. Didn't get very much sleep. I'm extremely thirsty but they wouldn't let me have a measly 125ml glass of water,

Hi Peke-
My cousin told me when I quit drinking (a whole 46 days ago) that if I have a slip, it's just that, a slip. Get back on the horse and keep riding. It's probably an AA cliche but I don't know, being so new to it. Anyway, the horse is saddled up and ready to go

Thank you David!
I appreciate this reply.
Iím feeling less sad, now. I know that I can do this.
I missed my workout today. That was frustrating. I could have done something- at least weight lifting. But I canít find my fitness tracker.
Night everyone

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 :-)
Thank you Sam!! I appreciate what you wrote. See you in the fitness section.

Morning all

suze-I hope your head is better by the time you wake up today

Peke my dear friend - it's great to see you posting. We all know how you feel, we have all been there 30, 60, 90 days even years then picked up again. It's making it back here that counts and learning from the experience. Dee's wise words.

FF- hope you have a better day today.

Day 44, Back to the office. I WFH yesterday Peke so managed to get my unpacking and laundry done! Feeling goof and amazinly despite my weekend away I have lost a pound!

90 days sober ODAAT. If your quitting for any reason but yourself chances are you will fail. You have to be quitting because you want to quit not because someone else thinks you should quit. I am quitting for me myself and I.

Hi all. I'm on day 9 and was already getting wobbly, until I noticed that my blood sugar and blood pressure were taking wild swings. In the world of reality, I know that the only way for these things to level out is more time away from booze. It is now my motivation. Also, for the first time, I am starting to latch onto the idea of one day at a time. I had always dismissed it before, but it is sinking in now.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Bobdrop- one day at a time is what I’m grabbing onto right now. One hour at a time if I have too. That’s my one mission. I’m still here. We can do this.
