Holy WOW Part 3

Well this is a must seeing this is how Part One started.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is odd with its twists and turns,
As everyone sometimes learns.
And many a person turns about
When an individual might have won
had he or she stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with yet another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than it seems
To a faint and faltering woman or man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he or she might have captured the victor's cup;
And one learned too late when the night came down,
How close he or she was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And when you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst, you mustn't quit

((((Vic)))) sooooo happy you're back.

Ok two new Don't Quitters to add to the list, and a big welcome to you.

NeedToBeSober Day 9
TexasDawn Day 52

Awesome job on your sober days.......yipppppeee more happy dancing.

Nope Not Quitting

Welcome to all the newcomers on the bus. We are so happy to have you here. Newcomers are the life blood of this bus, of course we can not forget those who have been here awhile who help guide us.

Has anyone told the newcomers about what we do with the duct tape? Maybe later when the time is right. Man, we sure went through a lot of duct tape over the years. Let us not forget the importance of all purpose duct tape. It serves many purposes.

Not Quitting Today

Hope Great to see ya on da bus

MyGirls Everytime I said I think I wont I did....
YOU are so right, they is a different mindset when you
use and think with more powerful language like I WONT QUIT TODAY
NEEDTOBESOBER Keep on doing the sober dance,
good on you with 10 days, it just keeps getting better.....
LeAnne Yea, I got the duct tape a few times and Vic used to give me the Extra Strength seat belt also

Denise YOU were always in charge of the Duct Tape,
can you post some and explain to all DQs how it can be effectivly used on this bus?

Arura Good morning to you,
I saw a program when they took the busses off the road,
at least ya still got those black cabs going!!!!!!!

All DQs, everytime you post, you help keep me
and perhaps someone else on the bus, NO quitting today!

I echo what Missy said, Renewed Hope. Please keep in mind the purpose of this site and share your experiences related to recovery from alcohol.

Cravings can be really intense when they hit. I hope you continue reading, reaching out and learning new ways of coping with life on life's terms. There is a way out. There is a solution. There is hope.
