Stop the Press

The children left. I was alone in the house. I cried. It was totally silent and empty. I felt the feeling. You know the one. I wanted so badly to go and buy some wine and spend my afternoon anaesthetised.

but

I RANG MY SPONSOR

Unheard of. First time.
I don't know myself any more.
I am really starting to get some hope now.

And I just replied to you in F&F

It's super to see you!

Do you have a meeting planned soon?
Ask another woman out for coffee after.
This is a grand time to hook into the
fellowship.

The new you can enjoy
sober sucess and serenity!

Blessings

Thanks Carol and Chy. Carol - was it you who said I was aloud to do bold and italics or does that just come with the number of posts? Anyway, it's really cooooool .

Can I do colours too? Oh - wow. That has totally made my day.

Off to my BB study meeting that starts at 7pm. My sponsor is coming to give me some moral support. I am so grateful for all this. When I think what my will would have had me doing right now, I can only amaze at what is happening to me. It is not of my doing. I know that.

Thanks guys and thanks for my hug D. Here's one for you.

Indy - not sure my will is in action these days.

I keep doing things and then thinking "Who did that?".

I have to go to bed now. I hate doing all the lights out stuff when I am on my own. Got the icky lonelies again.

I have enjoyed the site this weekend.

I have a busy week ahead but I will pop in from time to time when I get a chance.

Goodnight everyone.

(((((((((((SR)))))))))))

Hi K. It's not me at all. I am like a new person sometimes these days. It helped and I stayed sober. I don't know why I couldn't do it before. It's no big deal but I just never could pick up that phone.

Karim - I think we get the features after a certain number of posts or something. It's way cool so keep posting!

Stone - thanks so much for stopping in. That means the world to me. I already forgave you. Thanks for the hugs. I am a triple hatter. Alchie, Codie and grew up in an alcoholic home.

Hi Thiskidknows. I have not met you before. Tell me more.

Dee - I'l do that. You too ok?

Creekie - I'll write soon. Good to have you back. xx
