Hi everyone, Just a quick hello.

I'm still sober. I didn't have a good week with my arm, but its feeling better now. I have my speaker meeting tonight and get to see my sponsor. Maybe my husband will go tonight. He hasn't gone with me the past couple of weeks. He's been taking naps instead. LOL I told him he missed out on a couple of good speakers the past couple of weeks. Oh, well. At least I'm there. That's what's important.

Barb

Hi guys, I guess i better write this down. For myself to read too. I'm feeling weird tonight. I don't know why.

I am soo bored tonight. Maybe i should go to bed early tonight. That's one behavior i haven't changed yet since quiting drinking.

We had a guy speak tonight that has 41 years of sobriety. That just blows my mind. That's how old i am. LOL I can hardly remember what he talk about. I was bored with him too. That's bad.

I'm 3 weeks in a few hours. I seem to get weird around this time. I don't want to drink. I can't drink again. I'm tired of starting over every few weeks.

I'm going to put a picture on here. maybe that will cheer me up.

Barb

Over 3 weeks

Hi guys, well I made pass the 3 week mark. Today is Day 22. I might just get that 1 month chip after all. The weekend is almost over and the weekends are always the hardest for me.

I've been struggling all summer over this. I kept messing up when i got close to the 3 week mark. My HP is definitely holding my hand through all this. I'm just staying in the day and that's what's been working for me.

Barb

Thank you everyone. It was a nice surprise seeing all these posts here today.
I'm sober another day. It gets a tiny bit easier everyday. Sometimes i wish I was over a year sober sober like i was in the 90's. I remember that feeling. I want it back again. Hopefully one day at a time I'll be there again.

Congrats to Sax and calfritch on your days sober. Keep hanging in there guys.

Here's all of us newly sober people hanging out together. :ghug2

I like it too Parent. I'm going to change it when I get past 30 days.

I'm still going strong everyone.

Hi Guys. Just a quick note. I haven't wrote on here in a couple of days. I'm still sober and coming up on 30 days. I can't believe it.

I don't have much time to write. i have to put my little chickens in the oven. I told my husband that i wanted Cornish hens this week. I been working on my personal journals this week and reading all the stuff I wrote last year. I talked about depression in my older journal. I've been editing them and getting them ready to put on my CD. I finally figured out how to put my documents on CD. I always get amazed at all the stuff i still learn on the computer.

Hi guys, Ohhhh. My tummy. I'm so nervous and have all of these butterflies in my tummy. I've had butterflies the past 3 days. LOL I haven't been this nervous since my first day back in AA.

I get my 30 day chip tonight at my home group. My sponsor is going to be there too. I'm getting it a day and a half early only because i don't want to wait until next Saturday. I know I'm not drinking this weekend and I'm very excited.

This 30 days was so hard for me to get. All summer i was struggling and that last drunk done me in. I finally surrendered.

Barb
