I'm no longer doing a daily sobriety count, but am still sober and that's what 'counts'. Sober since valentine's day anyway.

A tired and weary Wes is here this evening. Been working myself to the bone a lot here lately. That's why I haven't been around much. But overall feeling pretty good. Glad I got some time to get on here tonight instead of having to get that shower and go straight to bed.

Glad to see you enjoyed your trip Hardwired. Good being able to go on vacation and have a good time without the booze huh? Glad to see you back, too, and doing great. Congrats on 53 days man!

Glad to see you still keeping on Least. Keep up the great work! I'm proud of ya and glad to be here in the Class of Feb with ya.

Hope the rest of the Class of Feb is doing well this evening.

Wes

According to the sobertime calculator I have 41 days today. I'm grateful for my sober time, just wish I felt better today. Anxious and depressed, tho it would be a lot worse if I were drinking.

Wes is finally here for roll call again. Wanted to say hello to all of the Class of February. I've been busy, busy, busy...so haven't had as much time to be around here as I'd like. I really miss the place a lot. Staying sober and today is day 57 for me. Just a few days behind ya Hardwired. Congrats on two months bro!!! Hope all are doing well. I miss ya all and hope to start being around more often.

Hi Class of February!
I thought I'd jump in and say hello since I climbed back on the wagon in February. Congrats to all of you in this little boat!

Hi all,

I think today is day 36. I will have to check my calendar. My goal was to quit for 30 days, but I am just taking it day by day and have not felt like drinking. Sometimes the thought of having a beer or a drink sounds good, but then I think of all the negative affects that it has on the body and it just does not seem worth it at this time. It's amazing how much weight I have lost in my stomach. The thought of putting in all of those empty calories seems like such a waste.

When I started I said 30 days too, then 60 days, now I have extended it for life. I am so glad I was able to experience life this way SOBER! it is really what life is about!! today is 62 days and I have lost 5 pounds at least,
and I am not overweight at all. 5'11and now 184lbs.
It's funny because I was on a hard core diet when I was drinking and kept 190 or above. now I can eat anything and I'm losing weight.
I'll take that trade!!!

Wes is here for day 58. Thought I'd come check in here for a few minutes and see how everyone is doing before I get back to work and get busy again. Hope all is well. Thinking of and praying for everyone. Keep up the good work everyone! We can do this together!

I think it's day 37, feels good. I just splurged on candy and chocolat pudding (AGAIN) but I'm doing much better with the sweets I can go almost two days without...gee, that reminds me of my drinking habits, seems there is a pattern here. Anyway what I don't understand are my headaches, nagging headaches almost every morning. I hope it goes away soon!
Glad to see that we're still a certain number here, I had planned to count how many started in February, never got that far, oh well so much for projects....

There are a few threads on SR about eating and craving candy once you put the drink down. It does even itself out -think how much sugar there is in alcohol. Someone told me that "you can't get done for driving under the influence of too many sweets" so try not to worry, it may be your body adjusting rather than a replacement drink pattern.... and a big Pat on the back for 37 days off the booze.
