I think counting is needed. That way we know how much hard work we have put into this, And how much we are throwing away if we decide to leave.

I'm with Least--counting can make it hard.
I am also with Hardwired--counting shows us our victories.
Take both, and mix 'em up. Don't obsess over #'s, but revel in them when it helps.
Day 9 for me--and it is going well. Each day that passes I feel better physically, and am working on thought processes that steel my mind for the challenges I will face maintaining sobriety.
Just want to let the class of February know that together we can do this.
Best to everyone.

Congrats Hardwired on 12 days!!! I'm on day 7 for my. 7 days healther...in kinda of a numb state right now, but it will pass. I'm guessing cuz I just ate and took some vitamins so I should be feeling better before too long I hope. Keep up the great work!

Today is day 13. At the AA meeting last night, when I walked in they all knew what day I was on. I believe in AA, it truly is a miracle!
I don't feel like drinking at all, Someone said It was removed from me by God. I believe it.
Thank God!

Day One here and the withdrawals are reminding me how bad alcohol is for me. I never want to go thru this again. This has got to be the last time, I have to succeed this time. I am so sick and it serves me right cause I did it to myself.

Checking in class.
Least, it's hard to watch you post while you are being so hard on yourself. Of course you "did it to (your) myself". But harping on yourself isn't going to make it easier.
Try to relax. Maybe one day at a time is too big at the moment. Let's go one hour.
I just hate to see you beating yourself up--we all make mistakes--it's how we react to them that makes us stronger, and more able to fight this terrible illness.
Hang in there, Least. I'm thinking about you.

Don't beat yourself up too hard or anything. No one's perfect. Just keep trying and it can be done. I have completele confidence and faith in you. Just keep working and trying. I'll be praying for ya!

Great job in making it through that day one Least. Keep up the great and hard work. I'm rooting for ya! You got all of us as your cheerleading squad to help you make it through this. Just be like the little engine that could, but instead of telling yourself "I think I can" tell yourself "I know I can." Don't know if it'll help but it works for me so far. Just an idea. What you do or don't do with it is up to you. Hope I've been helpful, if not I'll let ya beat me in the head with a shovel later to take out frustrations. Okay guess that was some bad humor lol but keep it up Least! I believe in you.

Hey, all. Went to post in yesterday, but instead of sending it I previewed it...and lost it (the database went down, so the message said). I'm in for class of Feb, too. So what's our mascot?

Happy Valentine's Day. Love to all.

My personal mascot is my two dogs whom I love more than life itself. They want me to be sober so I'm going to the local ER to get help to break this damned addiction.

My mascot is my dogs' need to have a sober "dog mom".
