didn't go anywhere to get anything, and in a bit over one hour I"ll have one week sober! I'm starting to feel like a person again instead of a bundle of frayed nerves.

You guys are great like part of my family. I love SR it has brought all these cool people together and is the biggest part of why we can be sober.
I can say if it wasn't for SR I never would have made it to my 3rd day.

Least 1 week Nicki 2 days going on life
Wes day 16

for all of you and the class...

Day nine here and having terrible cravings - not for a drink, but to get drunk, to get numb. I've prayed to God to take away the desire to drink but so far He's not helping me. Before my relapse I was doing so well, had cravings sometimes but not a problem. Now I think about it all the time, wanting to 'not feel' anything.

So I'm asking for prayers and positive thoughts that my desire to drink will be removed. I need all the help I can get.:ghug

Wes is here for roll call. Working on day 18 today and hopefully going to a meeting tonight. Looks like rain today, which I'll absolutely love if the clouds let it out. There's something about rain that's so relaxing. Hopefully it'll take my mind off of being out of cigs because I'm about to go crazy for one lol.

Least, I'm praying for ya and have all the positive thoughts in the world for ya. Please don't give in. I believe in ya and have faith you can stay strong. Be strong for yourself, for your pets, and for us. Make it on through and I'll come make a special dinner just for you. Anything in the world you could want. Well, wishful thinking could be a good thing. Might be a helpful incentive. Stay strong Least, I know you can do it!

hang in there least. you've done it before, you can do it again, now.

wombat05 and i are working on day 21.....in other words, 3 weeks.

in the immortal words of homer simpson.....woo-hoo!!!

thanks to all that supported me in the early days. my heart goes out to every newcomer.

i see myself in every one of them in their day one posts. yes, the first few days were freakin' awful. but each day gets better and better.

i went to a college basketball game yesterday and thoroughly enjoy being able to remember the whole thing since i was straight.

but it hit me squarely in the face of how many times i've gone to those games half or fully trashed. what kind of stupid **** did i do around my friends. it truly humbles me when i think how many times i've embarrassed myself at such functions.

not pulling my **** out or anything that bad....just the slurred speech and glassy eyes. all i can do now is show up to the games in good shape and let them decide.....wow d is not trashed today.

thank god for this place and my fellow class of february members. let's rock this month out fellas.

Hey, class. Starting day 7...boy, I am amazed! It's really hard for me right now, because the stores are open and I "know" I can go get one (a BIG one!) and still get things done later...yeah, right. Because you and I all know that I'll just want another, and then the whole day will be gone; and what if I do get called in for an interview? "Uh, no, I can't come in today...can we schedule for tomorrow?" Sheesh.

Anyway, that's what's keeping me home right now...the hoped-for interview, and SR as well. Thanks, all!

Not afraid--no, no--nothing like that.
I will admit I've been a bit sketchy at posting the last week or better. I can honestly attribute it to the fact that I am rolling out on 3 weeks here today, and am a lot less possessed by the thoughts that I am not going to drink.
It is getting easier!
Remain vigilant, Class! We can do this. I never thought being sober was an option. The thought just plain didn't occur to me.
Now--I'm clear-headed, sleeping like a human being, and acting like one.
Big cheers for all! Stay strong.
(And I promise to be a better poster, I owe that to you all).
