Tony13,

Good call on the biking! I am going to be taking advantage of the long days by working in my garden. Always tons of fun! Unless it starts raining.....It sure is great having sunshine after work.

Lulu, thank you for your post. I am 13 days sober and realizing how my drinking has taken its toll! I am allowing myself to get as comfortable as I can in my own skin and now dealing with the emotional part, trying not to beat myself up over it. I have started AA meetings and for me, it is helping quite alot. One day at a time, I am certainly not up to "warp speed" yet but I have more than hope, purpose, that this is the plan for me, for I am powerless and that is freeing. Welcome and continued success!

Day 7. I am so tired. I've made it to Day 7 before, but only a couple times in the past 9 months or so.

3 weeks here

Just celebrated my 3 weeks of beer-less existence today. Started exercising this past Monday for the first time in many years; I noticed this really made me sleep better. Anybody else exercising, if so, what's your routine? I am just walking for 2 miles a day right now. Hope to start jogging in a few weeks, but plan to take it slow. Hope everyone is still here and doing well!

Hi all,

Well, I'm a relapser who has made it to 30 a couple of times, but never to 45.

Today would be day 5.

Hope this is the only class I join.

Hello everyone! I'm Lindsay...and I'm currently on day 3. I'm definitely a binge drinker. I had an awful binge this past weekend...and am more determined than ever to kick alcohol to the curb. Nothing good EVER comes from being drunk! I have increasingly became an awful version of myself when I'm drinking, and no longer want to hurt the people that I love and do things that I regret terribly. I want a better life for myself, and that cannot be acomplished if I'm drinking.

So HI to all, and I look forward to reading everyones posts!

Welcome Lindsay
Glad you're here! I think a lot of us start out binge drinking, I know I did. It eventually progresses to everyday drinking if you keep at it long enough.
Hang in there! Lynx

Well--day 10 here (I think it is...) Anyway finished my step 4 inventory...will go over it next Tuesday with my sponsor. It hasn't been very easy...but my faith and determination...plus willingness and maybe even desperation to do "whatever it takes" to not pick up a drink..certainly has helped me get it done.

Shorty,

Gawd, lawnmowing must be the greatest temptation of them all. For me, it would be easier to try to go sit in the local bar and try to drink coffee.

Last weekend, my wife mowed the lawn. Somehow, I don't think that's going to become a regular thing.

Maybe I'll sell the house and buy a condominium. Or dig out the lawn and put in rocks. Or....

Hi guys--
I'm joining the Class of March too--day 2 for me (3/29) ! I woke up feeling great. The hard part is tomorrow (Monday) coming home from work and not stopping at the liquor store. I had to alternate liquor stores so the workers don't think I'm a complete alcoholic--what a joke !! The crap we go through to hide our disease...

haha, it's so interesting to me that you guys have such a strong association between mowing the lawn and drinking! For some reason, when I get any form of physical excersize, the last thing I want is alcohol...it's almost like my body rejects even the idea. That's really the only time I EVER reject the idea but...anyway...

Today is day 7. 1 week! It's amazing how much better I can feel...emotional AND physically...after just one week. I've been sleeping better, working out a lot, eating healthy, i've been more productive, nicer to people, anddd spending a hell of a lot less money.

Hope all is well with everyone!

I guess I'm class of March, as well. I keep thinking I quit in January, but I had a one-night relapse March 5. So March 6 to March 29 makes me... (geesh. I don't do math in my head)... 23 days. Yes.
