Somehow being called an idiot didn't offend me at all.

Day 9 for me today. I feel great...However, that "maybe i'm fine, maybe i can go have a beer or two and some wings after work" thought has snuck into my mind on a few occasions today. I've had to REMIND MYSELF that no, I cannot! I can not drink socially, I can not drink at all. The temptation is killing me though. The only way for me to overcome the temptation is to keep busy after I leave work, and go to the gym. The feeling I get from a good workout is a MILLION times better anyway!

So yes, I'm struggling a bit today...but staying strong.

Day 28 for me...I still get cravings but they seem to be lessening. I also fight the cravings with chocolate, lol. I thought maybe if I quit drinking beer, I could lose some weight, I even started walking 2 miles a day, but weight hasn't changed much, too many brownies.

I meant that literally. I was not offended. Those were some bad puns.

Day 10! And it's my birthday today...25! It will be the first non-alcoholic birthday I've had in a LONG time. CHEERS to that.

I'm feeling great, though. I've felt very tempted the last day or two but have resisted. I feel as though all of the "false starts" over the past couple months really have taught me something...made me stronger.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!

Hey, Lindsay...Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make this birthday one to remember. Someone once posted (sorry, don't know who to credit), that they were going to refer to this year as 200MINE. I like that!

Class of March

Hi guys,

I joined yesterday and today is day 2, so even though today is April 1st I think I also belong to the class of March . I am also hoping that joinng an online community will help with this. I do not want that life anymore. I am tired of hating myself and wondering what I may or may not have done. Finding little injuries all over myself in the morning, the crushing hangovers and cursing because my money seems to have vanished.

Anyway, that is in the past I hope, and this is one day at time.

Hey Marchers, Hows it going, Its getting pretty lonely in my class, the class of Feb, I started the class on my 3rd day sober. Today makes it 60 days for me and I feel strong. I hope you guys don't mind if I drop by from time to time, Seems like I had a lot of drop outs. Hopefully I will see them here in this class.

ahh...I'm really, really struggling today. I want to drink, badly. My brain is playing tug of war. I'm sitting here at work watching time go by...thinking about how "wonderful" it would be to go get completely **** faced. I hate this! I know I can't, and I WONT...I just want the need and desire to go away.

Hey Marchers - just checking in; how is everyone this morning? It's rainy and foggy here and both my bosses are working from home. The "perfect" drinking weather/situation, grrr...Not that I need an excuse. I'll get through the day - hope you all do too!

I'm on Day 16 too Angelina. Here's hoping it's just the first sixteen days of some awesome sobriety.
