Yeah, Angelina / Dee. I don't know what to think, either.

Kinda like the first time I got censored, back around the turn of the century. It's the kind of thing you hear about, but figure can never happen to you...




Get better, Dee. What's up with Australia these days? Everybody under the weather down there, or just coincidence.

Thats weird bubba.
On a side note, tomorrow is my first day of the work week, and my first time out of the house since i decided not to drink. I work in construction out in the sun and heat all day. It really makes me thirsty. >.> At around lunch everyday i usually start drooling over that after work 12pk. So nervous...

About a month ago, I wrote a fairly long list of all the things I wouldn't miss if I was sober. And it's all done up in pretty format on somebody's blog. I'm half-asleep and in my first hours of sobriety, so I gotta look into this better tomorrow.

Just google my username, it's about halfway down the page here. "Things I don't miss," or so.


Take care all y'all. I really gotta pretend to sleep... the real kind ain't in my near future, but I got a ten hour day tomorrow so I gotta rest up somehow.

TB.

LR,

Best of luck.

Remember to bring something you like for lunch, so's you don't remember to go for that 12pk... and no, I'm not talking about beer.

Hang in there Lonelyranger....you can do it! Feeling nervous is understandable, but you don't have to drink. Keep moving forward. Try to focus on the here/now and not worry about tomorrow. All we have is today.

Wow (in the words of lonelyranger lol) that is very weird TB...hope you have a good sleep.

Hey Lonelyranger, good luck tomorrow, I can imagine working outside in the heat would make it tempting to drink a 12 pack afterwork. Just get a case of your favorite pop or something and pig out on your favorite junk food till you get over the hump...that usually works for me. Good luck!

Welcome to everyone I missed.

Day 11 for me. I'm feeling better than I was on friday. I went into the doctor and it turned out to be the flu not detox symptoms I was having.

Cherry,

how ironic.

I always tell people it's the flu... it never is. I'm immune to flus, I think. Eat your vegetables, and get better...

Congrats on 11.

I know right. That's the excuse for why I'm always in bed to. It was just weird since I'm mostly a ritalin addict. It's been more severe depression than a physical detox. But I started to feel better for a few days and then really sick. And hey I really was sick.

I wish you the best...

I'm no good at the emotional side of things, so in a way I'm kinda glad it's mostly just physical for me. Depression sounds like worse Hell than another bottle to me... Truth is, I might not even try if that was to be my fate.

(Note to people reading: Not condoning not getting clean, and if you were right here in this Mojave Hell of mine, you'd know how serious I was about that... I'm trembling and can't sleep and some other stuff)


Man. I gotta put legal notices in my posts now. Grrr. Love all y'all.

Take care now
-TB

Hi cherry. hope you get to feeling better.

Guess i can go ahead and call this day three huh?
2 am gotta be up for a 10hr overhaul at 5...
Its been ruff as expected no sleep at night only during the day.

Guilt is main thing i fight with.

The ironic thing is i cant really remember things i do when i drink, but i sure can remember all the bad things i did when i drank...>.>

LR,

Might not be such a bad thing... right now me & my brother have a 'situation' with a guy who doesn't remember what he does when he drinks... which includes things like throwing heavy objects and threatening people (many of which I wouldn't recommend threatening--not us of course lol).

Heck, we didn't even know the guy last week (and the geographic location in question ain't that big), then he went wild on us.

'Course if you don't drink, you don't gotta worry about stuff like this...

Just another reason.

Stay strong,
-TB, awakened again by a ridiculously drama-filled Sunday night.

You got a very good point. Always think positive.

'Course, I'm on the west coast, so it's 3 am. I got a long night ahead of me.
