I originated near Mississippi... but I'm about 3000 miles away, to the west, nowadays.

Got the rope, LR. Lots and lots of it. Enough to reach Perth, if you want some, Kez...

& don't mean to intrude, but what else you doing besides drinking? it helps if you got something else to think about too... actually, i've found, the *more* things you have to think about, the easier it is...

anything'll do...

NP, LR.

Fletch, re-join September? I don't think you can un-join, so technically you're still in anyhow. Not that I see a problem with you re-joining either.

Kez, wha'cha taking? I'm in 'uni' too (or however you say that...), not doing anything productive though, not tonight at least.

You're not the only one surprised how easy it is to be drunk & educated.

I'm a senior too (last year, whatever) and I didn't even try to get sober most of it. And I don't have bad grades, to say the least.

Don't worry about how your hubby doesn't understand... just love him and understand that he might never understand. Addiction is hard to see from the outside, from everything I can gather here... Kinda like how from the inside, it's hard to see how 'a couple beers is all' is a viable goal for a weekend.


Political science/ behavioral science. How am I going with it? DK what that means, but I'm doing quite well... working on grad school apps. Ugh.

Well a small milestone for me, I have two weeks.

I was lying in bed last night and reflecting. The same question just kept popping into my head. How the hell is this my life? I remember the first drink I ever had and the last, the ugliness of all that was in between over 20 some years is why im here and why I choose sobriety for the next half of my life.

Thank you God for another hangover free morning

'Small'? I've done 2 weeks 3 times in my life... and the first time was the first 9 years of my life.

Congratulations, truly.

Day 0 or Day 1 - I'm not sure but this is it. It's quit day, and a work from home day. I work from home all the time. The closest meetings to my house are at least an hour away, so I am going to try to attend an online meeting around my work schedule.

TB - It's actually nice to know you are a woman too. Reading the big book yesterday was like - really antiquated in terms of this being a male problem. I probably should have read version 4 but it wasn't available in kindle format and I needed it pronto.

Really, really, really y'all that can't sleep - find melatonin in the vitamin aisle. I know you don't want to put anymore crap in your body, but it is something your body makes itself in a gland in the lower part of your brain. As you age, it makes less and less of it which is why really old people can't sleep. We used it in trials for military pilots to help with circadian rhythm problems as they changed time zones across the world and it is super safe. It can cause you to have some very odd dreams, but if you take it 30 min before bed it does work. I'm a lightweight and need about 600mcg, but my sister in law takes 3mg without problems. At least try it. Sleep deprivation isn't going to help anything.

Course that's easy for me to say on Day 0 or whatever, but it has worked in the past when I stopped drinking for short periods of time.

Wish me luck.
