G'Day


How is your day going?

Its early spring here and warm today
Its Friday which is kinda nice
I am at peace with myself and the world right now, which is a frigging miracle.

How you doing?

Its getting cold here. Winter is well on its way. And it is coming fast.
I am ok today. I just got over a minor panic episode. Orientation for school totally scared the **** out of me.
It took some time to come down from that fear. But I am better now.
So as always. That fear turns into determination.
I am in the process of making some cheese fries.
Cant get high to feel better anymore. Might as well eat something good.

I'm so glad that things are going well for you, Kev. :ghug3

It's early Fall here and absolutely beautiful. We have had sunny, warm weather for weeks now and it's been great for long walks.

whats changed really is my attitude Anna and doing what I can and letting the rest be.

The walks sound lovely. I am enjoying this area again now that I am leaving, I don't know how that works

It was warm and beautiful working with a view of the beach all day. I am in a "I should pinch myself and see if I am dreaming" oh so content state.

It's amazing, really

G'day, got another hour before it's Friday here!! Still warm and sultry in the evening here in Eastern North Carolina. I remember my time "down under" fondly. I spent a year in Adaliade as an exchange student a little more than 20 years ago. I have fond memories of my Aussie friends, who were very warm and welcoming.

Life in general is getting better for me. A little more than 5 months clean, a new job, more time with my son, not much to complain about. Hope you're doing well. Take care.

It was a beautiful fall day. Beautiful. I was busier than heck. And sometimes I wonder how I ever had time to drink....seriously!

Great Thread!

G'day!

It's a little chilly in WA at the moment too, but the sun is out and the wildflowers are in full bloom, so spring has sprung.

I am having an eventfull day, I just got offered a job interview, that is a little scarey for me as I have been a stay at home mum for the last 8yrs, but am up for the challenge of a full time Job.

Auschick.

Today I am doing well, kind of basking in the miracle of recovery today, it has been 3 years + 1 day since my last drink. I can remember well the fear of the unknown that morning as I walked into the detox facility, the weather was nice, like it is today, but I was a mess then, full of fear, self hatred, self pity, anger......

Life is good today, far from perfect, but peaceful and serene, the promises continue to come true today.

Thanks for the thread mate! Glad to hear you and others are doing well.

Man sobriety rocks!!!!

been listening to and watching parts of Cats in particular Memories - the lyrics are a real message for me. I want so much to feel alive again just like I did when I first heard that many years ago.

I realise I have got so used to struggling that its become norm, not sure how to chnage this just that I want to, so this is a start.
