Neo,

Guess I never bother to tell people when I relate, and yet I like it when they can relate to me...

I like your 'real-world' attitude... take what you need, leave the rest. And although we're from different countries, I've been following you since I seen you first, 'cause we have a similar non-traditional (I'm being polite) background. I remember you had a story about being on a train drunk once, and I swear, you might have stolen that story from my brain somewhere... Scary, if you think on it.

Just mentioning it 'cause it occurred to me it might matter... not that it has to...

Take care,
-TB

Thanks thirtybubba.

It does matter to me as it gives strength to the part of me that knows and wants to keep sober. Stops that crazy part of my mind that tries to sabotage things when they are going good from talking too loudly...

Increase The Peace xx

Neo,

You know, I never thought about it until tonight, but I wonder how often people just don't acknowledge what they appreciate... all of us.

Honestly, I don't think I've ever had anything to respond to you with (although I'm not lying about following you), mostly 'cause you're attitude & mine are often the same... which to me means don't bother saying anything, it's been said. But in a forum-style 'world' like SR, that's not necessarily the best thing.... I guess. What do I know?

Don't let that 'voice' get too loud... I'm too recently there, and if you have any questions, PM me. It ain't worth it... I can remind you if you feel the need....

Take care,
-TB

jazzz i was thinking about this the other day...i used my drinking to behave in a way that i thought i wanted and to be the person i thought i wanted to be...in my case i wanted to be the tough guy that had no emotion and a bit of a lone wolf...

i have found out, well am beginning to understand that i am a caring, compassionate, loving, thoughtful, nice guy...but still even just writing that i get the urge not to as i dont want to come across (for want of a better word) as a cisssy...when really these traits are the best to have as opposed to selfish, arrogant, obnoxious, self centred...

chuck into that mix the fears, insecurities etc and...well you get it i'm sure...and then getting back self confidence and self esteem, am i shy? or aren't i? well i am in this way but not in this way...so?!

it'll all come out in the wash:-)

one thing i have noticed, as i posted in July 09, is that i am starting to think, after saying some things, why did i say that? it's almost like it's an automatic response that has been learned because of the old behaviour...weird?! e.g. before if someone said would you like to come with us, we are all going to the pool this afternoon...my answer would be why would i do that pssshhh? but now yes i would like to come please:-)

hope that makes some sense to someone...
