You run with it Ken..........I understand your thinking and you are right. It's just the way you just blew in here...that's all, no hard feelings. We are all in the same boat.

My apologies. Sometimes I'm like a bull in a china shop. I just want to quit and drag as many along with me as I can. Nobodies gotta sign up if they don't want to, but I'm willing to keep track of all those that do.

Hey VC and Ken,

Personally I don't see this as a competition, with a scorecard and daily tallies. This bus offers me support and fellowship with people who are struggling with their alcohol use or continued non-use. I do love the daily check-in plan, just no numbers.

If I gave up trying, I'd be drunk right now. But I'm sober...just for today.

Don't ever give up trying people....

I have mixed feelings on the number thing, but probably the reason I do is because I don't wanna feel like more of a loser than I already would, if I caved. Having said that, I get the accountability thing...it's incentive, and incentive is good. So, what the hey...count me in. Day 11 here. And no worries November peeps...if you fall, we'll always be here to prop you back up for another go at it. No judging...that's not what SR is about anyway.

No judging. Just accountability and motivation and support! Wow! 11 days! I haven't gone that long in forever. You set a great example!

Great job, Jo...and a belated happy birthday to you! Catch up with you soon...

Gingerblue..yeah, the thoughts creep in. Mine are at night too, around 8 or 9:00, as I never drank during the day. Kids are in bed, everything is done..time for "me" time. Unfortunately I like to get drunk during "me" time. It's a tough habit to break, but it's breakable.

Thanks Ken! Regarding your accountablitly plan..I won't worry about it till you wanna start putting money on it! lol

You know what, Vicious, trying just doesn't cut it.
I believe in accountability, but I also believe trying is a wonderful human attribute. It's when we stop trying that we fail.

With that, please take me off your class list, I don't think this style is beneficial for me. I will find other areas of support on this site that will work out better for me. Best of luck with your class.
