Well...it's November here
Are you Australian Wildman74? LOL

Thanks for starting the new month - we usually wait until the month starts tho - for many years my sobriety date was always 'tomorrow' too

like others have said, whats wrong with trying an Oct 31 date?

I'm going to join this group, though my current DOS is 10-23-09. I go into inpatient treatment on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd, so I won't be around SR for a little while, but at least I know I'll be sober the whole time *halfhearted smile*
And when I get out, whether it's 10 days or the full 21, it'll be November when I get out, so this is the group I will be returning to.

Anyone that has or is quitting this month will join this group and you guys have your own little circle of comrades. I liked it when I quit because I made friends with people that I still can turn to if I need some individual attention and can help them in return also.

SR is great and this is just another piece of the SR cake.

Yeah that sounds really helpful horselover
i've had the thought a few times today of drinking but fought it. Feel too ill today after the weekend and it justs hurts my stomach now to drink.
Is it ok to say this? Not sure.

Say what you want... we're all alcoholics/addicts here anyways .

I technically stopped in October, but I couldn't stay quit through most of October, so I think I'll come here and join y'all instead. Start from the beginning...

Welcome Pixie, and yeah, you can say that . We've all been there...

I never fear relapse in the first couple days of quitting, not if I can make it a day. That's about the only time I know for sure I won't drink, 'cause I still remember the pain of quitting, and it doesn't make sense to go back to it. Of course, a couple more days, and, well, look at me. And the mess I'm in. I have a short memory. I don't recommend short memories.

Take care,
-TB

Thank you both
yeah i never want to go back to the way i was drinking everday. It took me months to finally stop that and get it to fridays only. I can't believe i went on my 1st binge at weekend. I had bad craving friday afternoon so i started. Then went back to shop 3 for 10. It was halloween. I love the taste of it. I love how the 1st ones make me feel but then i can't stop until it's all gone or i'm sick and pass out. I was only going to have one bottle and a nice meal. From now on i can never have alcohol in my house. I have to get back to buying cartons of fruit juice and hard sweets again.

Day 17 put to bed. Think this Monday evening was so much easier than last week's Monday - the post-workday urge for alcohol is *huge*. If I can just stay away from the store or anywhere where wine may be lurking . .
Happy November to all.

Juice and hard sweets... mmmm.

I hate flus y'all. Still sober. Thought I might post that now, JIC.

Although I'll allow I'm more determined to get through this sober than I was an hour ago.

Going into inpatient treatment tomorrow at 1pm cst. So, I won't be back for a long while. Nonetheless, I will be back, all that much sober

I'm not gonna lie; I'm nervous and scared. But I know I need to do this! I wish I could be online here to support you other November-starters. Well, I've got a little over 12 hours to add support - I'll do the best I can!

I have no idea what to expect in inpatient.... I know I get to bring my own pillow though! Yay! O.o However, I do know that there is, of course, a no-laptop policy...... I hope I can find SR-type folks where I'm winding up. The support here is noteworthy, for sure.

Take care other November-ites
I'll try to stop in before I go off to treatment. Best wishes!
