Nocoincidence56... Looking back on my life after I got sober, comprehending the enormous gravity and significance of the miracles in my life, realizing, in my mind, that all of this defies luck or coincidence.... so..... the 56 is the year I was born....

Great thread.

Kjell is my biological fathers name. He ran his car into a telephone pole when I was 1 1/2 years old. He was drunk. He didn't make it.

I'm on here and in AA in hopes I don't follow in his footsteps (I've got two duis which both resulted b/c of totalled cars).

Mine's easy enough - I'm, most definitely, imperfect, but I changed the spelling because I love my 3 cats

Hugs and prayers!

Thanks for the laughs, Ann. You have a very good sense of humor.



I was fooling myself...the alcohol was fooling me...and besides, the word booze is in there. I thought it was fitting.

Pretty much self-explanatory I guess. ☯ I like Zen philosophy and ❤ cats, ☞ hence Zencat.

I have a harley sportster 883 custom. I started calling it Snarly when I had some issues. Ironically, I meant to type Snarly 883 but hit 2 before I realized it. Somehow fitting.

I do more "financial planning" now but miss the good-ol-days of the 90's where day-trading stocks was the norm.

I've used the same name on most message boards for about 10 years now and who likes change LESS than an addict?

Ghostly – I am interested in the paranormal. Really didn’t like Ghostly, but didn’t want to use a screen name from a non-related site. Actually, really would of liked to of used something totally different but couldn’t think of anything.

This thread was great! I laughed so hard at many posts. Was funny many of you were in the same boat and just couldn’t think of anything great so settled. Oh well…I guess once we pick it we’re kinda stuck huh? In that case…I like my screen name!

Lucy Ford sounds like my real name but it isn't (though my mom and dad fought forever about naming me Lucy; mom even jokes that's why they're divorced).
To understand, say Lucy Ford out loud. Or better yet, lucyford.
Sounds like Lucifer.
My favorite artist, Atmosphere, frequently refers to the devil/addiction/hardship as Lucy Ford, a female devil. And I'd say I feel pretty devilish when I use.

wow - alot of creativity at SR! Love everyone's names!

I wanted to pick something recovery-ish, but everything seemed too long, and so typical that I figured it would be taken. So I choose Artsoul because 1) I'm an artist (painter) for a living and 2) I love anything that has to do with spirituality. Should've added music to that, too, as it's my other love. Oh, and cats and of course my kids and............

I just remember it seemed really really hard at the time due to a bunch of drinks on top of a hangover...

My Great Grandfather was an alcoholic. My Grandfather would pull him out of bars, literally. At the age of 42 he stopped and never had another drink. My Grampa's name was Winton. I'm hoping that this forum will be my Winton. Corny I know, but 100% true.
