Hello


Hey guys it me, you know the one falling apart because of a particular white wine? Well I asked an admin if I could change my name, because I couldn't stand to see that word every day, so here I am, learning how to fall together, as opposed to the behavior of my past, which caused me to fall apart. So, yep, it's still me. Lol

I guess I sort of was internally having an identity crisis, I joined back in jan and couldn't find a way to give up the Chardonnay, now I have and I don't want to be the person that joined way back then and couldn't just get it. Here's to the new, 6 day sober Sarah, aka fallingtogether! Xoxo

I'm so happy you changed your name--I could taste it every time I saw your nic which wasn't so good if you know what I mean! :/

I think it is a good idea to change your name instead of identifying with your favorite wine.

I hope you have a meaningful meeting tonight. Good for you Sarah.

Love

Thanks guys, I am just hoping that this is a step towards a new better life for me. So far the steps I am taking are working, and although I have my moments, every night I go to bed sober, and wake up sober in the morning, it's a great feeling! Thank you!

It really is a step towards a better life. There's nothing you can do drunk that you can't do a million times better sober.
You'll do it.
