Cool Newcomers Stay Sober This Weekend Thread 4/30 - until

Staying sober on a weekend was the toughest thing about first trying to understand I had a real problem. During the week I had routines that told me where to be and what I must do.

The weekends, however, where a very different story. Free time was a double edged sword. Looking forward to it all week and dreading it come Monday.

The weekender thread is here to remind you that living sober is possible!!! In fact its desirable!!! No... Really!

Join us with a simple "I am in!". Post it or say it to yourself but know you are not alone.

*Rind Ring* That's the sober bell of freedom calling out to you!

If you need immediate help this weekend remember the main forum will get you the fastest responses.

Otherwise grab a seat on the sober weekender bus, a magical bus that has room for everyone that wants a seat! (or spot on the roof)



Welcome to your sober weekend Team!!!

Welcome labgirl! One of my favorite things about the weekend now is I get so much accomplished. My house hasn't looked this good in years.

A smoothbore weapon for firing small shot to kill birds and small quadrupeds, though often used with buckshot to kill larger animals.
