I'm so in! I've been sober 24 days!! Feeling awesome! Had a nightmare last night that I drank some vodka and in the dream I was so upset with myself that I immediately spit it out. This was the 2nd night in a row of dreaming of alcohol. Have had no bad cravings this week to drink but I'll get through them sober when they do come.

Way to go Angie!

Saoutchik, that looks like a set for Aliens or some other sci fi movie. I can understand getting the creeps.

I'm in, but I'm truly, straight-up terrified when I think about the long three days off. :/ I'll be checking in (or more likely, lurking) a laaaaaaaaaht on here this weekend.

LilyMarie, I found it helped more to post than to lurk. There are also a ton of sober things to do around Chicago this weekend. What are your plans?

Yeah, it looks like a docking bay on a starship to me.

I'm still figuring this one out. I'm unfortunately passing on a BBQ because I know it's just going to be a big ol' drunkfest. I'm hoping to spend a lot of time outside and on the beach with a book and tasty (non-boozy) drinks. Heck, I even kind of hope it will rain one day so I have an excuse to stay indoors and watch movies.
Time to review 101 Things to Do Sober!

Hi passengers.

I'll just take a seat if I may. Haven't been on a bus in a while......but should be a good ride.

Really want to make it through this weekend, first on my own for some weeks, Today is day 52 and need to make day 56 to get to the eight week mark. Hitching a bus ride might be a better way to get there than just trudging along...

A good weekend everybody.....

Congratulations on 52 days Canguy.

Behan I hope HRH Chuck isn't being too weird over there.

Ozzy Insightful as ever

I'm sure you will find something fun to do LillieM

Ruby/Solarion that pic was taken about a year ago when it was brand new - it's a bit more "lived in" now .

Normally there are several people working in it and it is full of bus or truck but when I'm on my own that it takes on bit of a sinister feel about it

Will be my first sober Memorial Day Weekend (or any weekend) for at least 6 years. Maybe 10. I can't remember. lol

I'm looking forward to passing days 6-7-8 in the comfort of my home and local pool with my kids. I can get some sun to help replenish my vitamin D insufficiency from years of drinking.

I have plans to work on all my cars and finish up my yard work. I'm always industrious during the day even when drinking every night but this weekend seems kinda special. No work. Good food. Good company. No drinks. I'm ready!

If I've told you kids once, I've told you a thousand times. Keep your hands to yourselves!!! Grrr! Ken, no nudging Behan!

And Behan, you are, unfortunately, going to be saying that a lot if you have more than the one. Like several times a mile or two. Sigh.

Canguy!!!! Good to see you and congrats on Day 52. That's great.

Saoutchik, if it's more lived in looking it would be in the original Alien, not the second one. Alien was dirtier and grittier.

I have to fill out my vacation request forms. It's sitting here on my desk and I'm procrastinating. Agh! What alcoholic doesn't procrastinate? True to form.

Ruby lol!! I can't wait to say, in mock outrage: "anymore of this carry on and I'm turning the car around!"

Best of luck with your first sober memorial weekend Mr Chilli. Sounds like you have a solid plan and are focusing on the positives. Keep posting, especially if you feel yourself struggling at any stage.
