Arrow You have the Power Sober Weekender Thread June 11....

Hey Sober Team!!!

Don't believe in the power of what does not exist!!!

We create our own worlds through our thoughts. "I want a drink!" is a thought. Nothing more. It does not exist!

That means you and you alone have the greatest power in that can say no to the thought. I do everyday. Many many times a day sometimes. Other times I forget and I go about living my sober life.

*Ring Ring*

Welcome to your sober weekend!!!!

IN! Back from the OBX with the middle brother. Had a great time down there. My youngest brother is a monster kite boarder. Pretty cool to see your (40-year-old) kid brother doing 20-ft high jumps over the surf holding a kite.

I (unexpectedly) whooped the middle brother at bowling yesterday, so he wants a rematch. Then we are going to go see San Andreas. This evening our sister gets here. Then the youngest is coming on Saturday for an all-sibling (4 of us) reunion.

I'm as well. Got my little brother and his family coming from NC to visit us at the beach this weekend. Lots of sun; hopefully; beach, baseball, good food and family time to go around!

Hope everyone has a great sober weekend.

I'm up for it. Turning 40 on Sunday. Really don't want to be a drinker after this milestone. This will be my first non drinking weekend in 11 months. For nearly every week for this time I've said I'll stop, failed every time. I have a plan. I will execute that plan. Failure is not an option and I won't fail.

Good morning! I'm in.

Non, sounds like you are having a good time. Oh, the things we can do and admire, when we're sober.

Work day for me. I realized my daughter's birthday party will be a week from now so I have to clean the house this weekend.

You can do this. We can do this.
