Day 1 (again) but grateful

Good morning. It's Halloween, it's day one for me again. It's a hard day in some ways and a beautiful day in others. Just saying hi, so glad I found this. Grateful for some clarity this morning.

Welcome Soulful

Its a hard day for me too. An anniversary of a loved ones death. But we're here and sober! And there's the promise of Halloween candy tonight

Jo and Wilderness, we can get through today together. Day one always hurts, but I know that day two is better. And from there, it's back to our path. Thank you for checking in, I'm feeling lonely and helps to hear I'm not alone. You aren't either 🙌🙌🙌

In a way whether sober or not its day 1 for all of us. Its a new day and another chance to make the best of our day and our selves. Sobriety is definitely the icing on the pumpkin

It's closer to bedtime now and I know that waking up tomorrow (((clearer))) will feel like a miracle. I know that feeling fades again, telling me it wasn't so bad, nothing will go wrong, you won't care in the morning, etc etc etc. That inner dialogue is so dangerous. It won't reopen for a few days, but I know it will, it always does. Any advice on that works be so greatly appreciated!!! And thank you all.

some good ideas here for that soulful - particularly 'playing the tape through' and urge surfing
