Crossing my fingers

Hi everyone! Just checking in...haven't had a drink in over 20days..Lost my license last week(90days)..First thought was 'Have a drink,can't go anywhere..I've been looking for a 9-5 job to have some structure/extra cash. Turning in applications within walking distance,ect..to no avail. "positions been filled,going with someone else,ect"..Today I got a call back for the perfect job! It's a 10 minute walk and across the street from one of my AA meeting locations..Waiting on the day/time to go back for my 2nd interview now...merry xmas!

good luck with the job DR and Merry Christmas.
Glad you're recommitting to being sober.

Its good to use those experiences - if you face stress or disappointment again - and most of us will, how might you handle it better next time?

Thanks,everyone! I don't 'need' a job, as I'm self-employed. The 9-5 is just a part of my sober plan. As a business owner, it's pretty crazy how the job hunt goes nowadays! I had no idea(been 20+yrs since i've job searched) how hard it is! Kinda makes me want to revamp a few of my hiring policies. Just got home an hour ago from my night meeting.. Met my 1st 'new comer' and it was a great meeting!
