Welcome to all the Susies.

I just ate a bunch of fun size Snickers Almond candy. Because it's the perfect candy, and I was eating it for sao. I think it cures colds.

Yeah. That's it.

I'm listening to this crazy/awesome pastor online. He makes me laugh and he makes me think and I have fun watching and listening to him. It's hard to find just that right person to talk about this stuff.

It snowed here today! Didn't stick, but it was pretty coming down.

Another sober Saturday in the books. I'm going to watch some NCIS and maybe Nurse Jackie. I'm on my second time through Nurse Jackie. I'll probably stop watching her before the last season. That was depressing. It didn't really jump the shark, she was just a too-believable addict. Great characters in the show, though.


*edit. Oh wait!! It's Friday, huh? Dangit, Dee, now I'm doing it.

It will be hangover-free, which is the best part! I'll check back in after work tomorrow.

Hi Weekenders! Thanks to BiminiBlue for relaying the info on this forum. It’s a great idea.

Just polished off two chocolate eclairs that I didn’t need to eat. I don’t normally eat sugary stuff and certainly not dessert items. Guess it’s the sugar craving since it’s been 15 days since I had wine. Yay!

??? I can’t see the eaglecam screenshot. Odd.

Good evening. Had dinner out, now home and going to bed in a few. Unapologetically delighted to be right here, sober, right now. Already looking forward to my morning coffee. See you then!

Morning everyone, Welcome to Weekenders all the newcomers, I have always found this thread a great place to hang out and get inspiration from people who are having a much better time without booze/drugs than they were with them.

HaS it sounds like you are doing great!

I'm glad you avoided getting sidewinded biminiblue, intuition perhaps.

I'm still in bed here (8am)-under the weather unfortunately.

For BixBees and anyone else who couldn't see bb's screenshot of the eagles here it is again.
