I'm committing to a sober weekend.

Like the almighty D says jump in to the thread and share, help each other and mozy through the weekend
I love to mozy thru the weekend, anything to make it last longer. That's another reason why drinking is off the table, it would only make the weekend flash by and the work week a miserable experience.

So I got to chatting with someone I've known for a few years and found we shared some common experiences. He blogs about his experiences and thoughts on his site bright side philosophy. Here is one of his posts about his anxiety...

He sounds like an interesting guy. Some good insights in that blog.

Btw. The First rule of Philosophy. For every Philosopher there is an equal and opposite Philosopher.

The Second rule of Philosophy. They are both wrong.

Thank you, Dee! That was a very encouraging post!

I’m in.

MB, I recommend you think of this new indignity as an opportunity to “hone your research skills.” I’m serious.

You are engaging in research. It is a valuable skill. It will demonstrate that you have the ability to be thorough.

Omg thank you Dee! You're like the kindest person ever!

Yeah now that it's all printed I'm kinda happy with it ... All I have to do now is to hang my work, annotate sketchbooks and that's me!

Morning! Someone said in another thread that they figured they could start the weekend early and just start drinking.

That is the whole reason for this thread. That's why it starts on Thursday - to give people who are struggling a safe place to spend ten minutes reading instead of ten minutes drinking...hopefully once you've read through this thread the urge to drink will have passed.

Same thing with the negative thinking. If I don't grab on to a thought, it doesn't get its hooks in me.

Sao, that penguin is awesome! I've been going to the zoo this week as therapy for my kitty grief. The animals at the zoo never disappoint. In the hundreds of times I've been to the zoo, I see something different every time. Talked to some folks from London yesterday in one of the exhibits.

Thank you Gilmer! I go from hating it to loving it , but considering how much crap I went through this semester, it's not that bad.

Hopefully I pass... Fingers crossed guys, we're getting our grades next week, the week after the degree show and then graduation yay. So... it looks like I'm gonna bore you all with Uni stuff every weekend.

The pic of mountains instead of leprechauns.
We both contacted work and got next week's holidays cancelled so back to work Monday.
The airline company changed our tickets to Oct for a "small" fee. So all is well.

Where are you MantaLady...?

Thanks for asking vman
I'm in! Just skulking round the house today, bit down in the dumps after last night but taking it as a lesson that my plan needs a little more fleshing out. I am flying to croatia with my mum early saturday morning for a week and can't take my laptop with me so will have to use my mobile to get onto SR. Rehab in 11 days though and just want to be there now. Glad you managed to get the holiday stuff sorted vman, bet it's a relief! xx

Hoping for a sober weekend this weekend. Back to day one for me. Hating myself a bit right now. The longer I go without, the more disappointing the failure is.

Hey Lipstuck, sending you so much love.....and maybe you could see it a bit differently? It sounds like you are getting better and better at making this new life a permanent choice....with some blips....because we are human.....and every time we fall down, we get back up a little stronger and wiser. A little more prepared for the things life throws at us....just like learning to ride a bike.

Now, I must learn how to ride a bike.....ha. I can't do that.
