Saturday morning and you know what that means...

Sober Saturday mornings never get old.

I'm glad you came back HAS, stick around and kick that negative voice to the curb. You're a good person who gets off-balance when alcohol is in the picture. Good job tipping it out. Today is a new start, don't get more.

Good to see the new names in the thread...and good to see Soberwolf and Snufkin!

That Husky. I'm sure I've told the Husky story before but I'm old so I get to be repetitive.

I was in Georgia visiting my parents. They rarely get any snow, but it was snowing. They lived in the middle of nowhere. A pickup truck pulls in the driveway with a Husky in the bed and a lady gets out and asks us if we know where the Husky lives, "It's snowing! I'm worried about him out in the snow!"

It's so great to see such an active thread, HAS looks like you have lots of support here. Hope you keep coming back. It takes time, as you know. As it was said here, never quit quitting.

Congrats on five years wolf!

My air conditioning consists of an old recycled refrigerator that needs a new gasket.

Hi love....'fraid I can't catch up....so I will just say hello and good morning and good afternoon and good evening Aussies.....and man oh man what the heck happened to Hawthorn AFL lovers....which is only me I guess.....always amusing when a top team gets killed by the bottom team in footy.

And hello dear bim.

Hi Venus,

Mrs. Dragon and I watched our first AFL footy game the other night. We found it a bit confusing but enjoyed trying to work out the basic rules just by watching. Then I was suprised to find we have some fans at work that know the game quite well.

Good morning US side!! Feeling way better today and itís a sober 39 kinda morning!! Slept ok and the funk disappeared with some good rest... so crazy how the AV funk catches me when Iím tired. Cool thing is I recognize it now more than ever and I donít have to drink but rather divert!

Not sure what the day holds but for now itís checking in here, doing my morning mediationís and prayer and hitting a meeting... and not living in my will for the day! The rest will be fabulous whatever it is!! Maybe some World Cup, maybe a book, definitely some outdoor life! Have a super Saturday or Sunday pending locations!!
💕🤗🏋🏻*♂️

Good Morning everyone and wow....this is such an active thread!! This is just what I need, so thanks for being here!

Getting ready to head out on my trip in a few hours. I have bookmarked this page for support if things get "wobbly" for this "weeble", but I am feeling pretty good about things. I was picturing myself at the beach bar with my friends (they only have one beer and that is it) and thinking that I will be drinking a nice refreshing iced tea or some other "mock-tail."

All have a great Saturday!

LHW, Good visualization. Don't forget to walk it off if you get overwhelmed! Shake it off, Champ!

Always nap time on vacay, too.

Well done, Minion.

From my personal experience Mantal- people in rehab/early recovery who are excited about new milestones, new info, new possibilities are the ones who succeed. WELL DONE!

The rules of AFL are simple- one person gets the ball..and the other side try to kill them.

Hi Snuf, very good to see you around! I'll be checking in on how things have been for you on your thread (and of course in our little Aug 2017 class).

Well, my parents are coming over to us for dinner. Both are very light drinkers (one glass of wine per occasion) and so too Mrs Haddock. There will be wine around, but I am just not having any!

Huge leg of lamb just prepped for the Weber charcoal braai. Starting now already as its being cooked for at least three hours.

Have a great sober Saturday, weekenders!

Thanks Gilmer, I hope so! There's going to be a lot of leftovers though, in need of recycling.

My computer is fixed! (Hopefully). I just have to let the battery fully drain naturally and make sure it charges. If that works, I am in the clear! Woo hoo! I thought it was gone forever. I'll be around more once I get all my stuff back in order. I have a lot to catch up on.

Welcome to Weekenders bunchie! I would say the best thing you can do at the weekend is to be as active as possible, in ways that do not involve drinking obviously. This will make it easier to go to bed at a reasonable time and minimise the cravings window.

Welcome too YCDT2, I hope your computer does work.

I have just been asked by a tourist how to get to Laycester Square. You have to feel sorry for visitors, almost nothing here is pronounced the way it is spelled because the spelling of name places is so arcane. Btw they mean Leicester Square - which is pronounced as if it were spelled Lester

I do not feel sorry for them Sao. Sorry. Just no.

When I was in Paris many years ago, I was extremely amused by a French waitress who was outraged by the horrendous attempt an Aussie country boy was making whilst ordering food.....

I will never forget....he looked at her, so confused and said: SEAL VOO PLES?

She said "merde" and walked away.
I will say that after laughing at him I helped him.
