Oh, I hope your leg is OK now Gilmer. It gives a new meaning to sliced loaves.

Thanks for the support weekenders, it is appreciated.

My day was OK I guess... I was the one with the bad attitude today. I was giving everyone a piece of my mind. Being sober, I have more of it to spare!

Morning weekenders.

Really crappy night. It's 05h40.
Been awake basically since 01h30.
Tried reading then netflix but impossible to sleep. I'm still coughing and sputtering. It was a good dose I had this time round. I empty my lungs every morning... Yuck.

Not looking forward to the day ahead.
I'm going to be a nervous wreck.

Positive Mental Attitude...

And Coffee...

Yes Manta they’re delicious! Venus I can’t believe you haven’t had a curly wurly (thanks for the correction Vman and I hope you’re feeling better soon)

Hope you have a better day today/tomorrow? Sao. There are quite a number of oxygen thieves on the planet.... But then maybe they were having a bad day too, I’m trying to be less judgemental but sometimes it’s a real challenge...

I just wanted to share this AV story from this morning that I told on the undies thread... So, the AV tried a new trick today. It sounds like a long description but it all went flitting through my mind in an instant and was rejected completely with a laugh and a shake of my head. I’d just come out of a morning yoga class, it was 9am and I was walking down the road, feeling all limber and fit and healthy, to get a coffee, when a bloke wandered aimlessly out of a pub on the corner, obviously at least half cut already, judging by the stagger he had up (I’m not judging him, this has been me before) and the AV was almost dancing with glee, going to me, “yeah, how cool, nothing wrong with him, not a bad life really, he obviously doesn’t have to go to work, he can just relax all day and get on it! The pub’s open, how about a glass of wine instead of a coffee, what a great idea! That dude is obviously having a fun time...”
I laughed out loud (at the AV not at the guy, and out of earshot of the guy)because the AV picked a stupid time to try that trick when I was on a post-exercise high, and I went on my way and got a coffee. I’m still shaking my head over that one.

But the reality is, the AV does try all sorts of tricks to get us to drink.
I have a holiday coming up with friends that are big drinkers and the AV has suggested it’s ok to drink on the holiday weekend and stop when I come home. Does it think I was born yesterday? If I drink on the weekend I’ll just keep on drinking. I’ve proven that over and over. Although very persistent, thankfully the AV is actually being rather stupid at the moment

But I can’t get complacent. The AV could trip me up at anytime without warning, and without vigilance that poor guy coming out of the pub could easily be me

Dragon and Sao, I hope you encounter fewer morons today.

Vman, I hope you feel better and manage to get some sleep.

Hi, weekenders.

Need to catch up.

Not feeling good emotionally.

Something's gotta change.

Later.

Ha ha! It sounds like Sao ran into Dragon yesterday Hope you both run into only kind and caring people all day today!
MB, VMan, and others who are having a lousy day, hang in there. Today will make tomorrow look sooooo much better.
Willow, I could have written your post about AV. Yes! I've been there 31 times in the past 31 days.
As for me, I started this journey hating weekends because they are filled with drinking triggers. Over the past four weeks, I've slowly learned to find more sober things to do, turn down a beer when others are drinking, and gradually not dread Friday and Saturday nights so much. It still takes a lot of planning, and often beating back an especially ferocious AV. But it's easier this week than last.
I'm wishing you all a great, sober Thursday! (And all your funny foods and candies make me laugh I wish I could try them all!)

I pratically slept away my first two months (or more) of sobriety. Besides the fact that I was dead tired all the time, it helped to deal with the cravings.

Hope you get to feel better soon vMan and MB.

Interesting read, helps to somewhat explain my carb kick and mood lately.

I think I need a therapy light and a large plate of Turkey....

I'm glad that now that the initial dust is clearing you are satisfied with art school, PJ.

I predict that you will soon be thriving outright!

Anything worth having is worth fighting for!
