W E L C O M E ! Rusty. SR is a good place to interact, especially in the evenings (for me).

Thank you, DPAC414' so glad you didn't drink last night :-). Neither did I, read a good book and reminisced about the solitary walk I took with Rusty today. We walked for 6.8 kilometres down a beautiful country road that is closed to car traffic. It becomes a cross-country ski trail in the winter time.

There is a beautiful covered bridge across a fairly large creek, and even though it was pretty cool yesterday, Rusty could not resist a dip. I will take a photo of it and try to post it. I am sure it will have a serene effect on all who view it.

Thanks, everyone for your good wishes for me, and I want to send good wishes and courage to all of us on SR.

Now I am going to make the most of Day sixteen!!

Day 17 and I still am sober. Lots of walking and lots of reading. I really hope I can do it. Today I tie my 2018 sobriety record of seventeen days in July.
Last night I dreamed I was at a sporting event and I had a glass of wine, but as long as it's only in my dreams, I will be OK. Just shows me how it's always there...just lurking.

We will be here tomorrow when you break that record and make it to 18 days sober.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! Itís raining where Iím at so Iím gonna head to the office to get some OT and then watch a spooky zombie wrestling event downtown for Halloween. Day 14 for me.

As Dee and many others here always say, stay vigilant.

Rooting for you Rusty!

You can do this--it really does get easier once you break free of the gravity well of drinking.

Looking forward to seeing the pic of the covered bridge

I really am proud to say that I came VERY CLOSE to giving in to temptation today on Day 17, but I didnt😁 Went back to the beauty of my country lane/covered bridge with Rusty, and we walked another 6.5 km. Now I am safely at home watching my obsession: mountaineers scaling Everest!!

DPAC 414, enjoy those zombies. They actually look healthier than my mountaineers :-)

Day 15 for DPAC414 tomorrow and Day 18 for me.

What is this insomnia all about. I absolutely did everything I could think of to get to sleep, but there I was at 3:30 am, WIDE AWAKE. Didn't drink, not that it didn't occur to me, but I didn't give in. Day 18 is here, and hopefully I can keep up the good work.

Is insomnia to be expected during the first couple of weeks of recovery?

Great job! Happy to report I am also still sober.

The baking sounds amazing. Not a bad way to divert attention, honestly.

Glad you are doing well!! Keep moving forward.

Still counting the sober days. On this journey I am at day 22. Funny how sunny days make a huge difference in my mood. At least it isn't raining today so Rusty and I will do our 7 km walk in the woods❤️
