Delighted to be here!

I just wanted to reach out to our friends who are caught in the polar vortex and hope they are staying as safe as they can.

I feel somewhat embarrassed on behalf of my own country - we have a light dusting of snow and everything shuts down, schools, transport etc.

Nice to see familiar faces.
I'm on day 2. I think I will probably post in both classes as well. I need as much support as I can get. Looking forward to a sober Febuary weekend.

I'm committing to a sober February (one hour and one day at a time). I love day 1 of any month: it marks a new beginning and start. Welcome to all who are in for Feb!

I've tried this multiple times. Think I'm going to check out Celebrate Recovery. I also have about 60 Naltrexone. Naltrexone never worked bc I would just not take it when I wanted to drink. My plan is to get an accountability partner to ask me if I took it that day. It makes me very ill if I drink on it. Just gotta take it first thing in the morning and it takes the decision to drink off the table for the day.


We will see. I just moved to the beach and the spring and summer will be very tempting. Gotta get a head start here in February and take it one day at a time.


Glad to be here. My life is and has become almost unmanageable. I've got to get better. My momma didn't raise me to be a drunk.

Hi everyone. Im back for another attempt. Ive hit a pretty dark place this week and can feel myself spiralling. Been kidding myself for months that Im in control and only drinking once a week. Three times this week, so drunk this morning I didnt wake up for work and missed a meeting I was supposed to be at. Alarm bells going off. I do not want this.

Hi Awkwardkitty!
You can do this. Post often. Next week can be a much better week. Be gentle with yourself the next few days.
