I agree, keep posting CG. I joined my "Class of March" thread and posted there every day, sometimes several times per day - and I read lots and lots of posts. No such thing as posting too much or reading too much. There is a deep well of wisdom and care on this site. It's a fantastic resource.

Here's the direct link to the Class of April 2019. You'll find others going through the same stages. They'll be happy to meet you should you want to post in the thread:

3. I am grateful to have fresh air coming into my room tosqy[/b][/i]" for you


I have just done this. I don't know if it helps but I have pinned it next to my calendar on the wall. I have a whole side of paper. It sounds silly like 'I am grateful i have enough food in kitchen'. ' I am grateful I have a kitchen'. and so on.. I stopped after 1 sheet of paper. But it does make me think and life could be ok.
Thanks.
Not silly at all. There are alot of people who don't have food to eat. Who dont have kitchens. It really is the little things confused guy.

My gratitude list today goes like this:-
1. I am grateful to be going to bed clean and sober.
2 i am grateful to be alive.
3. I am grateful to have been given a 2nd chance at life
4. I am grateful I did not need to drink today
5 I am grateful I have a warm bed to sleep in tonight.
6. I am grateful I am a sober and present mummy for my daughter today
7. I am grateful for SR and everyone here, for sharing their struggles and their triumphs alike.

I could go on and on. I have a lot to be grateful for today.

Thank you for sharing confused guy, you have helped keep me sober.

I hope you get a good night's sleep or at least as much rest as you can. Tomorrow is a new day x x

Got Day 2! - Just waking up - slept for some hours which is good. Day 2 and it's over 6 hours into day 3. Going to sleep a lot I think, although I am awake it is 09:28 and I ust want to go back to sleep. But I will get some water and some porridge first and send email to work saying Im not feeling well. Then sleep as much as possible. Seems like more I sleep, the more I want to sleep right now!... Hopefully go to work tomorrow.

And that's how we do it!

One day at a time, and they add up.

Well done. Stay close.

Well it is 0457 here and I am showered, ready for work, and get into day 2. I can't say that my head is clear but at least I am sober. I will log back on when I get home from work. Thanx to all.

Just checking in! - It is 21:45 here and tonight I will make day 3.
Feeliing lot better than Saturday, slept a LOT today, but also I am seeing doctor tomorrow for blood test. I decided I want to do this and whatever the results are I will not drink. But of course I am worried.
Also I did some cleaning, not much but it is a start. Washing machine going most of day while I was sleeping. Ate some food in the morning and just ate some yoghourt and some chocolate.
And tonight at 03:00 I make day 3 !. I still have some pain and I am not afraid to say I am scared of having tests. Also getting hot and cold a lot, shaky-ness has seemed to settled, and felt really low for a while today. But now Im feeling positive. I found there is an AA meeting at weekend, I will try this - if it is not for me then I have at least tried it. I am going to try and add 6 things every night to the gratitude list I have. I've learned so much in a few days from people here, and I know if it wasnt for you then I wouldnt be here now.
