What's everyone doing today? I've done some painting and household stuff. Think I'll read this afternoon. Hope everyone has a good day/night wherever in the world you are.
Thank you have a great day off to start my list

Hello everyone. I have been on and off of SR, and ready to hop back in with the June class. I have actually cut way back on my drinking, and had 24 days sober in May. But, I am only fooling myself by dancing on a slippery slope. I want and need to abstain completely.

Look forward to the mutual support of this class.

Hi guys & gals, just a quick check in.
I'm on Day 134 Doing very well too! I've really impressed myself and my friends, family & Dr.
Health has improved massively and waking up day after day without a hang over is SO worth it.

I hope everyone here is doing well.
To those struggling hang in there, it does get easier with time. If you have a relapse the most important thing is to not mentally beat yourself up. Pick yourself up,, dust yourself off and give it another shot.
I must of had at least 20 false starts before I got any true traction with my path of sobriety.

Oh I almost forgot too. Over this time my Wife and I have saved over $3334 by not drinking! How cool is that/
Make sure you enjoy the weekend everybody..

BTW I tried to edit my original post. However it seems we can no longer edit our posts? Or am I missing something?

Day 205,,this is possible. Just giving you guys some hope. The saying that it gets better still rings true for every week that goes by. Don't stop.
Hard work, 100% commitment , determination and perseverance is the key. Your whole life has to change not just removing the alcohol. Life is a lot different on this side.

I woke up early, coffee, yoga, cardio. Washed my car, ate a healthy lunch, then napped for a few hours. At day 62, the exhaustion has returned. I think the recent stress has left me without much reason to be awake and has drained my energy. I feel lost without work. Itís not a place Iím comfortable with, especially when staying sober. Tonight some shrimp n pasta, maybe an old scary movie and back to bed. Sleeping my way through this white knuckle time.

Day 1 Again

Thankful that I can come here without shame. I had one 10 day stretch of sobriety about 6 weeks ago. Then I just impulsively drank. Itís been a daily thing. But I have a job, maintain my home, walk 3 miles daily...believing a lie that I can be moderate. I know I have written about this before and because of that shame made me stay away from SR. So Iíd ask to be part of the June class. I need the help found here. My life is consumed with wanting alcohol to be part of everything. Thanks for listening.

Hi NB
I dunno if that's common in withdrawal but I've experienced the same before.
Stay focused and try not to worry too much - things should look better tomorrow

Hi - I'm wanting to sign up for June. I 'relapsed'. so today (June 2) will be day 1, again. I posted on another thread, after a couple months off alcohol, I took a drink yesterday, then the whole day got crazy. Woke up this morning feeling like death. Lucky I think I did not do anything too crazy, cannot remember getting home, found a taxi card in my pocket but dont remember. so I start sobriety again today, wish I could 'rewind' yesterday. Why did I think I could just have a couple of drinks? it never is just a couple. I think I just got lazy about sobriety, then the craving from hell kicked in.

Good morning Class of June Ď19, good morning day 3. I slept ok under the circumstances, a bit fitful, and so many dreams. I hear day 3 can be a challenge so I will be mindful of that.

What will you do to not drink today?

FT

Hello all, Day 2 morning check in for me.
Off to the gym shortly, then I need to catch up on a little work.
Evening plan: long walk with a friend to keep me out of trouble.
