I would consider buying stuff if I wasn't on those damn medications. They don't do anything good that I can notice anyways.

If nothing else they are keeping you from going back to the nightmare of drinking so there is that.

Hiya Thrill, hope your new job is going well, first week can be stressful and draining.

I was wondering about the new job too. Not sure if you started it yet?
Thinking of you, Thrill.

I start the new job on Tuesday. For some reason I'm afraid to tell people I switched jobs.

Good luck! No need to tell anyone your business if it stresses you. Work for awhile and maybe it comes up casually and you don’t need to justify or explain—just that you changed jobs and (hopefully) are very happy in your new one!

I am kind of fiending again. I can't do anything because I don't have anything and I'm on meds.

I wish I had some fantastic fool proof method. I'm sorry Thrill I don't, just get stubborn, and do as Fishkiller said - ride it out.

Yes - hope the new job is a good fit. I know it takes a while to get used to a new gig.

I just got back from the first day. It was ok but I'm still afraid I'll get food poisoning touching the raw meat (even though it's packaged).

Is it normal to be afraid of touching raw meat that is covered in cellophane or is that neurotic? How can the salmonella not permeate a thin layer of cellophane. I want to just make my line Vegetarians and Vegans only, not because I'm against eating meat, but because I'll avoid all that gross salmonella crap.

Keep everything sanitary and don't lick the wrapper and you'll be ok. 🙂

We all have fears.

I agree with FK - you're responsible for your own hygiene so be really vigilant and I'm sure you'll be fine

I was definitely against AA for a long time but got tired of doing things alone and without guidance.
Once I realized they had no agenda except to maintain sobriety I was much more comfortable.

It's been 4 months now and if I get through the holidays sober I'll get through anything.
