I'm SOOOO GRATEFUL I FINALLY logged back in after 3 weeks!!!! I was feeling so alone. My husband goes to NA meetings "in person" & I guess I'm not ready to stand up & "introduce" myself yet. How can it be anonymous if you have to tell them your first name? I have an unusual first name so that kinda' blows the blend in "anonymous thing." I'll be here for you cuz' some REAL GOOD people were here for me when I first logged on 6 weeks ago. I have 11 sober days (being off meth) & I'd love to tell you that it's totally easy, but all we can do is "live one day @ a time," right everyone?

Hi Lulu, hang in there girl! You can do it!


Nogard, congrats on 2 days. What comes after that? DAY THREE!!! Everyone with lots of sobriety all had a day three so keep looking ahead.

Flower, 11 days sober is awesome. You deserve a better life than meth. You have to much ahead to look forward to. Don't lose sight of your dreams.

Tomorrow will be DAY 10!!!!
Almost made it into the double digits. I can't wait for that token of sobriety...you know that cool little chip. I am only doing it one day at a time. Hanging in here fairly well.

I'm a noobie and want to be counted! All I can say so far is that it's easier than trying to quit smoking ... although only slightly. Let's hope I fare better with this, then get back to that.

I must be on some kind of bad emotional rollercoaster tonight and it is rough. I've been crying for hours and I don't even know what I'm crying about!!!!!

Someone asked me what was wrong and I was just like "I don't know!!!!!"

felt really silly then.

((AngelHugs)) Don't worry, I think it's just part of the process. I know I cry at the stupidest things lately, commercials on the t.v. and radio, in meetings when someone shares their pain or shame...I've been wondering what is wrong with me too. But you know, I think that it is simply this: For years I did not/could not/would not deal with any of my emotions, I drank/used to block them out and now, I'm finally FEELING my feelings. Working through them is not easy, but drinking/using to block them is even worse I think.

Everyone keeps telling me it will get better and I just have to have faith in that and keep on keeping on.

I'm so glad to see you back here with us. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry for the loss of your dad.

Honey, take care of yourself and know that I am thinking of you.
